Oh my!! TOTAL COMFORT FOOD! Hot Gooey, Creamy peanut butter and jelly with melted chocolate, What more can you ask for! Oh yes filled into a soft tender dough when fried nice and buttery crisp! I came up with these when we made pierogies this year and had left over dough. I asked my Daughter if she had any preserves, then Peanut butter lightly mixed them together and then asked for chocolate chips and she had mini ones which worked out great!!!! THE REST IS HISTORY! The filling is an estimate so be gentle on your reviews! Please do use my dough Pierogie [peer-Oh-Gee] Potato Pierogies Perogies or your favorite.

This was total comfort food. I loved the peanut butter/jelly combo with the chocolate. I wouldn't have thought of that. Very easy directions to follow. I had never made pierogi before but I will from now on! Thanks for this fun recipe. MADE FOR ZWT4 DAFFY DAFFODILS
My review of Pierogie [peer-Oh-Gee] Potato Pierogies Perogies #48587 states how I feel about the dough (the only one I use now!) The use of PB&J and chocolate is very creative. Great when you want dessert instead of dinner. Made for Holiday Tag. Thanks Rita, you've posted another winner!
I Tagged this recipe for Zaar tag. This was very good, I really love the dough. Im not a big fan of pnut butter and jelly but this was great. The chocolate chips were really good with them too. Thanks for posting. I will try your dough recipe with some other combinations of filling as well. My kids and neigbor adored these!! Karen
