Start this project at least the day before you need them, and set aside at least a few hours for rolling and dipping. You will need a package of 50 paper sucker sticks and a styrofoam block. If you need to add more melted candy to your bowl, do not put un-melted candy in with the melted candy and re-heat it, it will overcook the candy. Rather, melt the new candy and then pour it into the already melted candy.

- 6Place candy coating in a small, deep dish (a short drinking glass works well) and microwave at half power for 1 minute, and then for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until candy is melted. Do not over-cook candy!
- 7Working with 5 balls at a time (keep the rest in the refrigerator), place the tip of a sucker stick into the candy and then push into a ball, about ¾ of the way through.
