Posted for ZWT6 - Scandinavian Region. I found this on scandinavianfoods.com and thought what a terrific recipe to make with the kids or when you don't feel like heating up the kitchen. Pearl sugar is like large granulated sugar - or very coarse sugar. A good replacement is to coarsely chop sugar cubes if you can't find this in your locale. This recipe gives two options - one using orange juice or the other using cold brewed coffee - I think both options are great choices!

This looks delicious and fun to make with my Grandson. I do have a question regarding the amount of Orange juice. It says to add up to 3 Tab. .Does this mean only use the other #3 if <br/>needed ? Thank You so much for sharing this recipe. I Love passing on Family traditions to my<br/>Grandson.
- 3 cups quick oats
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 6 tablespoons orange juice
- 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- flaked coconut (see note in description) or pearl sugar (see note in description)
Directions See How It's Made
- Mix together the quick oats, sugar, and cocoa powder. Add up to 6 tablespoons cold orange juice (or use the cold brewed coffee) to moisten. Using your hands, rub in the butter until batter holds together in a soft mass.
- Shape the batter into walnut-sized balls. Roll each one in coconut or pearl sugar.
- Place cocoa balls on baking sheet and refrigerate for at least one hour (if you like firmer cookies, place in freezer).
