Shannon Källåker, Owner of Lemon & Sage Market and Dinner Crafts by Lemon & Sage was in our kitchen today making the most delicious Swedish Chocolate Balls (Chokladbollar)! We loved them, and we know you will, too.
- 1/2 c + 2 T butter, room temp
- 1/2 c granulated sugar
- 1 T vanilla sugar (or 1 tsp vanilla extract)
- 3 T cocoa powder (the darker the better! Callebaut is great!)
- 1 1/2 cups oats (I like to mix quick and old fashioned)
Stir together butter and sugar until well combined. You can do this by hand with a large spoon. Add vanilla sugar/vanilla, cocoa powder, and oats and stir until oats are distributed evenly throughout the butter mixture. Form into balls (about 15) and put on a plate in the refrigerator to set.
**Optional: While still sticky, roll balls in pearl sugar, coconut, or sprinkles. Sprinkles aren’t traditional Swedish, but they’re fun!
