Simple Swedish Chocolate Oat Balls (Chokladbollar)

Prep Time10 mins
Fridge1 hr
Course: Candy
Cuisine: Swedish
Servings: 18 balls


  • 150g butter (room temperature)
  • 180g sugar
  • teaspoons vanilla sugar (see notes)
  • 40g cocoa
  • 3 tablespoon strong brewed coffee (cold)
  • 280g oats


  • Coconut, pearl sugar or sprinkles (as much as is needed to cover the balls)


  • Cream the butter and sugar together until light.
  • Add the other ingredients one at a time until everything comes together.
  • Roll into around 18 balls of a size a little smaller than a golf ball (although it doesn't matter how big or small you make them).
  • Place whatever you are using as decoration in a bowl and roll the balls in it until they are covered. Place in a container and keep in the fridge for an hour or so. The chokladbollar will last several days in the fridge. Enjoy!


If you don't have vanilla sugar, just use vanilla extract instead.
