    MamaJ's Note:

    I got this from the Cuisine at Home Holiday Cookbook. These are delicious! A moist coconut dough is wrapped around an almond hershey kiss. The cookie is chewy on the outside with a chocolate almond surprise inside. It's almost a cross between a cookie and a candy. Mmmmmm.

      I don't know if we did something wrong, but the batter was very liquidy. The first batch flattened out on the parchment paper, so while warm, we folded them into the mini muffin papers, creating a sort of 'flower' effect. We added more flour to thicken the dough up a bit and baked the second batch directly in the muffin paper with better results. The flavor is really good, but the technique still needs work (probably on our part). We may try again as Bayhill's pic looks really good and seems to have worked perfectly. Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)

      Oh my, these cookies are to die for!! They are rich, chewy, and oh so delicious. I refrigerated the dough for 5 hours and that seemed to work out perfectly. I had a feeling that the dough was going to be somewhat sticky, so I occasionally sprayed my hands with Pam while shaping the dough around the chocolate kisses. In my oven, 16 mins. was the amount of time it took to bake these up to a nice golden brown. While these cookies might be a little more work than some other cookies, they are definitely worth the extra effort. My family loved these and gave them 2-huge thumbs up. If you love coconut, chocolate, and almonds...you're gonna love these fabulous cookies. Thanks MamaJ!

      These are awesome moist chewy cookies! My daughter loves chocolate and coconut so I made these for her! She says they are outstanding! I did use plain chocolate kisses instead because she does not eat nuts. Thanks MamaJ!
