Calling all home bakers and cookie gurus! We’re excited to announce an incredible new contest, Chocolate Chip Cookies Reinvented, that will allow you to flex your baking braun and win some bragging rights and prizes in the process!
As you know, the staple product of our company here at Mrs. Fields is our incredible classic chocolate chip cookie. (As Mary Poppins would say, it’s practically perfect in every way.) But this contest isn’t about a classic chocolate chip cookie, it’s about chocolate chip cookies reinvented. Like the reinvention of a classic car or the remake of a classic song, we’re dreaming about the deliciously original ways you might give chocolate chip cookies an extreme makeover: delicious edition.
And the prizes? Oh, they are grand! Our favorite cookie reinvention will win first place and a cash prize of $250! The winner will also win a bakeware package valued at $100 and have their recipe featured on the Mrs. Fields Secrets blog to share with our readers.
Four runners-up will win a bakeware package valued at $100, which includes a baking pan with cover, cooling rack, heat resistant spatula, stainless steel measuring spoon set, Mrs. Fields apron and oven mitt set, and a Mrs. Fields Cookie Book autographed by Debbi Fields! The runners-up will also have their recipes featured on the Mrs. Fields Secrets blog.
- Submit your original recipe by midnight, June 30, 2011 ET to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a photograph of your cookies, and a sentence or two about yourself. Use subject line: COOKIE REINVENTION RECIPE.
- Entrants must be 18 years or older.
- Recipes will be reviewed and tested by the Mrs. Fields Secrets blog staff. Top contending recipes will be reproduced in our home kitchens and taste-tested by our staff, after which a first place winner and four runners-up will be chosen.
- Winners will be notified via email and later announced on the Mrs. Fields Secrets blog.
