Cocoa balls

To make ca 30 balls

125 gr butter - Org
½ dl white sugar - FT & Org
3 tsp cocoa powder - FT & Org
1 tsp vanilla sugar (see below)
3 tsp cold coffee - FT & Org
3 dl oat flakes - Org
sugar or coco flakes for coating - both FT & Org

tsp - table spoon

Most of the items are available from Fair Trade and/or Organic production.
FT - Fair Trade
Org - From organic production

Mix sugar and butter with a fork.
Add the rest and mix well, with fork or hands.
Make balls the size of meat balls with your hands.
Roll them in sugar (or coco flakes).
Put them in a fridge for a few hours.
Serve straight out of the fridge.
Not for warm days because they will get a bit messy.


Vanilla sugar
1 dl white sugar - FT & Org
1 vanilla pod - FT (& Org?)

Cut the pod and remove the seeds.
Mix with a mixer stick (or whatever it is called in English).
Store dry.
Good for making cookies or as an addition to hot chocolate!


Btw:

The original Swedish name for this delicacy is not all politically correct...
It is supposed to be covered by nib sugar / pärlsocker, but since it is not easy to find outside Sweden I suggest normal sugar or coco-flakes.

Once I tried to coat the balls with cocoa powder.
I think most thought it became very dry,
and of course not as sweet as the sugar coated!

And not all in any way related this SNL skit :-)
