Ingredients

  • 1 recipe of Soft Chocolate Cookies on AllRecipes.com for the crust
  • 1 cup pecans chopped
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Follow the recipe at Soft Chocolate Cookies on AllRecipes.com to make the crust.
  • Place the coconut and pecans on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake for about 8 minutes until the coconut is toasted.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, whisk together egg yolks, sugar, and salt until combined. Add butter, and then gradually pour in heavy cream and vanilla. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is fluffy, and begins to thicken about 10 to 12 minutes, and registers about 180 degrees on an instant-read thermometer. Remove from heat and stir in the toasted pecans, and sweetened coconut. After cooling some, stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Press about 2 tablespoons cookie batter into the bottom and sides of each muffin tin. Spoon in the coconut pecan filling on top of the cookie dough in each tin.
  • Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 10 to 12 minutes.
