No Bake Girl Scout Tagalong Cookies

Can you believe that it is “Back to School” time already?  It seems like summer break just started!  To celebrate the beginning of a new year, we had all our students from the school of preaching over for a cookout last weekend.  We grilled hamburgers & hotdogs for the main course with sides of my favorite potato salad, coleslaw, and baked beans. For dessert, I made a platter with various cookies.  One of the favorite new recipes of the evening were these No Bake Girl Scout Tagalong Cookies.  They were easy to make and froze beautifully.

If you follow the blog, you’ve heard me say it before, but don’t skimp on the melting chocolate.  There’s no comparison in the taste of cheap bark and something good like the Ghiradelli Chocolate Melting Wafers. Just a minute or so in the microwave and you have the most smooth, velvety melted chocolate.  Perfect way to surround this peanut butter cookie!
