How to Easily Dip Cookie Balls
Keep the cookie balls refrigerated until ready to dip in the melted candy coating. Then, add balls, in batches, to bowl of melted coating. Use 2 forks to roll balls in coating until evenly coated. Remove balls with forks, letting excess coating drip back into bowl. Place balls in prepared pan; let stand until firm.

Note
If candy coating becomes too thick, add up to 2 tsp. shortening to each 16 oz. of candy wafers.
