Foodie Friday: Gilding the Store-bought Cookie Plus Goodies & Giveaways

Welcome to the February 18th Foodie Friday. Next week will be our second anniversary for this event and everyone is cordially invited. There will be a drawing for something fabulous! Also, if you haven't entered the copper cookware giveaway, there's still plenty of time.
If you'd like a chance to win a copy of Gone With a Handsomer Man, there's a contest going on at Starpulse.
Now for today's foodie offering...
When I need a dessert but I'm in a rush, I'm fond of gilding store-bought cookies.

What You Need:
  • Store bought cookies (or homemade, of course!)
  • Microwave dipping chocolate
  • peanut butter chips
  • squeeze bottle (a clean mustard bottle will work--or a fork, if you have a steady hand).
  • waxed paper

Melt the chocolate according to directions on the container. Melt the peanut butter chips in the microwave (I add a bit of milk after microwaving until the mixture reaches a "spreadable" consistency.

Dip each cookie, just the edge. Alternate chocolate and peanut butter. Place remaining chocolate into a squeeze bottle. Set on waxed paper and drizzle.
