Slowly add the powdered sugar and beat. Knead on a surface sprinkled with more sugar until dough is stiff. (The stiffer the better when it come to the dipping part!) Add more sugar while kneading if the dough is sticky.


Roll dough into 1" balls. Place the balls on wax paper and press flat. They should be about 1/2 inch. Let the patties dry for at least 2 hours on each side.


When you are ready to start dipping, melt chocolate & shortening it a double boiler; stirring constantly until smooth. Using 1 Tbs of shortening for every 6 oz. of chocolate. Keep chocolate warm for dipping. Do not microwave the chocolate. It's seperates and burns very easily!
