Mix everything together, refrigerate for a half hour or longer and then form into balls. Return to fridge and let chill at least an hour (longer would be best). Note: To make it easier to roll in chocolate, freeze for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.
Melt the following together in a double –boiler: one package chocolate chips, one square sweet chocolate. Keep on low so that chocolate remains soft.
Drop balls into chocolate mixture one at a time using a fork to roll them so that the chocolate will cover. Let set on parchment paper in fridge. They freeze well.
Note: The balls can also refrigerated over night or may be frozen, and then dipped in chocolate.
