  2. Chill in refrigerator until firm enough to handle, about 2 hours.
  3. Melt chocolate in the top of a double boiler and then allow to cool to room temperature.
  4. Form rounded teaspoons of the nut mixture into balls and place on a baking sheet covered in wax paper.
  5. Dip balls in into the melted chocolate 2 at a time. Using 2 forks, turn the candy, coating completely with the chocolate. Tap fork to eliminate excess chocolate, then place on on the wax paper.
