Recipe by Manuela
"I learnt how to make this recipe in Sweden. It tastes great even if it's totally high fat! I don't really know how many of these balls the recipe yields because everybody was eating the dough before the balls were made!!! Perfect for a skiing break with hot coffee or tea."

1 1/2 cups
unsweetened cocoa powder
I'm Swedish and these are almost perfect renditions of my favorite cafe treat: chokladbollar. Pearl sugar is hard to find in the US, though, so you can roll them in sweetened coconut flakes or coarse grind turbinado sugar, too.
I made these for a party. Each person who tried one, put it aside without finishing it. Most went to waste.
Excellent! Very quick and easy! Was extremely popular with the group I made it for; the men especially loved it! Texture is a bit unusual, but is not a deterrent considering the wonderful taste and ease of preparation. You might want to double the recipe - it only makes about 24 balls IF you don't eat much dough during preparation! (The dough is delicious!) The way these taste, 24 balls just isn't enough!
I made these for a Swedish themed Christmas Party...they disappeared very quickly! Everyone asked for the recipe. These are SO good, and so easy to make (it's almost embarrasing!).
I used Sugar in the Raw (Turbinado Sugar)as I could not find pearl sugar, but was later able to find it at a Swedish gift shop. I'm making them again today with the pearl sugar!
Thanks for sharing this fabulous recipe with us!!
I grew up in sweden and I would always help my mom make these cookies. We also rolled them in coconut flakes.
These are great. I rolled them in green sugar for my St. Patty's Day party- a big hit.
I´m Swedish and I can tell you that ALL Swedish kids love this treat! Grownup "kids" too, for that matter.
Made these for my son’s cultural exchange class. He said the kids chased him around the classroom to get the last ones. Used Washed Raw Cane (Turbinado Style) Sugar instead of the pearl sugar and used Starbuck’s Frappuccino (coffee Flavored) instead of regular cold coffee.
