Coconut Candy Bar Cookies are another of my mother’s creations! She thought that Coconut Macaroons were kind of blah… So she decided to spice them up, and what better to make something more delicious than chocolate!

These Macaroons have finely chopped Mounds bars in them and then they’re dipped and drizzled in melted chocolate chips. These are so delicious that you won’t believe how good they are!

A Coconut Macaroon with finely chopped coconut candy bars drizzled and dipped in chocolate!  So good!



1 Cup Flour

1 teaspoon Baking Powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

2/3 Cup Sugar

1 3 ounce package Cream Cheese – softened

1/4 Cup – 4 Tablespoons Butter – softened

1 Egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

3/4 teaspoon almond extract

1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel

3 3/4 Cups Coconut – about a 12 ounce bag

7  1/2 ounces Mounds Bars finely chopped – 5 packages of the 2 bars @ 1.75 ounces or 10 pieces

6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 275

Combine Flour, Baking Powder and salt in medium bowl.

Beat Butter, Cream Cheese and sugar in a large bowl until fluffy

Beat in the egg, vanilla, almond extract, and orange zest.

Combine the butter mixture with the flour mixture.

Add 2 1/2 Cups Coconut and the finely chopped Mounds Bars.

Roll dough into 1 1/2 inch balls, roll in remaining coconut.

Place 2 inches apart on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and flatten the balls slightly

Bake at 275 for 35 minutes.

Let the cookies cool for 10-15 minutes

Melt chocolate chips – I use the microwave

Put about 3/4 of the melted chocolate in a shallow bowl and dip the cookies into the chocolate about 1/3 of the way up.

Using a fork drizzle the remaining chocolate on top of the cookies.
