This is a Swedish delicacy and a very loved treat in our house! Chocolate Balls! So easy to make, why we don’t make them all the time is because I basically eat 80% and share 20%. The girls and I made them for our Cancer Research bake sale that took place in the shop a couple of weeks ago and wow they were a huge success.
Now as always when I bake treats from home I use dl. 1 deciliter is 0.1 L or roughly 100 ml. This is a straight forward recipe, one bowl which is just how I like it when I bake!
Swedish Chocolate Balls
- 100 g room temperature butter (use nice baking butter)
- 1 dl sugar
- 3 dl rolled oats
- 2 tbsp cacao powder ( please use nice quality, no sweet drinking cacao)
- 1 tsp vanilla sugar (can be found in Flying Tiger or use vanilla extract but just a dash)
- 2 tbsp cold coffee (obviously stronger the better ;) )
Mix it all in one ball, should be sticky and doughy not wet like a batter. Leave it in the fridge so it sets. I normally do a couple of hours. The roll in to small balls which you then roll in either Swedish Pärlsocker (Pearl sugar) which I always get while home, but you can get it from Totally Swedish . Or alternative roll the balls in desiccated coconut which is very very tasty indeed. Then I store mine at home in the fridge or the freezer.
These are beautiful with a cup of strong coffee. Enjoy
