  • 24 ounces Hershey's Milk Chocolate with Almonds (1 1/2 pounds, or about six 4.25 ounce bars)
  • 12 ounces Cool Whip whipped topping (1 1/2 (8 oz.) tubs)
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans or crushed graham crackers or vanilla wafers (for rolling)


  • Break up the chocolate bars into a large pot.
  • Heat over low heat on the stove until chocolate is completely melted. Stir occasionally while melting. Remove from heat when chocolate has completely melted.
  • Place the 12 ounces of Cool Whip into a large mixing bowl. Pour the melted chocolate over the Cool Whip and fold together until everything is well blended.
  • Cover and chill for at least two hours, or overnight.
  • Place chopped pecans or crushed cookies into a small bowl. Using a small cookie scoop, drop balls of the chilled chocolate mixture into the chopped nuts or crushed cookies. Gently shake the bowl to cover the chocolate balls with nuts or cookie crumbs.
  • Pick up the balls and quickly, but gently roll them between your palms to smooth them out.
  • Place on a lined cookie sheet and chill or freeze until ready to serve.
