I am making these right now and thought I would take a break to write my review. First of all, I didn't have a problem rolling my peanut butter mixture into balls that others had. I did leave in the fridge for about 4 hours though. Secondly, this is NOT enough white chocolate. I have 5 balls that didn't get any. I melted my chocoate over a double boiler instead of the microwave. I'm not sure it helped any, but I didn't have any problems with burning. Also, I found it is essential to put toothpicks into the balls, freeze for about 45 min. and then dip. You can leave a little bit uncovered by the toothpick, as this is where the iris will go. I took toothpicks out before I did the iris and just did with my finger. I put the choc chips upside down after I placed the iris on. I then drug a wooden toothpick dipped in red food coloring, for the bloodshot effect. OVERALL, this was a very tedious undertaking. I was exremely frustrated at first, but after doing the above, it got better. I would possibly make these again but only to share with VERY special people on VERY special occasions. * I am updating my review because I had not tasted these. I just thought they were super sweet and I could hardly eat one (I am a sugar addict!). SO, I just took away a star because not only were these a pain to make, but I didn't find myself wanting to eat them. Neither did anyone else in my house and a lot of these got thrown away. :-( But they are super cute!
