Delicious Balkan Treat: Oblatne w/ Toddler

Oblatne, aka wafers with creamy chocolate filling, have been one of my favorite deserts when I was a little girl. I remember the delicious taste of the chocolate filled wafers delightfully enticing my taste buds during each bite. Once I realized how easy oblatne are to make and how much my toddler loves to participate in kitchen matters, I decided to make him my sous-chef de cuisine. 


  • 4 eggs
  • Butter – 200 grams or 7/8 cup (room temperature)
  • Sugar – 300 grams or  1 cup
  • Chocolate – 100g or 3.5 ounces
  • Wafers – 1 pack (buy here)

The melting of the chocolate with the eggs and sugar should ideally be done in a glass bowl over a pot with boiling water for about 15-20 minutes to ensure that everything is thoroughly melted and cooked. Make sure that you stir continuously. Add the chocolate mixture to a separate chilled bowl – let it cool down a bit so that it does not fully melt the butter but rather creates a creamy consistency and add the softened butter while thoroughly mixing everything together.

The next steps should include a toddler  – spread the chocolate on each wafer. Place the oblatne for a few hours in a fridge and serve cold or at room temperature. I prefer cold but they are equally delicious when left at room temperature. The consistency is bit thicker when it is cold and seems slightly less messy.
