Ingredients

Caramelised White Chocolate Filling

  • 250 g white chocolate
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

Coconut Cookies

  • 115 g butter room temp
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 1/3 cups flaked coconut

Instructions

Caramelised White Chocolate Filling

  • Preheat oven to 120ºC.
  • Put white chocolate in an oven-proof dish (I used a pyrex bowl) and heat for 10 minutes.
  • Remove dish with oven mitt and stir. Return dish to oven for another 10 minutes.
  • Repeat this process for approximately 30-40 mins, or until your white chocolate is the colour of peanut butter.
  • Allow to cool and add in your salt. When the chocolate cools down to room temperature, beat in the heavy cream until smooth and spreadable and set aside.

Coconut Cookies

  • Turn up oven to 180ºC and line two baking trays with baking paper.
  • Cream the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla until light and fluffy.
  • Add in the flour, baking soda and salt mixture, then the coconut and mix until just combined.
  • Dollop dessert spoons full of dough onto the baking tray, you should fit approx 12 per tray.
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the oven, or until lightly golden. Cool on wire racks.
  • When cookies are cooled, spread caramelised white chocolate mixture onto half and sandwich the cookies together with the remainders.
  • Enjoy!
