Nutella Chocolate Balls


Yet another version of the Swedish favorite - chokladbollar, or chocolate balls. This is a particularly rich and delicious variety with nutella (or other hazelnut-chocolate spread) in addition to the other ingredients.

100 g butter, softened

80 g Nutella or similar
50 g powdered sugar
50 g coconut flakes
180 g oatmeal
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp espresso 
1 tbsp golden syrup
1 tsp vanilla powder
Pinch of salt

Beat together butter, nutella and powdered sugar. Stir in the sugar, coconut flakes, oatmeal, cocoa, espresso, syrup, vanilla and salt and mix to a firm batter.

Shape into small balls, and roll in either more coconut flakes, finely chopped hazelnuts, or pearl sugar. Chill and serve cold.
