This week's contest for Your Best Chocolate Cookie is a special one: the winning cookie will be featured at the after-party for the upcoming Brooklyn Chocolate Experiment on Sunday, November 15th in Brooklyn, NY. At the Experiment, amateur chefs will compete by creating their most delicious chocolate-based dishes -- ranging from sweet to savory to chocolate beverages. The audience, along with a panel of judges (among them Bon Appetit's Andrew Knowlton, ice cream guru Ben Van Leeuwen, Tasting Table Editor in Chief Nick Fauchald, and yours truly) pick their favorites. Prizes and cash will be given to the winner.

You have until midnight tonight to submit your cookie recipes, and if you're interested in competing at the event or in buying tickets, go here.
