As much as I love living up here in the bay area, I HATE that B.J.’s is quite a journey from me. I have to either pay a bridge toll or drive over half an hour just to get to one. I crave pizookies on a daily basis, so this situation is quite unfortunate for me.
On the other hand, I could try and make a substitute at home in my kitchen. This recipe may not be the exact one, but it comes close enough to subdue my pizookie cravings.
I served the cookies warm, straight from the oven. I also nuked them in the microwave for 20 seconds the next day before serving and it was just as good. I topped it with a generous scoop of Ben and Jerry’s Coffee Heath Bar Crunch ice cream, but feel free to use any ice cream flavor you’d like. Everything goes good with chocolate chip cookies! … except maybe sherbet.
Seriously. These babies were delicious. I may or may not have eaten all ten lava cookies by myself and am not one bit ashamed. Recipe from Kevin & Amanda.
