In Sweden we are all brought up with chocolate balls. I believe it is the first cake you often are allowed to make on your own for your parents if you are about five years old. Chokladbullar.
All you need are your hands, a bowl and some ingredients. No oven needed.
Comfortable also for a grown-up with just a desperate need for a little sweet something.
I have made them slightly different then in my youth but just as good.
Let’s get to work!
2 dl hazelnut flour, grained coconut or sunflowers (separate or combined)
1 teaspoon of lavender
1 tablespoon of raw cacao
1 teaspoon of grained raw vanilla bean
1-2 teaspoon of Sukrin Gold (or equal sweetener of choice, honey, agave etc)
A small pinch of flaky sea salt, preferably Maldon
75 gram real butter
Plus some extra of grained coconut or hazelnut flour
How do I do it?
1. Add all dry ingredients to your household blender, let it really be mixed.
The lavender should be in very small pieces when ready.
2. When all grained, add the butter. Run the blender until you have an equal paste.
3. Roll into bite-sized balls and finally dip them in a bit of grained coconut or hazelnut flour.
4. Let them cool off in the refrigerator and enjoy them with a cup of strong coffee.
