Personal Notes:
This may seem like alot to do.......To be honest with you, for the cookies I just add everything in one big bowl and mix until it is all blended. That leaves for less TIME and LESS MESS. They seem to still turn out okay the way I do them. I also think it is easier to make this desert the night before you want to have them because you can keep them in the refrigerator. Hope it all works out!!!!

refrigerate about 15-20 minutes before serving or until the chocolate drizzle is set.
