Chokladbollar- The Swedish Chocolate Balls

Chokladbollar- The Swedish Chocolate Balls

This week in the blogging marathon, I’m going to make some Swedish delicacies. I deliberately took this theme for the week as I wanted to explore Swedish cuisine. While going through the cuisine, I realised Swedes love for sweets. In fact, they have specific calendar days that are delegated to particular sugary specialities eg cinnamon bun day on 4th October, waffles on 25 March, sponge cake on 6th Nov etc. The average Swedish family eats about 1.2 kilos of sweets per week. Interestingly they  have fixed day for that also i.e. Saturday, sweet day.

Chokladbollar or chocolate balls are Sweden’s one of the most sought after sweet that can be found on every restaurant menu. But you have to satisfy yourself with one ball only. This is so easy to make with no cooking involved, that you can put together the ingredients in minutes. Then you need not to restrict yourself to one as in Sweden?.
