Dark Chocolate Mounds Bar Cookies.

Soft, chewy, and easy cookies for any chocoholic. Stuffed with coconut-y Mounds Bars and generously drizzled with dark chocolate.

My pantry is currently a hodgepodge of chocolate chips, candy bars, dried fruits, and nuts.  So many leftovers from not only my blog, but my cookbook recipes as well. I keep all the goodies in large bags and mark them as “off-limits” to someone (ahem, Kevin) who likes to poke through my stash.

When you’re a baker by occupation you’ll find it easy to resist all the snickers bars staring back at you. I do, however, have a h-u-g-e weakness for Mounds Bars (Bounty Bars outside of the US). I feel like I say that about every candy bar, but you have to trust me about this one.  This is the truth! I’m all about the dark chocolate and gooey coconut.  I didn’t even have enough leftover Mounds Bars from all my snacking to even make these cookies…

…emergency trip to the grocery store yet again.

The idea for these cookies came to mind when I had leftover cookie dough chillin’ out in the refrigerator.  The cookie dough was plain and didn’t have any chocolate chunks in it yet.  I baked a few plain dough balls and topped them with a simple dark chocolate drizzle and shredded coconut. They were dazzling. Dark chocolate and coconut just belong together. And they make a fine addition to a buttery, chewy cookie dough. 

You’ll find today’s cookie dough to be quite familiar.  If you’re anyone who’s anyone, you’ve tried my Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies.  They’re so popular for a reason. Undeniably soft, thick, buttery, and sweet. Bonus points: they are EASY.  No mixer required.

I simply loaded the dough with chopped Mounds Bars and topped each cookie with a semi-sweet chocolate drizzle.  I have no doubt that Almond Joy candy bars would be equally as scrumptious.  Or you could even add a few slivered almonds to this cookie if you’re so inclined. Yum.

What makes these cookies so perfect? Let me count the ways…

1) Melted butter (rather than creamed butter) increases their chewy factor.
2) Just enough flour soaks up all the melted butter, but still keeps the cookies soft.
3) Cornstarch also keeps the cookies soft.
4) Extra egg yolk adds moisture, richness, and tenderizes the dough.
5) Chilling the cookie dough prevents spreading and ensures your cookies will be thick.
6) Silpats do the same as #5.
7) Gooey coconut.
8) Dark chocolate.
9) No mixer.
10) I’m a cookie monster.
11) Chocolate drizzle.

Let’s discuss the chocolate drizzle. All you need is 1/3 cup of dark chocolate chips and a touch of shortening. The shortening is used to create a thin enough “drizzling” consistency.  Otherwise, you’ll have blobs of chocolate on top of your cookies. Delish, but not cute.  You could also use semi-sweet chocolate chips or pure semi-sweet chocolate, such as Ghirardelli.

Melt down the chocolate and drizzle on top.  I like to use a cleaned out condiment bottle for drizzling chocolate and glazes onto my baked goods.  I bought this plastic bottle for $1 at Walmart.  I’ve also seen them at craft stores and Target.

Use an old condiment bottle to neatly drizzle chocolate and glazes. See more at sallysbakingaddiction.com

And I’ve used this bottle countless times to make neat, gorgeous drizzles. See hereherehere, and OMG here.

This is an easy, straightforward cookie recipe made fancy with coconut, dark chocolate, and a heavenly drizzle. The batch only makes about 16-17 large cookies, so if you’re looking to feed a crowd of chocoholics or have a particularly large cookie jar – double the recipe.

Not a fan of coconut? Try Snickers, Butterfinger, Reese’s Cups, Heath bars, Milky Ways, Kit-Kats, Twix. Ok… now I’m hungry.

Dark Chocolate Mounds Bar Cookies

Soft, chewy, and easy cookies for any chocoholic. Stuffed with coconut-y Mounds Bars and generously drizzled with dark chocolate.

