This is such a yummy treat, something I made as a child in Sweden
and now I make it with my own 'swaustralian' kiddies.
To make approx 30 chocolate balls you need:
100 g of softened butter (7 tablespoons)
100 ml of sugar (½cup)
1 tablespoon of vanilla sugar or 1½ tablespoon of vanilla extract
2-3 tablespoons of sifted cocoa
300 ml of rolled oats (1,25 cups)
2-3 tablespoons of cold strong coffee
Garnish: Pearl sugar or shredded coconut
Beat the butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy.
Stir in the rest of the ingredients.
Form into small round balls.
Garnish with pearl sugar or shredded coconut.
Refrigerate until it's time to eat.
It's a real treat at a kids party,
or in front of TV when the kids are asleep lol.
