Gluten Free Chocolate Truffles

Today, I am sharing a recipe for gluten free chocolate truffles that we made on the feast of Saint Nicholas.

I found the original recipe over at Gluten Free on a Shoestring Budget. I changed it a little because some things we didn't have on hand.

4 tablespoons Butter, salted
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
5 cups confectioner's sugar
1/4 cup heavy cream*
Sprinkle, Chocolate chips, and Nuts for decorating

*We didn't have heavy cream so I made a substitute for it.
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup butter
Melt the butter. Pour butter slowly into milk and stir.

Place the butter and chocolate in a small pan. Melt it over a pan of simmering water. Stir occasionally until all the chocolate and butter is melted. Remove pan from heat and add the salt and vanilla.
Place 4 cups of powdered sugar into a bowl and add the melted butter/chocolate mixture. Mix slowly. Mixture will become crumbly, but will stick together when pressed. Add the cream. The mixture will become rather moist. Add the last cup of powdered sugar, a little at a time. Kneed the mixture together until the dough is smooth. It should be soft.
Roll the dough into balls.

Place balls on a piece of parchment paper. Brush the balls with some water and roll them into your sprinkles, nuts, etc. Leave some plan too!

 We used sprinkles, nonpareils, walnuts, and mini chocolate chips.

 Place the truffles in the fridge for 1-2 hours. Take out and Enjoy!!
