In our family, we all love coconut and chocolate coconut candy and desserts. And so when we came across a recipe for macaroon with a chocolate center, we knew we had to give it a try. That was a few years ago and Inside Out Mounds have been a part of our cookie tray every since. In fact, I think that it’s the cookie recipe we get asked for the most!
I can’t remember where we saw the original recipe, but it used a full sized Almond Hershey Kiss (and was called an Inside Out Almond Joy) and was a much bigger cookie than we make. Since we like all our cookies to be on the smaller side, we tweaked it a bit and swapped the full sized Hershey Kiss for Mini Kisses (in the baking aisle). The end result is a bite sized cookie that looks as good as it tastes!
What is your favorite version of macaroons? Will Inside Out Mounds make it on your cookie tray? They are definitely on ours. Find out what else is making it onto our Christmas cookie tray by checking out all the #12CookiesofChristmas posts!
