    Here is the circuit I use for controlling small DC motors. It will work for LEDs but will need a series current limit resistor fitted.

    Switching current regulators are the most efficient and best thing to use for dimming. Buckpucks are good and not too expensive- some will even take AC power right out of the box and support using a Pot for dimming. Can't get much easier than that.
