"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Mix the first 4 ingredients. Roll into balls and refrigerate. Melt the chips and wax in the top of a double boiler. About 30 minutes before dipping, place balls in freezer. With a toothpick, stab each ball and dip in chocolate mixture. Place on wax paper and let set to dry. Remove toothpicks.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is our Christmas favorite. I don't always use the toothpick method. Sometimes I use a fork to set the balls on when dipping them in the chocolate. In any case, they are seldom around long enough for anyone to look at. For some reason, they disappear!
