Dark Chocolate Coconut Blossoms

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

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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?!


Enjoy!
