Gooey Chocolate Coconut Bars

I think I may have a little-itty-bitty problem.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Marble Cookies

The holidays put me in the mood for cookies! Of course, as you may already know, I love and adore cookies.  Since it is the holidays I am in the mood for pretty cookies that taste really good.  Those kind of cookies are not only good for nibbling on as you wrap presents but for great for giving as gifts.  While thumbing through my cookie folder, and yes I do have a whole folder devoted to cookie recipes, I came across an old culinary...
