2 (1 ounce) squares
unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 (10 ounce) jar
maraschino cherries, drained
I made these for a work cookie exchange and they were a hit. I used the recommended amount of butter and they were just fine. I think the amount is necessary to solidify in the refridgerator and hold the cookies together.
I did not use the optional cherrys. I also did them with both unsweetened and semi-sweet chocolate and both tasted good.
If you love mounds bars you'll love these because they taste just like them. I was asked for the recipe by several people. We all wondered if maybe adding an almond would result in an Almond Joy. I am pretty sure it would.
I recommend doing the recipe as stated and you will have complete satisfaction.
Lots of work for this "so so" cookie. I thought mine were mushy, so I added more coconut. Like other reviewers said, too much butter is called for in this recipe. Overall, just not impressed with this cookie.
Omg. These were DELICIOUS! I listened to the other reviews and reduced the amount of butter by just a tiny bit. They tasted like mounds candy bars! They were really messy when trying to form them into balls, but other than that, they were a breeze to make!
I was looking for something similar to the chocolate coconut bars I tried from this site, but a little less time consuming. This was quick and almost a one bowl job...which was a plus. I didn't have any chocolate chips on hand but when I dug around, I found a package of individually wrapped Dove dark chocolate hearts. I melted these with a little shortening and they worked fine. I didn't use as much butter called for because I didn't want a buttery taste. The only problem I had was my chocolate got a little dry and crumbly after being refrigerated, but that's my fault. It certainly didn't stop us from eating them! Thanks June.
These are really good but in my opinion the recipe calls for way too much butter! When I was making the cookies, it was literally dripping out as I rolled them into balls. I squeezed out as much as I could and they were still great. So easy too!
A little buttery, but they were tasty! A great treat!
to make shaping these little gems easier, I used a mini-muffin tin. Other than that I made exactly as the recipe calls for and they are now a holiday favorite in my diet - the Gluten Revolution.
loved it! they were so good, but sooo filling! make them small! we made them WAYY too big! but they are still great! 5 stars!
