Hi sweet readers, today I am sharing with you all a recipe for a typical and classic Swedish chocolate balls.

You can find these in most bakeries across Sweden, Most of the time they sell them in a giant size. i prefer bite- sized.

Additional cocoa powder or vanilla bean paste can be added to intensify the flavor.

These chocolate balls I make each year for the holiday they are always a hit at my party and they are so delicious.

Swedish Chocolate Balls

  • 255 g rolled oats
  • 200 g salted or unsalted butter semi-cold, diced
  • 80 g sugar
  • 60 gram unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 180 g light corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon instant espresso coffee powder
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste


  1. In a large bowl mix the butter, sugar and light corn syrup until fluffy.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until thoroughly blended.
  3. Take small amounts of the dough ( i prefer using a mini ice-cream scoop for this ) and roll between your hands to make small balls, about 1-1/2 inches in diameter.
  4. Roll the balls in the coconut , sugar pearls or chocolate sprinkles
  5. The  Balls are ready to eat, but I prefer to refrigerated these for 2 hours to become more firmer.

Have a great day you all, love Manuela xoxo
