  6. Using a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop as a measurement,spoon batter into paper-lined muffin tins.
  7. Bake for 20-30 minutes.
  8. Microwave the white candy coating and whipping cream in a microwavable bowl for 1 minute. Stir and continue to heat for 30 second intervals until the mixture is smooth. (Be careful not to overheat)
