Ingredients
Cookies
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp brewed coffee (strong; at room temperature)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp espresso powder (alternatively, you could use instant coffee granules)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
Topping
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup coconut
Filling
  • Caramel Ice Cream
Instructions
  1. Beat butter until light and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes. Add in brown sugar and white sugar and beat until combined. Add in egg. 

  2. Add in vanilla extract, brewed coffee and salt. Mix until combined. 

  3. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, and espresso powder. Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
  4. Once combined, add in the chocolate chips and coconut; mix.
  5. Chill the dough for 20-30 minutes, just to firm it up slightly. (Because I'm impatient, I typically scoop the dough onto trays and pop them into the freezer for about 5 minutes instead).
  6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a cookie sheet.
  7. With a medium cookie scoop (about 2 Tbsp of dough per cookie), scoop the dough and spread evenly on the cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart (the dough makes about 12 large cookies).
  8. Bake for 14-15 minutes, or until the cookies are slightly golden brown. Allow cookies to cool.

  9. Once the cookies have cooled, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in 30-second increments on 50% power, stirring after each hit in the microwave.
  10. Dip 6 cookies into the melted milk chocolate about halfway.* Lay each cookie down on parchment paper and sprinkle with coconut. Allow chocolate to cool, about 30-60 minutes at room temperature, or 15-20 minutes in the refrigerator.
  11. Fill the remaining 6 with 1-2 scoops of ice cream and top with the 6 chocolate dipped cookies.

  12. Enjoy! Freeze leftovers.
Recipe Notes

*If you want to dip all cookies into the melted chocolate, you will probably need to double the amount of melted chocolate.
