These cookies are so fun to make and I think they look very cute as well! Very chewy and even when you don’t like the texture of coconut, you will still love these cookies. It’s proven 🙂
They kinda grow on you, when you’re not hooked after the first one, you can’t stop eating them after the second one 🙂 They have this awesome aftertaste.
I thought it would be a lot of work but the cookie doughs were ready real fast 😉
Yield: 5-6 dozen cookies
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 beaten eggs
3 1/2 cups flour
Melt the cup of chocolate in a butter. Stir until smooth and let the mixture cool.
Add the flour half a cup at a time, stirring every time.
Cover your bowl and refrigerate it. I chilled it overnight but an hour is good too. It got a bit too hard so I microwaved it a little bit before starting to form the balls.
The coconut filling must chill as well.
2 cups shredded coconut
1 cup white sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 stick cold butter
2 beaten eggs
In a food processor mix together coconut, sugar and flour. Pulse several times so that the coconut flakes are no longer a quarter inch.
Cut the butter into four pieces and add them to your work bowl. Pulse again till the mixture looks like coarse meal. Add the beaten eggs. Mix.
Form balls of chocolate dough, 1 inch in diameter, with your hands. Place them in a greased cookie sheet, 12 to a standard sheet. Press them down with your impeccably clean hand.
Form balls of coconut mixture, just a bit smaller than the chocolate balls you made. Place them on top of each squashed chocolate ball. Now squish these down.
Make 12 more chocolate balls, the same size as the first ones and put them on top of the squashed coconut balls. Press them down slightly to make a little “sandwich”. I also added a M&M on top, I thought it was very cute 🙂
Bake 9 – 11 minutes. Let them cool for a few minutes and then use a spatula to move them to a wire rack to complete cooling.
If you have any coconut/chocolate mixture left, form balls, press it down and bake for them 350 F for 10 minutes as cute extras 😉
