Swedish Chocolate Balls with Black Tea

Tea on its own is (in our humble opinion) one of life’s simple pleasures. There are so many options to choose from, and so many scenarios where a good cup of tea can be a bright spot in your day. But even if you’re a tea lover, you may not know that there are a variety of ways you can use tea in a culinary setting that go far beyond brewing up a simple cup!

These Swedish chocolate balls incorporate black tea and are an excellent holiday treat, full of oat-y, chocolatey goodness. They’re super simple to make, and a great little snack to have in the fridge for when you want to treat yourself.


Swedish Chocolate Balls


  • 1 stick of unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • 1 ⅓ cup of old fashioned oatmeal (dry)
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder 
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract 
  • 2 tablespoons of black tea
  • Flaked coconut


    1. Mix the ingredients together, taste, and adjust as needed.
    2. Roll into small balls, approximately 1 inch in diameter, and then roll in the coconut flakes as a topping.
    3. Refrigerate and serve cold.
