Cookie Frustrations

Hey all. I'm grumbling about an absolutely fantastic recipe that is being stubborn with me. The cookie recipe in question is Domestic Witch's Death by Chocolate balls (http://domesticwitch.blogspot.com/2009/12/death-by-chocolate-balls.html) I've made everything successfully--up until the point that I dip them in chocolate. I have white chocolate, and well--it doesn't really melt. It does for a very short period of time and then becomes like chalk. I've even added vegetable shortening to liquify it--gratuitous amounts--still no dice. My balls are looking pretty sad indeed...

(Tee-hee! Okay, I couldn't help myself... He's got big balls, and she's got big balls, but we've got the biggest balls of them all!)


  1. Tip: try veggie oil. a liquid fat may help in making it more liquid and less solid by the difference in chemicals.

  2. Are you adding the shortening in as you melt, or afterwards? About a tablespoon of shortening per cup of white chocolate chips usually does the trick if you melt them all together.


I love hearing from people! ^_^
