Swedish Chocolate Balls

Happy Sunday! Hope everyone is enjoying this fabulous weather!

This past week I tried out another new recipe. My husband’s work had a potluck where each department was in charge of bringing a food item from a different country in the world. His department got Sweden so we did some research on traditional Swedish food. I came across this recipe for Swedish chocolate balls online and decided to give it a try!

The recipe was pretty simple and most of the ingredients were already in my kitchen so it was a win-win 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups regular oats
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons coffee
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips, melted
  • 1/2 powdered sugar

First, take a large bowl and mix together the oats, sugar, and cocoa powder. Then add the butter and mix together. I found the easiest way is to use your hands for this part!

Once you have a thick dough, add the coffee, vanilla, and melted chocolate. Mix again until well blended.

Pour the powder sugar into a separate, small bowl. Using your hands or a scoop, make small balls out of the dough. Place each ball into the powder sugar to coat then place on a baking sheet. Refrigerate the balls for a couple of hours and they are ready to go! By husband said they went over very well at the potluck and had great reviews 🙂
