That was much less frustrating and they looked beautiful when I was done (plus tasted excellent)."

I..." See moret had to be frozen, rolled into balls and refrozen to coat the bals with the chocolate. Then I could only do 10 at a time because the dough became soft again. Thumbs down on this recipe."
