How to Make Chocolate Charms

Step-by-Step

  • 1Sift together flour, cocoa and salt into a bowl.
  • 2Place butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add sugar and beat about 2 minutes more, until very light in color and fluffy, occasionally scrapping down the sides of the bowl with a spatula. Add vanilla, if using.
  • 3Add flour mixture, and combine on low speed, scraping with spatula if necessary,until flour is just incororated and dough sticks together when squeezed with fingers. Form dough into a flattened disk; wrap in plastic. Chill until firm, at least 1 hour.
  • 4Preheat oven to 325F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. With a spoon, form dough into 1 inch balls; place on prepared baking.
