Oh the trouble that we had trying to come up with a name for these. My sisters, one of their husbands and my grandparents and I were sitting around a table yelling things like "chocolate nut balls!", "knasbollar", "giant nuts!", "balls with nuts!", "super balls!". It was really hard to stay serious!
Getting back on a serious note, these are a more decadent version of my chocolate balls that I have grown up with and that have always been a family favorite (and it's basically your coffees best friend).
The nuts help balance out the sweetness of the chocolate.
Super easy to make!
What you need:
200g butter (Room temperature)
200g chocolate (60%)
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
2 dl flour
100g Chopped hazelnuts
100g Chopped macadamia nuts
How you make them:
Step1: Start melting the chocolate over a water bath
Step2: Mix the butter, sugar, cocoa and vanilla sugar together in a bowl.
Step3: Add the melted chocolate.
Step4: In a mixer mix the oatmeal for about 20 seconds so that the pieces get a little smaller.
Step5: Add the oatmeal to the mixture and combine it we'll and then add the flour.
Step6: Roll small balls out of the mixture and then roll them in the chopped nuts.
Put them in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to let them set a little and then served them. Obviously you can leave them in the refrigerator for as long as you want before you serve them but at least 30 minutes.
