Sweet Tooth Alert: Sandra Lees Chocolate Truffles

From Denny: OK, all you sugarholics out there in web land, THIS is your recipe! Guaranteed to knock your sweet tooth off its feet and into nirvana land.

As usual, Sandra Lee is quite clever for devising recipes you can do on the fly - or when you forgot you owed something for your kid's school function. :) This recipe is nothing but dressed up and finessed chocolate frosting combined with more powdered sugar, vanilla extract and cocoa powder. Definitely ranks in the "seriously sweet" column. If you see someone feeling faint, just pop one of these truffle candies into their mouths and they will revive instantly.

Since Food Network has yet to allow embedding of their videos... to watch Sandra Lee walk you through this simple recipe, go here.
