  • Author:


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.
