These classic Chocolate Balls is a Swedish no-bake sweet, served at birthdays, special occasions and as an everyday treat. This ball is rolled in something Swedes call Pearl Sugar, a rough cut type of sugar that won’t melt, even if baked in the oven. It is used as decoration on cakes, cookies and on our all time favorite, the Swedish Cinnamon Scroll!
Making Vegan Chocolate Balls is as easy as it gets — just measure, mix and roll, making it a fun activity for the whole family. Parents can measure the ingredients and let kids have fun using their hands to mix it all together. This usually results in a big mess, but you won’t care when you see how much fun they’re having, and the end result is something beautiful and delicious.
