Before I made these, I should have found out if my family liked coconut. Turns out...they don't. :( But oh well! To each their own and more for me! And believe me, I had my fair share of these delicious little Dark Chocolate Coconut Blossoms! One evening I even warmed two up and put some vanilla ice cream on top! Yummo!
Here's how I made them:
Dark Chocolate Coconut Blossoms
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cup flaked sweetened coconut
1/8 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
18 dark chocolate Hershey's Kisses
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet.
In a large bowl, stir flour, coconut, and salt. Add condensed milk and vanilla; stir until well combined.
Drop batter in about a tablespoon size balls an inch apart onto the cookie sheet. Bake 15-17 minutes until done with golden bottoms.
As soon as they come out of the oven, add a dark chocolate Hershey's Kiss to the top and press down slightly. Let cool about 5 minutes on the cookie sheet then transfer to a wire rack. Makes 1 1/2 dozen.
If you like coconut, you will love these! I did! Next time, I'm thinking about adding an almond on top to make an Inside-Out Almond Joy! Wouldn't that be amazing?!
