This is one of the recipes I've been making over the past month - guiltily- for myself! I was first introduced to these delicious balls by a Swedish colleague of mine - these are really easy to make. No baking required.
The thing that makes this recipe though is the pearl sugar. You can replace it with coconut, but the pearl sugar adds another textural element to the ball.
113g unsalted butter (room temperature, some slightly melted)
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp instant coffee (coffee+water)
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa (add more for more chocolate flavour)
coconut flakes or pearl sugar
Mix butter, sugar, vanilla and coffee together first and then add the oats and cocoa
Adjust batter consistency with oats or coffee - but it should be sticky enough to roll.
Roll batter into about 25 small balls and roll them in pearl sugar or coconut flakes.
Refrigerate for about 2 hours.
