Recipe: how to make Swedish chocolate balls

Next to cinnamon buns, the most popular pastry in Sweden has to be the chocolate ball. They’re very easy to make, even a child can do it! Here’s my recipe how to make Swedish chocolate balls.

What you will need: (for 20-30 balls)

1 dl of sugar
100 grams of butter, not melted
3 dl of oatmeal
2-4 tablespoons of cocoa powder
Coconut flakes

How to do it:

Put everything except the coconut flakes into a bowl. Mix by hand until you have a nice thick batter. Make small balls out of the batter and roll in the coconut flakes.
Let the balls rest in the fridge about two hours.

Enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea, or a glass of milk.

    These look absolutely delicious! I have been binging on sugar for a whole week and am feeling a bit sick now, but I definitely want to try making these :)

    I had a go at making chocolate balls a couple of weeks ago. I couldn’t get the balls to stay intact, so me and my friends ended up just eating the batter as it was, which wasn’t too bad at all :)
    It was a different recipe though, so I might try yours out soon.

    When you say oatmeal, do you mean the oats you buy that are dry? Or like the prepared breakfast food? (Silly question, I know.) These sound wonderful! :)

    Stumble upon yr blog when i googled for this recipe. Recipe calls for oatmeal, will raw rolled oats work or should i use the instant ones? Cos’ if i use rolled oats, it will be very coarse.
