Coconut Honey Chocolate Hearts

by Michaela

And here we are, one week before Christmas! And I am restarting to bake some Christmas cookies. This week we will do these Coconut Honey Chocolate Hearts and so I share with you a recipe here too (although I took the pictures already last year)! These are sablé kind of cookies in a heart shape filled with coconut honey spread and coated with dark chocolate with a sprinkle of grated coconut. I have been baking them for a few years and they are one of those that disappear very quickly from the table. What I personally love about these cookies is the honey coconut filling softened them and then they melt in your mouth!

This year, it will be my first Christmas spent in Belgium (yes, for the 24th, 25th, and 26th I was always in the Czech Republic) and also the first Christmas for our Adeline. We wanted to have everything set but due to the circumstances, it seems we need to step down from our expectations and we will be happy if we manage to have a nicely decorated Christmas tree ready this week. We are looking for a real one and here in Belgium, people start to decorate their trees much earlier than in Czech Republic and so we are even a little late with this here. 

As we just moved in our house recently, we don’t have much of Christmas decorations yet. And we still haven’t found much we really liked. Last Saturday we spent 3 hours in one of the biggest garden shops in the Netherlands and we walked out with three items… you read well, three hours and three items purchased (and of course, they needed to push at to the checkout and we were the last ones in the shop…). The weekend before, we also attacked quite a big place but apart from a few branches for my Christmas Wreath, we did not succeed. Who would have guessed that finding a simple red ribbon that would match my Christmas Wreath would not be a piece of cake? Maybe we are too picky, maybe we want too much, maybe we are too late, God knows…

Anyway, decorations or not, the most important is that we can celebrate Christmas together as a family! But before the Christmas Day knocks on the door, cookies! Let´s stop for a while and enjoy some winter coziness by baking Christmas cookies again! Here is the recipe for Coconut Honey Chocolate Hearts.

Ingredients

  • 280 g all-purpose flour
  • 150 g butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 egg
  • 80 g powder sugar
  • 10 g vanilla sugar
  • 180 ml milk
  • 150 g crystal sugar
  • 100 g grated coconut
  • 50 g honey
  • 50 ml rhum
  • 80 g digestive biscuits crumbs
  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • 50 g butter
  • grated coconut for sprinkle

Instructions

Prepare a dough by placing all-purpose flour, butter in cubes, egg, powder sugar and vanilla sugar into a food processor and make a dough, wrap it in plastic foil and keep in a fridge for about 2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 170°C and grease two baking sheets (I use spray or butter to grease them instead of parchment paper because that slightly the shape of the cookies). 

Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 3mm thick and cut out cookies in the shape of a little heart. Place them on the prepared baking sheets and bake for about 10 minutes. 

In the meantime, prepare the coconut spread. Heat the milk in a pan, add crystal sugar, coconut, and honey. Cook for a few minutes, then remove from the heat. Add rhum and ground bicsuits in order to thicken the spread.

Assembling the cookies: Once the cookies are cool, you can put always two hearts together with this spread. Heat the chocolate with 50 g butter in a baine-mairie and dip each cookie in it, placing them on a wire rack. Once the chocolate on top thickens, sprinkle them with grated coconut.
