We are looking for a vanilla js solution that will append a common html block after each instance of a dd class name = "alpha".

Example of current state:
<div class="image><dl><dd class="alpha">text string 1</dd></dl></div>
<div class="image><dl><dd class="alpha">text string 2</dd></dl></div>
<div class="image><dl><dd class="alpha">text string n</dd></dl></div>

Open in new window

Example of desired state:
<div class="image><dl><dd class="alpha">text string 1</dd><dd class="beta">New html string </dd></dl></div>
<div class="image><dl><dd class="alpha">text string 2</dd><dd class="beta">New html string</dd></dl></div>
<div class="image><dl><dd class="alpha">text string n</dd><dd class="beta">New html string </dd></dl></div>
