Chocolate Dipped Fig Newtons...On-A-Stick

I recently helped host a baby shower, the theme was Milk and Cookies.  Lots...and lots...and lots...of details and pictures to come next week.  Each of the gals hosting brought a cookie for our cookie bar.  I was trying to think of something different to add as a coversation piece to a cookie bar.  I also wanted something I could do a few days in advance b/c I knew I'd be in the middle of a cupcake-bake-a-thon the day before.  And then, on National Fig Newton Day, I saw this cute idea here.  This project was even easier than I thought it would be, and I heart sticks any day of the week!  I'm working on a 'week' of stick projects to post....soon...in between a bunch of parties and get togethers I'm also working on, and this little thing called a job that keeps interrupting.  Enough on that....on to fig newtons. 
The supplies are just fig newtons, sticks, and chocolate (semi sweet, or milk chocolate). 
One bag of newtons can be covered in about a regular size bag of chocolate chips.  I slipped the sticks in the center of the cookie...no breaking, very nice....
I did the whole bowl in the microwave/30 second/stir/repeat until the morsels are melted (about 1 1/2 minute). 
Dip or spoon over. 
Dry on wax paper. 
Taste test. 
Bag 'em up and add a ribbon. 
More to come....next week.
