The widely popular “Chokladboll” is an essential part of most Swede’s fika routine. With the chocolate ball being a bit hard to find overall in the US, making your own seems to be the way to go to ensure that you actually get your hands on one when the cravings set in. And why not go healthy while you’re at it? We’re giving these healthy chocolate balls a try, so we can feel less guilty about the beers and burgers we just can’t say no to. (Don’t even try to deny it)
