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!
