Dessert: IKEA Chocolate Balls

When we had a visiting Japanese exchange student, I wanted to make a dessert that was easy and we had everything on hand for. This fit the bill. They were so good, they only last a few hours. I got the original recipe while shopping at IKEA.

7 tbsp butter
7 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1 1/3 cups rolled oats
3 tbsp cold strong coffee
crushed sanding sugar or shredded coconut


  1. Mix butter, sugar, cocoa powder, oats and coffee. Form into small balls, about 3/4-1” in diameter. Roll them in either sanding sugar or shredded coconut (mostly kids prefer sugar, while many adults prefer coconut).
  2. Put them in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving.

Other Notes: 

  • Makes 15-20 chocolate balls
  • Substitute milk-free margarine for butter; replace oats with gluten-free muesli.
