Add the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla.
Stir in the oats, mini chocolate chips and M&M's.
Let mixture chill in the fridge for at least an hour (it'll be easier to work with!).
Roll the mixture into balls; set in fridge while you make the coating.
In a microwave-safe bowl, stir together the chocolate chips (or peanut butter chips) and shortening.
Microwave at 50% power for 45 seconds. Stir. If it's not completely melted, microwave in 15 second intervals (at 50% power) until melted.
Dip the balls in the coating and place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet.

Let chill and enjoy!
