• 2 lbs powdered sugar
  • 1/2 lb (2 sticks) butter – softened to room temperature – not melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla (clear works best, but hard to find)
  • 1 or 2 Tbsp cream (milk will work as well)


  1. Mix sugar, butter and vanilla in a large bowl by hand
  2. Add 1 Tbsp cream until dough forms – if dough is not sticking together well, add the other Tbsp of cream
  3. Knead dough until glossy
  4. Form into balls and let dry or use immediately as a candy center for chocolate molds
  5. If forming balls and letting dry, dip into melted chocolate after completely dry – best when dipped in unsweetened bakers chocolate, as they are very sweet!
