"I made it with peanut butter cookies to help cut the sweet of the choc frosting. I also put them on a stick to help with the mess. Couldnt find the choc wafer cookies so I had to use choc covered shortbread cookies (100 calorie packs) but they still turned out GREAT! I made them for my daughters preschool class and they were a big hit!!"

"I got a lot of compliments on how these looked! I think they were actually too sweet for the children, maybe not. One suggestion, do not under-bake cookies, this makes them too floppy and can break."
