Chokladboll recipe (Chocolate ball)


A chokladboll (literally meaning chocolate ball) is a traditional Swedish pastry often eaten with coffee during fika. They are quick and easy to prepare, since they require no baking and only a few, common ingredients.

     3 1/4 cups oats
    1 1/4 cups sugar
    6 Tbsps.  cocoa
    1 Tbsps.  vanilla sugar (or 1 tsps.  vanilla extract, added with the coffee)
    2/3 cup butter or margarine
    6 Tbsps.  cold coffee
    flaked coconut or pearl sugar (optional)

    Mix oats (Instant Oats will give a better texture and flavour and is recommended), sugar, vanilla sugar, and cocoa in a large bowl.
    Using your hands or a potato masher, incorporate the butter into the dry ingredients until the dough has an even consistency. It will aid mixing if the butter has been allowed to soften slightly rather than being fridge-cold.
    Add the coffee and mix until incorporated.
    Fill a small bowl with flaked coconut or pearl sugar (optional)
    With your hands, roll the dough into 3 cm (1 inch) diameter balls.
    Roll each ball in the coconut or pearl sugar and place on a tray.
    Chill chocolate balls for at least one hour before serving.
