I hinted at this recipe, oh, well over a week ago…and then never posted it.
Shame on me.
Well, all I can say is that these are worth the wait!
Remember the brownie filled chocolate chip cookies I showed you? This recipe also has a yummy treat hidden inside each cookie!
Using a brownie mix for the cookies, the filling is a mixture of sweetened condensed milk and coconut. So easy, and so good!
Coconut Filled Brownie Cookies
Makes 20 cookies
Prep time: 10 minutes Bake time: 12 minutes
1 19.5 oz. box brownie mix (I used Pillsbury)
1/4 cup oil
5 oz. sweetened condensed milk (1/2 of a 14 oz. can)
2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the brownie mix with the eggs and oil. Mix well (this will be thick). Set aside.
In a small bowl, combine the sweetened condensed milk and coconut. Mix well. Set aside.
Using a large ice cream scoop, scoop out some of the brownie mixture into the palm of your hand. Flatten. Then using a small ice cream scoop, scoop some of the coconut mixture and place it onto the center of the flattened dough. Carefully fold up the dough, molding it completely around the coconut filling. Place onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, leaving 2 inches in between each cookie.
Bake for 12 minutes or until the cookies are set. Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, remove the cookies onto a cooling rack and let cool completely. Enjoy!
Made with love, not calories!
