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!
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
- In a bowl, mix the sugar, vanilla extract and butter (by hand or in a food processor).
- Add the coffee or water and cocoa powder and mix well.
- Now add the oatmeal and the salt. Mix everything together.
- Make 8 balls with your hand and roll the balls through the grated coconut.
- Let it set in the fridge for about 30 minutes (if you can wait). Delicious with a nice cup of coffee or tea!
