triple chocolate cake balls

if you think you have a chocolate problem then these are for you.
ms.bakerella is the queen of the cake balls.
i am queen to being late to the party.

 because the genius and deliciousness of this recipe has masked any embarrassment i may have felt with pure unadulterated joy of this triple chocolate threat.

if you're like me, and new to the party, do not hesitate any longer.
these are like the poor man's chocolate truffle.
go spend $5 at the grocery store and get to work
behold the three distinct layers of chocolate.

one and two:

 and three:

highlighted with intense, dark, full-bodied coffee to accentuate the chocolate to a higher level.

and of course garnished with red delights of your choosing.

the perfect valentine day treat for the one you love
