Doubling the confectioners sugar will make the candy easier to handle, but DON'T DO IT! You want that creamy, melt-in-your-mouth experience. Instead, work with the candy. Freeze before handling, drop in teaspoons on waxed paper and freeze AGAIN, roll drops between hands and freeze AGAIN. Then dip. I do add one block of parafin to the semi-sweet chocolate chips for that glossy finish. Use one toothpick for dipping, another for removing the candy, and put a little piece of pecan over the hole (a hint for what's inside). I also toast my pecans before adding to recipe. I'm not very old, but all my aunts that make candy say mine are the best they've ever had, and beautiful, too! It's worth every minute.
