Swedish Chocolate Bon Bons

    1 hour 20 min

    I learnt how to make these chocolate balls in Sweden. They are so easy to make. If you can't find pearl sugar, use granulated sugar.

    I'm Swedish and these are almost perfect renditions of my favorite cafe treat: chokladbollar. Pearl sugar is hard to find in the US, though, so you can roll them in sweetened coconut flakes or coarse grind turbinado sugar, too.  -  29 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent! Very quick and easy! Was extremely popular with the group I made it for; the men especially loved it! Texture is a bit unusual, but is not a deterrent considering the wonderful taste and ease of preparation. You might want to double the recipe - it only makes about 24 balls IF you don't eat much dough during preparation! (The dough is delicious!) The way these taste, 24 balls just isn't enough!  -  27 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made these for a Swedish themed Christmas Party...they disappeared very quickly! Everyone asked for the recipe. These are SO good, and so easy to make (it's almost embarrasing!). I used Sugar in the Raw (Turbinado Sugar)as I could not find pearl sugar, but was later able to find it at a Swedish gift shop. I'm making them again today with the pearl sugar! Thanks for sharing this fabulous recipe with us!!  -  08 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
