In swedish they are called “chokladbollar”. Translated info english – chocolate balls. The recipe is super easy and I believe that all Swedish people know of them. It is like meatballs, but with chocolate.

Put some sprinkles on the chocolate balls
This is a Swedish thing. The chocolate ball recipe is on every package of rolled oats in Sweden and is very easy to do. The thing is that you can make them as cute as you want! In the recipe you are supposed to roll the finished balls in coconut flakes or in granulated sugar. Boring if you ask me! Well I use different kinds of sprinkles. This is a tradition that started when my sisters kids were having birthday parties. And now they are 10 and 11 and the highlight of each party are still my chocolate balls.
It is wrong to write “my” chocolate balls. This is a true team effort. Mini makes the dough and I do the sprinkling :). It is a super easy recipe. Most swedes know this by heart. But for our international readers – here is the recipe for the Swedish Chocolate balls. You are welcome ;).
