    Once you are ready have waxed paper prepared and spread out. Dip balls in chocolate and place on wax paper. Allow to thoroughly cool and set up. Tip: You will find the easiest method for you. I have small plastic tongs I use for dipping and use a butter knife to shear off the excess on bottom before placing on paper. Tip: I have made by balls and left in fridge until next day till ready to do the chocolate. Enjoy! Store on wax paper layers in air-tight containers until ready for use.
