You can use a fork, a spoon or your fingers but I find that to be messy. I suggest grabbing this Dipping Tool 3-Piece Set that will make it MUCH easier to dip the cookies into the chocolate.
Dip the cookie into the chocolate while on the dipper making sure you cover all of the cookie. Then tap the dipper gently against the bowl you have melted the chocolate in to get off any excess chocolate and then lay flat on a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
I find it best to use a bowl or a short glass when melting the chocolate to make it easier to dip the cookies in the chocolate.
How to Store Chocolate covered Cookies
The Chocolate covered nutter Butter Cookies should be refrigerated or kept in a cool dark place. Store in an air tight container as chocolate can pick up odors.
When you are storing them in an airtight container you will want to layer the cookies on a single layer. Then place a piece of parchment paper and layer more. Continue doing this until you have filled up the container.
Using parchment paper between the chocolate dipped cookies will keep them from sticking together. It will also make it easier to remove the cookies from the container.

Melt the chocolate using the microwave or a double boiler.
Once Melted dip the cookies in the chocolate. Place the cookies on a wax paper lined baking sheet.
Before the chocolate hardens take a fork and make marks in it like a mummy would have and then add the two eyes.
Let them sit for about 5-6 minutes before you touch them so the chocolate completely hardens on them.
If you are not going to eat them right away put them in a plastic air tight container and store them in the fridge.
