    I gave it 4 stars because they are delicious. But for the instructions, it needed to say please have about 3 people to man each station. Or at least better instructions on how to make this work. Getting the melted, white chocolate onto the oreo ball and the faces on them before the chocolate gets hard or the ball starts getting mushy was not EASY at all. Also, use a double boiler for your chocolate, so that it will stay soft for dipping, and allow you to dip one, let the chocolate set a little but not hard so you can apply the face, and oreo/rolo hat. then repeat for each ball.

    This recipe just didn't work for me. It didn't help that I couldn't get white chips, so I used white chocolate, and it was yellow and not very snowman-like (I added white food coloring, and that wasn't a good idea; it made the chocolate seize). I ended up just melting dark chocolate, cutting the frozen cookie balls in half, dipping them in chocolate and placing them flat side down, and decorating them like ornaments with Christmas sprinkles and coconut. Even dipped, chilled, and fresh from the fridge, though, they were pretty mushy.
