Check out Zander's recipe for his family tradition: Swedish Chocolate Balls

Winter holidays have always been about spending time with family for me, and I always associate this with my mom’s Swedish Chocolate Balls. The recipe has been in my family for a long time, and they taste incredible. There’s a certain delicacy to this dessert. The coconut crumbs lightly sprinkled on top and the fulfilling chocolate center make this dessert a cut above the rest. I recommend enjoying this treat with a glass of milk because of its chocolatey nature. The recipe is simple, but the rewards are high. Swedish Chocolate Balls are a treat you don’t want to miss.

Swedish Chocolate Balls
Cook Time: 20 mins
Serves 24
3 1/4 cups oats
1 1/4 cups sugar
6 tablespoons cocoa
1 tablespoon vanilla sugar (or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, added with the coffee)
2/3 cup butter
6 tablespoons cold coffee
Flaked coconut or pearl sugar

1. Mix oats, sugar, vanilla sugar and cocoa in a large bowl.
2. Using your hands or a potato masher, incorporate the butter into the dry ingredients until the dough has an even consistency.
3. Add the coffee and mix until incorporated.
4. Fill a small bowl with flaked coconut or pearl sugar.
