Chocolate Salty Balls, round 2

Today I tried this recipe.

It allowed me to use my double-boiler - a wedding gift I've never actually used until today!


I followed one person's review and stuck toothpicks in the peanut-butter balls before putting them in the fridge. However, I found that the toothpicks did not aid that much in the dipping. It would be just as useful to keep ONE toothpick next to your double boiler and use it over and over again to stab the ball after you douse it in chocolate, then place it on the cookie sheet.

Fun with the double boiler.
I also followed another review and put in about a tablespoon of shortening to make the layer of chocolate a little thinner on the balls. Uh... if that was a "thin" layer of chocolate, I'd hate to see what it would be like without the shortening. I ran out of chocolate before finishing all the balls!!!

Ahh. Chocolate ball goodness! I was just kidding about the salt. Tee hee, "balls."

Yum! Are any of those going to make it my way?! Phil made something similar at Christmas and they were delicious! They used paraffin in the chocolate and it made it easier to work with.
