Prep time:
Cook time:

Serves: 36
Ingredients
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 Tbsp. water
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg white mixed with 1 Tbsp. water
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, with a mixer, beat together the butter and sugar on medium speed until light – about 3 minutes. Beat in the egg yolks. Gradually mix in the flour mixture – just until mixed.
  3. Remove half of the dough from the bowl and place in a second bowl. With a spoon, stir in the cocoa powder and water just until incorporated. Stir the vanilla into the other dough.
  4. Shape each dough into 2 logs – you’ll have 2 chocolate and 2 vanilla. Stack them together so that you have a chocolate and vanilla on the bottom and then put the 2nd vanilla log on top of the chocolate and the 2nd chocolate log on top of the vanilla. Squeeze together ever so easily. Now, it’ll look like a checkerboard.
  5. Wrap in plastic and put in the refrigerator to chill thoroughly. Overnight usually works best.
  6. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease cookie pans or line with parchment.
  7. With a sharp knife, cut cookies about 1/4-inch thick. Place on cookie pans about 1 1/2-inches apart.
  8. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes or until firm to a light touch and golden on the bottom. Let sit on cookie pans for about 5 minutes and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

Serves: 48
Ingredients
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 3 cups large rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened fine coconut
  • 12 tbsp cocoa
  • 1 1/2 cups extra coconut extra coconut to roll the balls approximately
Instructions
  1. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, butter and milk. This mixture will foam up while boiling so a larger pot is recommended.)
  2. Boil together gently over medium heat for 5-6 minutes or until mixture reaches about 230 degrees F on a candy thermometer. (The 5 to 6 minutes cooking time is usually quite accurate for me but don’t start timing it until the mixture is fully at a rolling boil and don’t stir the mixture while it boils.)
  3. Mix together the oats, 1 cup coconut and cocoa.
  4. Add the boiled mixture to the dry ingredients until well combined and chill well in the fridge, until mixture is able to be shaped into 1 1/2 inch balls. The mixture will be quite soft and sloppy while it is still hot. It will not firm up until it is very well chilled.
  5. Roll the balls in additional coconut.
  6. Makes about 4 dozen. These should be stored in the fridge.
