What frustrates me is that they aren't homemade, they are obviously factory produced, so what does that factory do for the rest of the year when it isn't cookie selling season? Why can't they sell them all year around?
I've found some pretty ropey recipe suggestions online for creating these wonders, but after much experimentation I think I have finally discovered a reasonable substitute for those little bites of deliciousness.
So here it is:
For the cookie:
3/4 of softened butter
2 cups of sugar
1 large egg
2 tbsp vanilla
2 cups flour
Splash of milk
Mix it all together (sans milk and flour) then add flour bit by bit until you get a nice dough. If it gets to dry add a little milk.
Pop it in the fridge for 10 minutes, then roll it out and cut circles. You could use a smaller cutter to take out the centres, I just stabbed a wooden spoon handle through them.
Next bake until golden and leave to cool.
2 cups shredded coconut
2 bags werthers original caramel melts
2 bars dark chocolate
1 bar milk chocolate
Toast the coconut until golden and beautiful.
Melt the werthers and stir in the coconut.
Press the mixture onto your cookies, being sure to cover them completely.
Melt the chocolates together and stir really well.
Dip cookies in the chocolate and leave on a sheet to cool. Melt chocolate again and dip a second time to get a good chocolate base.
Finally drizzle chocolate over with a spoon.
Okay, so its not a masterpiece, but let's face it, only the taste is important and these are De-Licious!!
