Have you ever tasted these? If not you should - they are a taste-sensation! If you have then you will understand why I just have to share this recipe with you.
I first came across these Swedish coconut and chocolate balls when I was living in Granada, Spain as part of my university course. I made friends with other foreign students and we always got together and had big pot-lucks. These are meals where everyone has to bring a dish from their country and my Swedish friend Julia brought these.
I often make these as a small gift when people invite us to their house. We were invited to two dinner parties this weekend. I never like arriving without a little token, as I know how difficult it is to cook for a big group of people. I did not have much time - so these are the perfect gift.
No baking required, no fuss and fail proof!
