  3. Put dark chocolate into a small metal bowl in a hot oven so that it melts slowly. Be sure that t doesn’t get heated for too long or it will break down the chocolate.
  4. Once you have balled all of the dough into balls you can place them on a baking paper and chill them for a few minutes in the freezer so you can dip them in the chocolate.
  5. Once dipped, you can place them on a piece of baking paper and place them back into a chill to set the dark chocolate.
  6. Later you can serve them for a nice treat!
