Just set another cookie with the same name.
Your first cookie is set with:
setcookie ("TestCookie", "Test Value");
If you want to update cookie use:
setcookie ("TestCookie", "Updated Value");
Now the previous cookie gets overwritten. by the new cookie.

i would appreciate if u could paste in the portion of code u r currently working with, not just descriptions of what u r trying 2 do. however after reading ur qns, i think here's how it could be done:
setcookie("CookieName", $hiddenvarname, time()+86400 /* this is the expiry time in seconds*/);
