  4. CHOCOLATE MELTING INSTRUCTIONS: Microwave: use a microwave safe bowl and heat chocolate in 20 second increments, stirring between heat cycles. Stovetop: melt chocolate over low heat, stirring constantly, remove from heat as soon as chocolate is melted; double boiler can be used if desired. Slow Cooker: add chocolate to oven safe dishes or a crock pot divider and place in slow cooker (mason jars work well for this); cover, set to low for 1 - 2 hours, stir before using. You can melt both at once using this method.
  5. Dip the balls in melted chocolate tapping off the excess chocolate and place back onto the parchment paper. Drizzle the white chocolate on top of the candies. Allow chocolate to set before serving.
