  2. Place dough between two pieces of waxed paper. Roll it to a thickness of 1/4 inch. Freeze dough for 15 minutes or until firm.
  3. Use a tiny biscuit cutter to cut out patties, or form little patties with your hands. Put the patties on a freezer-safe plate and refreeze again for 10 minutes.
  4. Melt Wilton Candy Dips in a Wilton melting pot or in the microwave.
  5. Remove 1/4 of the patties from the freezer. Using a fork, dip each patty into the chocolate to fully cover all sides. Place the patties on a piece of parchment paper and sprinkle with crushed candy canes.
  6. Repeat process with remaining patties that are in the freezer.
