Kokosbollar...12 weeks of Christmas

Kokosbollar {Cocoa Balls} are a popular Swedish candy you often find around Christmas time on goodie trays. They are VERY sweet, somewhat like fudge but not the same consistency.

When I was little, I used to like to go visit the neighbors. One of my favorites was an elderly lady I always called Mrs. T because I couldn't pronounce her name. She kept these in her refrigerator and would always give me one whenever I stopped by. She didn't roll hers in coconut though, but kept them plain.

I found the recipe the other day and decided to make some....they are just like I remembered.

 Sweet and chocolaty!


1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. sugar
1 Tbsp. vanilla sugar
2-4 Tbsp. cocoa
1 1/4 c. uncooked quick oatmeal
shredded coconut

Mix all the ingredients together except the coconut. Form into 1 in. balls and roll in coconut. Store in the refrigerator.

Be sure to check out the other 12 weeks of Christmas recipes....and thanks to Meal Planning Magic for hosting this blog hop!

Would love to try these. Chocolate is my favorite. Although, any cookie is my favorite, period. Thanks for posting!

How funny - I saw that title and was sure it was German. (It happens when I see an unfamiliar long word with double consonants. lol) Swedish? Good grief, why haven't I heard of them before? (being of Swedish and Danish extraction). They look delicious, Laurie! I'll have to add these to my own Christmas baking.

These would be perfect on a holiday tray! They look delightful! I'm afraid they wouldn't last long in my fridge!

My mom lives in a Swedish are in Western New York and I'm pretty sure I've seen these at one or two of her church potlucks. They look gorgeous and I love that they contain oatmeal - I can never get enough oatmeal!
