This is a popular Danish and Swedish unbaked dessert; it is called oatmeal balls in Danish and chocolate balls in Swedish. It is said that these dessert balls were invented during the World War II period. You can check out all the variations and history at Wiki.

This recipe is incredibly straightforward, easy, and simple, while still delivering a delicious outcome. The key is to achieve the right consistency, considering that ingredient variations can occur across different brands. To determine the correct consistency, try forming the batter into a dough ball.

If successful, you've achieved the desired consistency. If not, make adjustments by adding cocoa powder or coconut oil, 1 TBSP at a time, until the desired consistency is reached. Play around with the ingredients. Instead of desiccated coconut, you can roll the chocolate balls in sprinkles. The possibilities are pretty much endless.
