Fudgy Chocolate Balls

Had a major craving for chocolate last night. Probably those aisles of Easter candy in every store. Just 3 short years ago I would have devoured one of those damn bunnies or eaten half (errr maybe more) a bag of Pepperidge Farm Sausalito cookies. I was strong and made up a batch of these. They came together in no time flat and gave me my chocolate fix in a healthier way.

It makes 30 quarter-sized balls... notice there's only 29 pictured. Mmmmm. I couldn't resist.

Please send prayers to the people of L'Aquila, Italy. At least 50 are dead after a devastating earthquake. A sad and scary reminder to have a family emergency plan and supplies ready.
