Swedish chocolate balls recipe
These Swedish chocolate balls were introduced to us by a Swedish friend. They are made from oats and cocoa and then rolled in delicious coconut. The kids will love to help with these.
Makes about 20 balls
- 100g butter
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 3 tbsp caster sugar
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp water or coffee
- 1 cup (85g) desiccated coconut + extra for rolling
Melt the butter then place in a large bowl. Add all the remaining ingredients except the coconut and mix well.
Roll this mixture into small balls, about the size of a walnut, then roll each one in the coconut.
Store in the fridge for up to a week.
- You can swap half a cup of the oats with finely chopped dried fruit if you prefer.
- A few finely chopped hazelnuts is another good addition to this beautifully simple recipe.
