Swedish Chocolate Balls “Chokladbollar”

Earlier in the week I promised that I would share the chocolate balls that I made from Ewa's blog, Delishhh. These had an instant appeal when I saw them: no baking, no hot oven, everything in the pantry...something sweet to eat! Advance to go!

Ewa suggested rolling the chocolate balls in coconut or pearl sugar. I had not heard of pearl sugar but she provided a link so I ordered some. I learned that pearl sugar is a granulated sugar that is processed into small grains and polished. The sugar won't melt when baked and retains its appearance, I will be having fun playing with it!


Swedish Chocolate Balls “Chokladbollar”

1/4 lb or 1 stick unsalted butter (room temperature)
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract or 1 tbsp vanilla sugar
1 tbsp strong coffee (cold)
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa

Roll in coconut flakes or pearl sugar.

Mix butter, sugar and coffee together first and then add all the other ingredients. Make sure the butter is mixed in well.

The batter should be easy to roll and not too sticky, you can adjust consistency with oats or coffee.

Roll batter into about 25 small balls and roll them in pearl sugar or coconut flakes.

Refrigerate for about 2 hours.

This would be a fun activity for children. They would really enjoy rolling these tasty morsels and, of course, eating one or two before they finish!

  3. I bet the pearl sugar would be so pretty, but I have to admit I'm a huge fan of coconut. What an easy, fun recipe!

  4. I bet these would be great made wiht soaked oatmeal - could be re-named breakfast bombs with a bit of hemp protein.
