Yes it is! Here's an easy (and delicious) way to create a 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.
