    I've taken the liberty of translating this recipe. This is a really good pastry that is very easy to make. The units is in metric because I don't know the other one.

    Black ball cookies:

    75 grams of butter
    1.5 decilitre sugar
    1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
    4 decilitre rolled oats
    2 tablespoons of cacao
    3 tablespoons of strong cold coffee

    Mix everything together, when it's a dough, simply make balls, then roll the balls in pearl sugar. No cooking is required and it's a great tasting pastry to eat with your coffee.


    Another similar pastry is the rice balls:

    Here is the translated recipe:

    100 gram butter
    1 decilitre sugar
    2 tablespoons of vanilla sugar
    2 decilitre of rolled oats
    2 decilitre puff rice

    Simply mix the ingredients, add half of the puff rice to the mix, then make a dough. Make balls and roll the balls in the rest of the puff rice.


    I don't know if you have all ingredients where you happen to be, but if you do I highly recommend making some black balls or rice balls, they are delicious.

    If anyone wants to change the units so Americans and Liberians can understand I welcome it.

    Edit: Ok, I see the name was changed, it's understandable since it's an offensive word. Anyhow, if you are going to search for the pastry they are called "n-word balls"

    YUMMY!! We call them "no-bake" cookies. My mom and her mom made them when we were growing up. Now I make them. I don't do the coffee part. I add about 1/4 cup of shredded coconut.

    Haven't made any for quite awhile. I just might have to do that tonight. :D

    I made them and they were wonderful. I did increase the cocoa to 1/2 cup. I was in desperate need of a chocolate fix. We are not real big on coconut here, so I rolled half of them in more cocoa and the other half in powdered sugar. I am going to make these at Christmas.

    I am think of doing an adult version using homemade coffee liqueur instead of the coffee.
