Your new favorite quick chocolate fix: Brownie Batter Truffles. So easy and so chocolatey!
This is my secret recipe.
A secret recipe for an easy treat that always satisfies my sweet tooth when I don’t have time to bake. And now I’m going to give it all away. Because we are all friends here, right?
It uses just a few basic ingredients, a little chillin’ time and off it goes, straight into your mouth to melt and take you away down the chocolate slide…. Mmmmmmm…..
The taste is spot on! Just like brownie batter. You have to try these!
I may or may not make a batch every Wednesday before “Nashville”. 🙂 Because these little balls of chocolatey indulgence (and they truly are indulgent) are a no-fuss treat for chocoholics like me.
But if you are planning to share them with someone, you may want to double the batch. They go fast!
