Chocoroons recipe

Ingredients

1-1/2 cups flour, sifted
2/3 cup Nestle Quik chocolate mix
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

Sift flour with chocolate mix, baking powder and salt. Cream butter. Add sugar; cream well. Add egg yolks, milk and vanilla; beat well. Blend in dry ingredients; mix well. Chill.

Roll out dough, 1/3 at a time, on floured surface to a 10-1/2 x 5-inch rectangle. Cut in half lengthwise. Spread 1/3 of filling on one strip. Place plain strip on top. Cut into 3/4 inch slices. Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 325 degrees F for 12-15 minutes. Cool. Frost top and sides. (Or frost top and ends; make 1/2 of frosting recipe.)

Coconut Filling: Beat egg whites, 1 teaspoon almond extract, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, until soft mounds form. Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Fold in one 7-ounce package grated coconut and 1 tablespoon water.

Chocolate Frosting: Combine 1 cup Nestle’s Quik Chocolate Mix, 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup boiling water. Blend in 2-1/4 cups confectioners’ sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until thick. If necessary thin with milk.
