I used my 1" scoop that I use to make cookies and only ended up with 28 balls instead of 48 but that was really not a big deal. I guess they are just a little bigger. I, too, had trouble keeping the semi-sweet chocolate warm enough to dip all the balls. I think next time, instead of freezing for just 10 minutes, I will freeze overnight. I think the balls may have begun to thaw by the time I got to the last few. . . other than that, totally yummy!
