Recipe Tips
  • How to Easily Dip Cookie Balls
    Keep the cookie balls refrigerated until ready to dip in the melted 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. If coating becomes too thick, add up to 2 tsp. shortening to each 450 g of candy wafers.
  • Note
    You will need 1-1/3 pkg. (300 g each) Oreo Cookies to get the 36 cookies needed to prepare this recipe.
  • Substitute
    Prepare using 2-2/3 pkg. (170 g each) white baking chocolate (450 g) tinted with a few drops each red and yellow food colouring.
