In a double boiler, warm the semi-sweet chocolate chips over low-medium heat. Stir continuously until melted and smooth. You can also melt the chocolate using the microwave in 30-second increments.

Pour the melted chocolate into a smaller bowl for easier dipping.

Using a toothpick, dip each Oreo ball into the melted chocolate and place it back on the baking sheet. Set aside the remaining melted chocolate for later use.
