When ready coat in chocolate. follow package instructions for melting chocolate.
Line a second tray or cookie sheet and remove mint discs from freezer. Dip bottome side of disc in melted chocolate then place on fork and using a spoon, pur chocolate over the top of mind to cover the entire mint. Tap off excess chocolate and then place on new wax paper covered tray for chocolate to set. Repeat with all discs.
Store in airtight container for up to 2 weeks. You can also freeze and take out to thaw as needed.

Note: keep the chocolate warm while dipping or it will cool off fast and harden before all discs are dipped. Using a small crockpot is a way to do that.

Enjoy!
