    grandma2969's Note:

    this is just like when I was a kid making mud pies...cookie balls are formed by quickly breaking up warm chocolate chip cookies, pressing them into balls and refrigerating them till firm, then dipping them into more melted chocolate coating...this the mud ball can never have too much chocolate...
