    kraft kitchens tips : HOW TO EASILY DIP BALLS : To easily coat 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 firm.

    VARIATION Sprinkle cookie balls with colored sugar or sprinkles instead of decorating with the Mini OREO Cookies and decorating icing.

    Note : when I made these , when I added the peanutbutter to the melted chocolate it made the melted snow brown , so I did some with melted almond bark and the turned out great!!
