Swedish Chocolate Balls

Swedish Chocolate Balls_102009

I found this recipe for “Kall Dem Vad Du Vill” Bollar on Pia’s blog and did a little math and a lot of experimenting to convert this traditional Swedish dessert/snack into American measurements.  I have made these several time and love the not-super-sweet flavor and “healthy” components of oats and coconut.  (Coconut is healthy, right?  It’s like fruit, yes?)

Pia’s Swedish Chocolate Balls

2/3 cups butter, softened
1 1/4 cup sugar
6 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/4 cups oats
6 tablespoons cold coffee or Pero
1-2 cups shredded coconut for rolling

Beat butter and sugar until fluffy, add cocoa powder and vanilla.  Stir in oats and coffee/Pero and let dough chill 15 minutes.  Using a cookie scoop (or your fingers) roll into small balls, press chocolate ball in coconut and press to make stick.  Chill at least an hour prior to serving.
