My contribution for this month is Swedish Chocolate Balls. Quick, easy and no bake needed! This is one of the first treats I learned to make on my own as a kid and it's still a favourite. These are sold at most cafées in Sweden, and not only kids love them:-) You can roll your chocolate balls in desiccated coconut, colourful sprinkles, pearl sugar or whatever topping you like.





Swedish Chocolate Balls, 25 pcs
100 g butter
1 dl sugar (100 ml)
3 dl porridge oats (300 ml)
2 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla sugar
2 tbs cold strong coffee


Topping: desiccated coconut, pearl sugar, sprinkles etc.


Place ingredients in a bowl and mix together into a dough, using your hands. Roll pieces of the dough to form small chocolate balls. Then roll your chocolate balls in desiccated coconut, pearl sugar or colourful sprinkles. You can eat the Chocolate Balls directly, or place in the refrigerator for about 1 hour if you prefer them more firm and cold.


ENJOY!

  3. Love the theme. My childhood favourites were always cookies. Or biscuits rather LOL. They were always to hand in the special cupboard in the kitchen. Ahh memories!

    The choccy balls look great. I love that you've sprinkled them. So cheerful!
