A twist on a Scone, a Rock Cake, and a Coconut Macaroon – delicious.
I love coconut, and I love chocolate – The combination of them together is DELICIOUS! I was asked by someone I know to make something involving them both, but I had no clue what, so I decided to make a mashup of all things yum and got these! The name ‘Rocks’ implies they’re hard, but they’re not at all! They are based on Rock Buns which traditionally have raisins in for example, not coconut or chocolate!
I wasn’t 100% on if this name suits them – so apologies if not, I just know they are extremely yummy! The chocolate makes them so nice and gooey, but the coconut flavour cannot be topped – its delicious! You can make these bigger if you want, I used a cookie scoop that holds 2tbsp but they’re still quite small – doubling them is easy enough, and baking them for about another 5 minutes! I seriously want to make these again already, but alas I have many more requests to complete!
I recently put up my recipe for my Coconut Chocolate Blondies and they’ve been a hit – they’re similar to this, but more cookie/brownie like – both are perfect for Coconut lovers!
Seriously though, I hope you love these! Let me know how you get on!
This makes 12-14!
– 225g Self Raising Flour
– 1/2tsp Baking Powder
– 125g Cold Butter, Diced
– 125g Caster Sugar
– 125g Desiccated Coconut
– 2 Medium Eggs, Beaten
– 1tsp Vanilla Bean Extract
– 175g Milk Chocolate Chips (Plus extra to decorate!)
1) Preheat your oven to 200C and line two baking trays with parchment paper.
2) Put the Flour & Baking Powder into a Food Processor and add the Diced Cold Butter – Blitz it till it forms breadcrumbs (or alternatively, rub the ingredients together in a bowl with your fingers till it resembles breadcrumbs!)
3) Mix the Caster Sugar & Coconut Together in a separate Large bowl – add the Breadcrumb mixture to the coconut mixture. Mix briefly to combine. Add the beaten eggs to the bowl & Vanilla essence – mix with spatula/wooden spoon until combined! (Shouldn’t take too long)
4) Fold through the Chocolate Chips – spoon the mixture onto the baking trays (I used an ice-cream scoop as I was being lazy – but a tablespoon will do!)
5) Bake them in the oven for 10-12minutes until golden! Leave to cool on a wire rack!
6) Decorate with some melted chocolate an enjoy! 🙂
Tips and Ideas
These in my mind are perfect the way they are – they’re not hard but soft and gooey and delicious! You can use other types of chocolate however, all work equally well!
These will last for 2-3days after baking, and are super yummy when fresh!
