Did you know that there's an entire day celebrating Chokladbollar in Sweden?
Yes, there is a day just celebrating the chokladbollar on May 11th every year. Swedes have a penchant for celebrating certain food days and there is one just for eating inordinate amounts of chokladbollar. I am quite excited for this year's chokladbollens dag because I am cohosting an event at Ebbas Fik in Helsingborg, Sweden along with Swedish blogger behind Skitgott.
A chokladbollar competition.
Bring along two batches of your best classic chokladbollar (either with coconut or pearl sugar toppings) AND a variation of your best and exotic chokladbollar. The winner of the competition will get some lovely prizes from us! Yes, there will be a batch of different sorts of chokladbollar from yours truly ;-)
And finally... because it is customary to eat chokladbollar on chokladbollens dag. We will also be hosting a chokladbollar eating competition.
How many balls can you eat in one sitting?
No balls wasted. We want to see how many balls you can eat in a timed competition.
(Of course, if you just want to come and see the competition you are more than welcome to join us to cheer our contestants along!)
