Wowee that was a mouth full! This chewy brown sugar cookies are rolled in coconut then toasted to perfection before filling the middle with chocolate hazelnut spread. These cookies stayed perfectly soft and chewy for several days after baking! I honestly liked them even better the day after baking. They were delicious warm from the oven, but the brown sugar was so much more prominent the following day.
If you aren’t a fan of coconut you can easily skip it, but I looooooved toasted coconut! Rodelle launched another cookie campaign this year and I am so excited to be a part of it! A lot of the brand ambassadors came together to bring you Cookies By The Dozen ! Check out the link to see all the other cookie recipes!
These are easy to package for gift giving! While the center never truly sets you can layer with parchment paper to avoid a mess. I think they look amazing in cookie tins. I used a healthy amount of Rodelle Vanilla Extract and a sprinkle of the Rodelle Organic Cocoa. These cookies remind me of a super soft chocolate chip cookie, minus the chocolate chips!
