Since I have the wonderful new cookie press I can make lots of Spritz.  So I decided to make a new type, Peanut Butter Spritz and since peanut butter and chocolate go so well together I wanted to find a way to make them work together in this recipe. 
Chocolate chips won’t go through the cookie press so I decided to coat the bottom of them with melted chocolate (my daughter was home to help).  The cookies taste great even before coating them so I left some without chocolate coating for variety.  It seemed to work best to work in small batches when coating them, melting only a little chocolate at a time.  It was messy work but the taste was worth it.

Look the cookie tray is filling up nicely.
