Sandy's Sinful Truffles
This is one of my favorite and most decadent recipes. I have been making these truffles forever and they are always a hit. I use store-bought[ yellow cake for the crumbs, or a package mix will also work perfectly. The cake crumbs give the truffles a wonderful texture, so it is really worth the effort. I also change the amounts of chocolate I use according to how I feel on the day; a little more will make them sweeter, and we can all use a bit more sweetness in our lives.]
