Super easy brownie truffles...

These had such rave reviews and everyone keeps asking for the recipe and thus I have decided to post it here instead of email it out to everyone.

You will need:

One box of brownie mix- the kind with the extra fudge/syrup packet
2 Tbsp of light corn syrup
1/4 c of water

Mix brownie mix, fudge/syrup packet, corn syrup, and water together to form a dough. Roll in to bite size balls and then in to any coating that you please such as nuts, sprinkles, sugar, etc. Store in the refrigerator (or in the freezer if it is longer than a week).

That is it! That is all that is to it and everyone thinks they are so gourmet and fancy...the best part is that they are so yummy!

Catch up!

In my defense, I have tried to blog in the last few weeks.  However, every time I do and I try to upload pictures it shuts off on me.  So hopefully someday I will be able to upload more of the wedding pictures! (right now I am doing them one at a time...pain!)

I have been busy- I work/train at the studio from 1-5 Monday through Thursday and stay 1-10 on Wednesdays because it is party night and I work as the is fun work, but my body is feeling it!  I am really learning a whole bunch about dance, which is great!

Nick and I were disappointed to learn that we can't move in to our apartment yet...we are waiting until we can make way more than our rent- thanks a lot bad economy!  I have just about gone crazy not being able to get out and use all of our wedding presents, but thankfully we have had a nice home to 
stay at with my parents.

Nick is still looking for a good job and he has had a bunch of interviews and some great leads.  Hopefully something great will come of those.  

I have started the process of changing my name- I have a new Social Security card and it took me two days to get through the lines at the DMV to get a new license.  We have set up a joint bank acc
ount in my new name and I have begun the process of changing my email address.  

I really do need to get ready so I can go to work today- every Monday the first item of business is to redecorate a
ccording to the theme of the week and I quite enjoy it.  (This isn't normal...we are in the middle of a six week "Tournament of Champions" where every week is a different theme.  Arthur Murray has a lot of things specific to them- more to learn!)
