OK, seriously, you're still reading. The Frugal Hostess could not be more broke, and this is really what you're getting.
Don't say she didn't warn you.
Remember a few weeks ago when The Frugal Hostess made truffles? Here's the recipe, and here are some pictures.
This is sweetened condensed milk with chopped up maraschino cherries. Once you add the chocolate and ball these up, they get rolled in Dutch process cocoa. This is the easiest version of chocolate-covered cherries you can make, and they are delicious.
This is sweetened condensed milk with chopped up jalapeno peppers in it, and it is the base of a truffle that is a work in progress. Theoretically, you sift cocoa and a tiny bit of cayenne pepper together, then roll the truffles in that and top with a piece of candied jalapeno (cut into strips, cover with brown sugar and butter, bake for 30-45 minutes). However, that does not taste good. Or peppery. Just tasted like dusty chocolate. Any suggestions?
And this is sweetened condensed milk with ground coffee beans. Add the chocolate, roll into balls, coat with white chocolate, and top with chocolate-covered coffee beans.
See? Chocolate. Yum-o-riffic.
