We made this candy for Christmas and it was a HUGE hit! I cut the amount of powdered sugar like the other reviewers said to do, and it worked perfectly. I made balls that were about 1/2 inch across, and dipped them in the chocolate mixture. I've been dipping chocolate for years, but I never tried mixing a bit of shortening in, and it made the chocolate so smooth and easy to work with! In my opinion, Nestle Tollhouse semi-sweet is the best melting chocolate there is. We've tried lots of kinds, and it melts the smoothest. But maybe with shortening other kinds of chocolate work well too. Anyway, these were a huge hit (both to make and to eat) and we'll definitely be making these again!
