Choklad bollar, a Swedish tradition

I had never heard of Choklad bollar or Fika before I went to Sweden. Fika is a common name in Sweden and is a symbol of the Swedish coffee culture.

Everyone does a fika, young and old and no matter what day or time. Fika means a break and is a social happening: a 'coffee break'. So coffee or soft drink with something sugary.

Now that we are in Sweden with the family for 2 months, ofcourse I want to share a Swedish Fika recipe with you. This recipe for choklad bollar is soo delicious! Really a pampering moment. Enjoy it while enjoying a cup of coffee or tea and great friends, colleagues or family around you!


Serves 8

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup of white sugar

  • 3 tbs cacao powder

  • 1 pinch of salt

  • 100 grams of unsalted butter

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 3 tbs coffee (use water instead of coffee if you make these bollar for children

  • ½ cup of grated coconut

  • 1 ½ cup of oats
