Chokladboll (literally "chocolate ball") is a popular Swedish confectionery - a type of fridge cake. The chokladboll is usually slightly smaller than a golfball. The chokladboll consists of oatmeal, sugar, coffee, cocoa, butter, and sometimes a pinch of vanilla sugar, which is mixed to a compact mass. Balls are formed and then rolled in nib sugar, shredded coconut, or sprinkles. Chokladboll can be eaten immediately, but it is usually first placed in the refrigerator for about an hour or in the freezer for those who prefer a harder variety. Because of its simple recipe, it can be quickly made by anyone and is popular at children's parties and as homemade candy.
