Utterly delicious HAVREGRYNSKUGLER

Anya Jensen29th November 2017

When I was little, one of the first edible things I managed to make entirely on my own was what we call โ€˜Havregryns Kuglerโ€™, which is a small round oat and chocolate ball, covered in coconut shavings – let me tell you – it is utterly delicious.

These small treats are very moreish, easy to make, and the perfect sweet delicacy if you need to whip something up quickly. I often use these as hostess gifts as well – perfect for the festive season coming up.

INGREDIENTS
  • 300 g. oats
  • 250 g butter – room temperature
  • 200 g icing sugar 1 tsp vanilla sugar
  • 5 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 Dbl espresso (or a small cup of strong black coffee)
  • Milk (to get the right consistency)
  • Grated coconut (to roll them in)
METODE

Mix your oats, chocolate, vanilla sugar and icing sugar in a large mixing bowl.

Cut the butter into cubes – 1-2 cm. Place the butter into your food processor /mega mixer and turn it on.

Add the oats-mix bit by bit – adding the coffee to make it smooth. If the mix gets too dry, add a dash of milk until the paste is smooth.( Do note that this is very sticky as it is butter based)

Get a cup and fill it with boiling water. Using a metal spoon, dip into the boiling water, and take some of the oats โ€˜pasteโ€™ and make into a round ball – the size of a large grape. You form it with the spoon in your hand.

Put the coconut on a plate, and roll the ball in the coconut, covering it completely.
Put these on a tray covered with silver foil or parchment paper.

Continue making oat-balls until you have used all of the paste.
Put the oat-balls in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours before serving.

Keep the oat-balls in the fridge, as they do tend to go soft rather fast. They will keep for 5-7 days in the fridge.

As a hostess gift put your oat-balls into a pretty jar, tie a festive ribbon on with a Christmas tag.

It is always a pleasure giving these to someone else.

ENJOY – THESE ARE HEAVENLY!!
