Carrot Cake Truffles


Carrot Cake Truffles

If you like carrot cake, you’re going to love these carrot cake truffles.

At first I thought this was just about the strangest candy you could make.  It wasn’t until I tried one that I realized just how good they are.  I was hooked.  They taste just like carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, but with some added chocolate.  They’re delicious. 

This will make a perfect Easter party treat.  And a unique one at that.  Everybody (at least, everybody who likes carrot cake) will love these.
