Posting for ZWT6 and found online at Gretchen for Swedish recipes. These sound simple, quick and chocolately. This is what the recipe states: On Chokladbollar These are a popular Swedish treat. This easy recipe is a fun activity for a children's party. If you're concerned about the caffeine in the coffee - if you've been to a kid's party recently, you know they're wired enough - just substitute chocolate milk.)

Made as written for ZWT6 because the idea intrigued me, but I was skeptical. I did not think there was enough moisture for it to work or enough sugar for it to be good, but I was wrong on both counts. It's a very easy fix that will satisfy the greediest chocoholic among us. I do suggest 2 things for the prep: 1) Chill the dough well b4 forming the cookie balls for easy handling & 2) Put a sandwich baggie or sml plastic bag over your hands to form the balls. It goes fast & you won't be a mess when you finish. I opted for the pearl sugar to decorate because there is not a lot of sugar in these cookies & DH has a greedy sweet-tooth. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. It is a winner in my book. :-)

So much fun to make. Ooeeyy, gooey, chocolate-y sticky. Loved making them. I would also suggest refrigerating dough just a wee bit before using, especially in warm weather. I got 15 on the nose. Dark, rich, chocolate flavor. Very good. Thanks for posting. Made for 1-2-3 Hits, Summer 2010.

Yummy!!! Wanted to make them for ages since I once tried them at the famous Swedish furniture store :lol: Now I made them gluten free with rolled millet instead of oats - nobody would tell the difference. Also I used non hydrogented margarine to make them casein free. They are so good that I barely can stop eating :D Thanks for posting Hokie! Made for ZWT6 Scandinavia for the Unrulies Under The Influence.
