Ingredients
White Chocolate Coconut Pecan Center:
3 1/2
oz White Baker’s chocolate
3
tbsp heavy whipping cream
1/2
tsp vanilla
1/4
cup sweetened shredded coconut
3
tbsp chopped pecans
Chocolate Cookie:
1/2
cup butter, at room temperature
1 1/2
cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2
cups flour
1/4
cup cocoa powder
1 1/2
tsp baking powder
1/4
tsp salt
1 1/4
cups brown sugar (lightly packed)
3
eggs
1 1/2
tsp vanilla
Directions
1.
White Chocolate Coconut Pecan Center: Using the double boiler method, melt the white chocolate. To do this I create a double boiler by putting a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water (making sure that the bowl and pan fit together snug). This ensures that the mixture doesn’t burn. Then add the white chocolate to the heatproof bowl and melt it there. Then stir in the whipping cream and vanilla, making a smooth mixture. Stir in the coconut and chopped pecans. Set it aside to cool slightly.
2.
German Chocolate Cookie Base: Using the double boiler method, melt the butter and chocolate into a smooth mixture. Once it’s melted and mixed together, set it aside to cool slightly. In a separate bowl sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Using a mixer, mix together the eggs, brown sugar and vanilla. Beat for about 3 minutes. Add the chocolate mix to the sugar mix and combine. Slowly add the flour to the batter and mix well. Refrigerate the batter for at least 1 hour. You can even leave it in the fridge overnight. When you are ready to bake the cookies, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
3.
Putting It All Together: Make 1 inch cookie dough balls, and slightly flatten them, then press an indent in the center of the dough. Space the cookies at least 1 1/2 inches apart on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Once the cookies are done baking, remove them from the oven and press in the indent once again using your thumb or a small spoon. You will notice that the centers' rise slightly during baking, but you need the indent for the filling. Let the cookies cool for about 5 minutes. Then fill each enter with 1 tsp of the white chocolate mix. Let cool completely and enjoy!
