  • To Make Dough: Beat butter until softened. Add half of flour. Then add 1 cup sugar, cocoa, egg, milk, and baking soda. Beat until combined. Work in the rest of the flour. Chill dough until firm enough to roll.

  • Place dough between 2 sheets of waxed paper. With rolling pin roll dough in a rectangle 14 x 6 inches. Remove top sheet of waxed paper.

  • Remove filling from refrigerator and shape into a roll 14 inches long. Place filling on top of dough. Start on one end and roll dough around filling (like rolling up a rug) . Moisten and pinch edges together. Cut roll in half. Wrap in waxed paper and refrigerate for two days.

  • Cut into 1/4 inch slices (using a very sharp knife or waxed dental floss). Put on greased cookie sheets and bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on sheet for about 1 minute and then finish cooling on racks.

They do take quite a while to make but so worth it! I made them a little different and don't refidgerate for 2 days either. I make a coconut filling but without nuts and refidgerate. Make the chocolate cookie part and put in the freezer for 1 hour after that roll flat between two pieces of wax paper and lay flat in the refidgerater for 2 hours or freezer for 1/2 hour more. After chilling time cut the chocolate into circles (I used a glass). Put about a tablespoon of coconut mixture in the center and fold up the cookie around it. Flatten the bottoms and put on a cookie sheet. Continue with the remaining dough and then refidgerate for another 1/2 hour or so. Then bake until set. So yummy! I never have leftovers. They take a while to make and are involved but are soooo worth it! Read More

This turned out nothing like the chocolate macaroons that I remember from childhood... these are more like soggy centered cookies rather than the old fashioned chocolate coconut clusters. Having to refrigerate the dough for 2 days was a real disappointment to my 13 year old daughter who started out making them. Definitely would not recommend them! Read More

I wish I understood the physics for having in the refrigerator for two days but I did as instructed although I question the necessity. The cookies didn't have a lot of chocolate flavor but it was still a tasty cookie that we enjoyed. Read More

These are good-the 2-day wait is a little off-putting but they are really tasty! Read More
