Stick It: Chocolate Covered Fig Newtons on a Stick for Serious Eats

Did you know that yesterday was National Fig Newton Day?

If you dropped the ball on this little-known holiday, don't despair. Here's an easy (and delicious) way to create a belated celebration: dress up your Newtons by putting them on a stick and coating them in chocolate. The chocolate works beautifully with the buttery cookie crust and mellow figgy filling flavor, taking the vaguely healthy snack cookie into full-fledged dessert territory.

Why on a stick? Well, it's a matter of both function—the sticks make it easier to dip the cookies—and form, because everyone knows that everything tastes better on a stick.

For the full entry and recipe, visit Serious Eats!

I was never a big Fig Newton fan (although I liked the other fruit Newton-esque cookies), but considering all things on sticks do in fact taste better than their stick-less counterparts I think I'll have to give these a try...
