Good things come with many names. Swedish treat but also very common in Denmark. I've posted this to a recipe request. They are very easy to make and easy to eat as well! If you can't get hold of thin wafers, use very thin sugar cookies--the one's that you can roll the dough into a log and cut very thin slices to bake. I give the mesurements in ml and grams. Use an electric whisk for the best fluffy mixture, I use my Kitchenaid. These make 40 according to the recipe, but that depends on how big a base you use and how high you make them. Enjoy!
- 1 egg white
- 450 ml white sugar
- 50 ml powdered sugar
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons gelatin, powder plus
- 150 ml boiling water
- smorgasran or thin wafers
- 300 g dark chocolate, plus
- 1 teaspoon oil or 1 teaspoon butter
- coconut, shredded or crushed nuts
Directions See How It's Made
- Whip the egg white with the two sugars just to blend.
- Stir the gelatin powder to dissolve in the boiling water.
- While beating the egg/sugar mixture pour the gelatin in a thin stream into the mixture.
- Whip to a fluffy and firm meringue for 25-30 minutes.
- Take a glass or a cookie cutter and take out round bases from the wafers.
- Spoon the mixture onto the bases or use a piping bag for better looking treats.
- Put them in the refrigerator to dry out on the surface--can take 30 minutes to a couple of hours.
- Melt the chocolate in a big enough bowl so that you can get the balls in sidewise.
- Hold them by the base and dip the balls in the chocolate one side at a time.
- Do not dip the base because it will just get wet.
- Sprinkle the chocolate with coconut or crushed nuts and let stand to get the chocolate to harden.
- Store in a airtight container or in the refrigerator and they freeze really well.
