Baseball Cookies

These no-bake cookies are almost as fun to make as they are to give. They are quick and easy to assemble and they look great! The chocolate does dry fast, so make sure to place the licorice pieces on right after dipping. If the melted chocolate starts to harden, simply reheat for a few seconds and continue dipping.

1 12 ounce box wafer cookies, crushed

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

14 ounces sweetened condensed milk

2 ounces melted unsweetened chocolate

6 pieces red string licorice

16 ounces white chocolate wafers

Line a work surface with waxed paper. In a large bowl mix together the condensed milk, crushed cookies, walnuts, and unsweetened chocolate. Take a tablespoonful of dough and roll into a ball. Place on the waxed paper and flatten gently. Repeat with the remaining dough, placing the cookies one inch apart. Cut the licorice into 1 1/2 inch pieces and set aside. Melt the white chocolate until smooth over a double boiler or in a microwave, stirring frequently. Dip the cookies into the chocolate using a fork and quickly, before the chocolate dries, place two licorice pieces on the cookies to form the baseball threads. Let dry thoroughly before packaging or giving.

Makes 5 dozen cookies.
