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

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!


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 :-)
