Recipe Tips

Size-WiseThese cookie balls have their own-built in portion control and can be enjoyed on occasion but remember to keep tabs on portions.

How to Easily Dip Cookie BallsTo easily coat cookie balls with the melted chocolate, add balls, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Use 2 forks to roll balls in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove balls with forks, letting excess chocolate drip back into bowl. Place balls in prepared pan; let stand until chocolate coating is firm.

NoteIf any melted chocolate remains after all balls are coated, store in tightly covered container at room temperature until ready to use for another use.
