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 as directed. Only one problem. Doesn't make enough for my family, so I had to make a second batch and have been told to save this recipe. I used coconut verses the sugar. Thanks for a great, delicious AND easy cookie. Made for Football Pool 2013.
Mine were a bit gritty, but the flavor was excellent! I think and overnight rest in the fridge will work wonders! Made for ZWT9
I substituted hot chocolate for the coffee. I also followed the directions of a previous reviewer and chilled the dough a little bit before forming the balls. I used a rounded tablespoon and got about 13 cookies (after some "sampling"). The coconut didn't really stick to the cookies by just rolling it, so I pressed the coconut onto the cookie balls. Then I popped them in the freezer for 5 minutes before serving. Pretty tasty, but they just seem to be missing that "something special." Thank you diner524!
These are yummy!! DD (toddler) likes them too. She helped me make them. We made ours chocolate free using carob powder. I actually used old fashioned oats which worked alright. I always use sweet butter (unsalted) at all times. Definitely desserts should use such. I used a halal vanilla paste, instant coffee granules in a little water and unsweetened dried coconut to be corn free! Like twissis, another reviewer, I thought these may not hold together well because of the little amount of "wet" ingredients and also thought they wouldn't be sweet enough. I was wrong as well. I preferred them chilled just a little in the refrigerator. I may make these again as they are quick for a sweet snack craving. Made for 1~2~3 Hits ~ Winter 2011.
