Thread: Help me find Chocolate Cookie, macaroon center?

    Default Help me find Chocolate Cookie, macaroon center?

    I am looking for a recipe for a cookie I had a few years ago. It tasted like a Mounds candy bar. It was the same kind of coconut center, surrounded by a chocolate cookie.

    The cookie looked like a chocolate drop cookie that is baked. When you break it in half, the center is white coconut confection that is a cross between the center of a Mounds candy bar and a macaroon. The chocolate cookie part was like a rising cookie, not like the chocolate oatmeal drop cookie that we used to make on top of the stove and drop onto waxed paper.

    Does anybody have any ideas how to make this? They were really yummy!

    This isn't a cookie but thought I'd post....from Hershey's, I just received as an email so I haven't tried it yet but sounded good because I just love almond joy.

    Chocolate Almond Macaroon Bars
    Ingredients:
    2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs
    6 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
    6 tablespoons powdered sugar
    1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
    3-3/4 cups MOUNDS Sweetened Coconut Flakes
    1 cup almond slices, toasted* (optional)
    1 cup HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Chocolate Chips or HERSHEY'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
    1/4 cup whipping cream
    1/2 cup HERSHEY'S Premier White Chips
    Directions:
    1. Heat oven to 350 F. Grease 13x9x2-inch baking pan.

    2. Combine crumbs, melted butter and sugar in large bowl. Firmly press crumb mixture on bottom of prepared pan. Stir together sweetened condensed milk, coconut and almonds in large bowl, mixing well. Carefully drop mixture by spoonfuls over crust; spread evenly.

    3. Bake 20 to 25 mnutes or until coconut edges just begin to brown. Cool.

    4. Place chocolate chips and whipping cream in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave at MEDIUM an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred. Cool until slightly thickened; spread over cooled bars. Sprinkle top with white chips. Cover; refrigerate several hours or until thoroughly chilled. Cut into bars. Refrigerate leftovers. About 36 bars.

    *To toast almonds: Heat oven to 350 F. Spread almonds evenly on shallow baking sheet. Bake 5 to 8 minutes or until lightly browned.

    We purchased them frozen and baked them off where I worked. We ordered them through Gordon Foods. The brand is Karp. Sold by the case. They are to die for. Karp also makes several other excellent cookies.

    I make a coconut filled chocolate crinkle., that my dh likes. It's not exactly like what you are explaining, but it's good. This is the only coconut that I found that does not ooze out of the cookie.

    Here it is:

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here's another one that I do. It's good if you like chocolate and coconut together. Sort of a "mounds cookie"

    Chocolate Crinkle's with Coconut Filling
    (72 servings)

    1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    2 cups white sugar
    1/2 cup vegetable oil
    4 eggs
    2 tsp. vanilla
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. salt
    confectioner's sugar

    In a medium bowl, mix together cocoa, white sugar, and vegetable oil. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt: stir into cooca mixture. Cover dough and chill at least 4 hours.
    ****************************************

    While the dough is chilling, make filling...or make the day before and refrigerate. I find it better to freeze them.

    3/4 c. light Karo syrup
    2 1/2 c. macaroon coconut

    Heat Karo until very hot. Mix well with coconut. Let stand until cool. Wet hands with cold water and form balls. Refrigerate balls to let harden up some.

    *I make the balls about 1/2-in. to 3/4-in. If you make them too big, it is hard to close the dough around them. Make sure that they are firm before you start.
    *******************************************

    *this is a exra step that I use to make dough easier to work with....it has to be kept cold to stay firm. Roll the dough into 1-in. balls (or slightly larger to accomodate filling) and put back in the frig. to harden up. Take one ball out at a time, mash flat in your hand, put the coconut ball inside, pinch the dough around the coconut and seal all holes (very important). Roll in your hands to make round again. Roll in confectioners sugar and place on parchment-lined cookie sheet. Mash down slightly with a glass....sprinkle with a little more powdered sugar if the comes off when pressing down. These do not spread much, so you can get 12 easily on a half sheet-size baking sheet. Bake them in the top part of the oven at 350°.

    Here's the directions if you just want to make chocolate crinkles with just the dough.

    Preheat oven to 350°. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Coat each ball in confectioner's sugar before placing onto prepared cookie sheets

    Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Let stand on the cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to wire racks to cook.

    These make really pretty cookies that stand out on a cookie tray.

    Also, I found a bar cookie on the Taste of Home website that says it tastes like a Mounds bar.

    Chocolate Coconut Bars

    With a middle layer of coconut, these sweet chocolaty treats taste similar to a Mounds candy bar! If time is short, don't wait for the bars to cool-just lay on several thin milk chocolate bars right after you take the pan from the oven and spread them as they melt.

    SERVINGS: 36

    CATEGORY: Dessert

    METHOD: Baked

    TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min.
    Ingredients:

    * 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
    * 1/2 cup butter, melted
    * 1/4 cup sugar
    * 2 cups flaked coconut
    * 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
    * 1/2 cup chopped pecans
    * 1 plain chocolate candy bar (7 ounces)
    * 2 tablespoons Jif® Creamy Peanut Butter

    Directions:
    Combine the crumbs, butter and sugar. Press into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine coconut, milk and pecans; spread over the crust. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes; cool completely. In a small saucepan, melt candy bar and peanut butter over low heat; spread over bars. Cool until set. Yield: about 3 dozen.
