Swedish chocolate balls: easy recipe!

Recipe for Swedish chocolate balls.

Swedish chocolate balls are so delicious that it is surprising that the recipe behind it is so simple. Certainly since I made and tasted white chocolate balls for the first time, I regret that I did not try this recipe a long time ago. Today I am not just sharing a recipe for the ‘ordinary chocolate balls’ but also for the white chokladbollar.

With this simple basic recipe, you can make your own Swedish chocolate balls in 10 minutes. In addition, you can experiment with other versions. I give some suggestions at the bottom of this recipe. Each recipe is good for about 20 chocolate balls.

Recipe classic Swedish chocolate balls


  • 300 ml oatmeal
  • 100 ml fine crystalline sugar (tip: you can also use flour sugar)
  • half a tablespoon of vanilla sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 100 grams of butter at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • Coconut


  1. Mix the oatmeal, sugar and cocoa powder.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of water and knead with the butter. Knead until all ingredients are well mixed and form a homogeneous mass.
  3. Roll balls. You can choose the size. I usually go for balls with a 2-3 cm diameter.
  4. Roll the chokladbollar through the coconut particles.
  5. Put in the fridge for at least one hour.

That fifth step is the hardest! It is not easy to leave those chocolate balls unattended in the fridge for an hour.
