Swedish chocolate balls

Finally! Here is the best recipe for moist, chocolaty and heavenly tasty Swedish Chocolate balls. Heard about them before? It’s small sweet chocolate balls covered in coconut flakes (or sometimes pearl sugar). I like the coconut version, but some people love the crunch you get from the pearl sugar. I think they get too sweet with the sugar. Choose what suits you best!

Some recipes give a good taste, but a dry texture. I like when they are moist, but not like a mud cake. Some people just mix the ingredients with hand, but I like to blend the oats in a mixer first, so the oats gets finer. No very fine, just a good mixture of fine and coarse oat flakes. This gives you a moister feeling when you eat these delicious sweets. With this recipe you will get 20 mini size balls, or 15 normal size. Good luck! By the way, do you like the combinations if coconut and chocolate, try Swedish love yums!

Recipe for perfect Swedish chocolate balls (Swedish chokladbollar)

  • 125 g salted butter, room temperature
  • 3 dl rolled oats
  • 1.25 dl sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla sugar
  • 0.75 dl cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp black coffee
  • 1 pinch of salt (optional)
  • Coconut flakes

Blend the oats in a mixer for a few seconds. Just to make the oats finer. Blend all the ingredients with your hand or with a machine. Fill a piping bag with the batter and pipe out pieces of 20 grams on a tray lined with parchment paper. Let it cool in the fridge for 1 hour.

Roll the chocolate balls evenly with your hands, and then roll them in a plate with coconut flakes. Store them in the fridge and eat them cold directly from there or let them warm up some minutes in room temperature!

Variation ideas for this fika

Don’t change the chocolate balls, but try with different toppings. Pearl sugar, sprinkles, chopped almonds or why not licorice powder? For halloween, I like to put some sugar eyes on them.
