We are the host family to a lovely girl from Sweden who is attending the local university. She has such an outgoing and delightful personality and loves to share about her country and her culture. And of course, I love to learn about Swedish foods.
Just take a look at these Swedish Chocolate Balls.
They are so easy to make and delicious!
I really think it’s impossible to eat just one.
Or even two.
They are addictive, y’all.
I’m telling you, you’ll be amazed at how quickly they disappear. They are a new found favorite at my house. I think they’ll show up again over the holidays.
How cute they’ll be in mini cupcake papers ready for a holiday party.
