Delicious double chocolate cookies stuffed with a coconut macaroon filling. This recipe makes approximately 20 large cookies. For the coconut filling, you'll want to wait to prepare this until after the cookie dough has chilled for two hours.
Ingredients
  • Double Chocolate Cookies:
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Coconut Filling:
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1½ cups shredded sweetened coconut
  • ½ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
Instructions
  1. Double Chocolate Cookies:
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar together until creamy.
  3. Beat in egg and vanilla.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Slowly mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients until blended. Do not over mix.
  6. Beat in the milk.
  7. Stir in 1 cup of the chocolate chips. The remaining ¼ cup of chocolate chips will be used right before you bake the cookies.
  8. Cover dough and chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  9. Coconut Filling:
  10. Preheat oven to 350F.
  11. In a small bowl, stir together flour, coconut, condensed milk and vanilla.
  12. Scoop chilled cookie dough into balls that are about 2 tablespoons in size each.
  13. Use your hands to flatten out each cookie a bit so you can scoop about 1 teaspoon of the coconut filling in the middle of each. Roll chocolate cookie dough around the coconut filling so it's completely covered. Your cookies should now look like round donut holes.
  14. Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet (space them apart by at least two inches because they will spread out quite a bit when baking).
  15. Take the remaining ¼ cup of chocolate chips and press a few chocolate chips into the top of each cookie before baking.
  16. Bake cookies for 12-14 minutes. Let the cookies cool completely before removing them from cookie sheet.
