    These weren't too bad to make. I followed the tips on freezing before and after you make the balls... this helped. One more tip, in my opinion is to chop the cookies in a blender or food processor instead of pounding them in a bag. I pulsed mine in my blender and it made the crumbs fine which is probably what kept it from being gooey. I added a tad of canola oil to the chocolate to help thin it and melted in a glass bowl, The glass stays hot which helped my choc stay warm longer. I've only "dipped" once before and I dipped strawberries and some Oreos (yum!) so I wouldn't say I'm experienced in dipping and I think they turned out pretty good.

    these are so easy to make. i didn't have any issue rolling into balls. i freeze the balls for about an hour, then dip in melted chocolate. i ended up using about three times as much melted chocolate as the recipe calls for. i used assorted sprinkles to look more festive
