These Swedish Chocolate Balls (or hearts!), also known as ‘Chokladbollar’ in Swedish, are a fav among our office and friends and are super easy to make! Have fun with the kids and make them into any shape for any occasion! Delish!
Swedish Chocolate Hearts
- One stick unsalted butter (softened)
- 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 3/4 cups sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract or 1 tbsp vanilla sugar
- 1 1/2 tbsp espresso (cold)
- 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
- Garnish: Coconut flakes or sprinkles
Mix all the ingredients together with your hands or in food processor until well combined.
Adjust consistency with coffee or oats (it should be a bit sticky but firm).
Roll them in to 20 – 25 balls or cut them into heart shapes and garnish.
Refrigerate for one hour or more before serving.