Yield: 16 cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: About 30 minutes, plus cooling

Ingredients:

Cookies

  • 2 and 1/4 cups (280 grams) all-purpose flour, (careful not to overmeasure)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks or 170 grams) unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup (150 grams) light brown sugar, loosely packed
  • 1/2 cup (100 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk*
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 10 chopped mini Mounds Bars, about 1.5 cups*

Drizzle

  • 1/3 cup (60 grams) dark chocolate chips (or pure chocolate, or semi-sweet chocolate chips)
  • 1/4 teaspoon shortening for thinning

Directions:

  1. Toss together the flour, baking soda, cornstarch and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a medium size bowl, whisk the melted butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together until no brown sugar lumps remain. Whisk in the egg, then the egg yolk. Finally, whisk in the vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together with a large spoon or rubber spatula. The dough will be very soft. Fold in the Mounds Bars. They may not stick to the dough because of the melted butter, but do your best to have them evenly dispersed among the dough. Cover the dough and chill for 2 hours, or up to 3 days. Chilling is mandatory.
  3. Take the dough out of the refrigerator and allow to slightly soften at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 325F degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
  5. Roll the dough into balls, about 3 Tablespoons of dough each. The dough will be crumbly, but the warmth of your hands will allow the balls to stay intact. Roll the cookie dough balls to be taller rather than wide, to ensure the cookies will bake up to be thick. See this post for more clarity and a photo. Put 8 balls of dough onto each cookie sheet. Bake the cookies for 11-12 minutes. The cookies will look very soft and underbaked when you remove from the oven. They will continue to bake on the cookie sheet as they cool. Keep on the baking sheet for at least 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
  6. Melt the dark chocolate chips and shortening in a small bowl in the microwave.  Drizzle on warm or cooled cookies.  Cookies stay soft and fresh for 7 whole days at room temperature. Cookies may be frozen up to 3 months. Rolled cookie dough may be frozen up to three months and baked in their frozen state for 12 minutes.

*Room temperature egg + egg yolk are preferred for even disbursement.  Typically, if a recipe calls for room temperature or melted butter, it's a good idea to use room temperature eggs as well.  To bring eggs to room temperature quickly, simply place the whole eggs into a glass of warm water for 10 minutes.  

*What to do with the extra egg white? Make these or these.

*Mounds Bars are similar to Bounty bars sold outside of the US.

    So soft and yummy!! chocolate and coconut are such a great combo, the chocolate is rich and the coconut is very moreish. Is a mound bar like a bounty bar over here in Scotland, they sound similar. I am sure if I make these cookies, they will not last one day in our kitchen. We all are lovers of coconut

    These look great, Sally! I’m a bigger fan of milk chocolate than dark, but I still like Mounds a lot. Have you tried the coconut m&ms? They actually make pretty fabulous cookies as well. :) These cookies are so pretty with the drizzle…I’d like to sprinkle some sweetened coconut on top to up the coconut flavor just a tad. Oh my gosh, I LOVE the photograph with the bowl of chocolate in the background…the trickles of chocolate are so pretty on the curvy bowl! Nice addition. And may I say (I’ve noticed many times, but haven’t mentioned it), your table is SO shiny! It could be in a commercial for dust spray or something ;)

    Love that you were able to take some dough and re-purpose it. That ‘a girl :) I mean, there is only so much dough (or new dough bases) one can come up with before you need to shop in your own closet – or fridge :) I need to do it more!

    About 3 yrs ago I made some Mounds Bar cookies. They’re dark chocolate with coconut added to the batter with Mounds pieces chopped in and added. It’s funny because every 3-6 mos or so, that post will get very hot on Pinterest and magazines contact me about using the recipe, too. So I think you’re onto something here with your Mounds cookies :)

    LOVE the choco drizzle -so perfectly applied!

      I have to put huge labels on it “do not eat!!” that seems to keep him away ;) Best to hide it all together though, I should start doing that!

        We have an inside joke about me labeling things with a question mark, which is essentially saying “Do not eat!” (Aka he needs to ask me [the question mark] if it’s okay to eat what’s inside.) So funny how alike our guys are! :)

    I love mounds so much! It’s a candy that my mom and I used to bond over when I was growing up. These cookies look so yummy!

    I have made these cookies several times. They are amazing!! All I would add is that you may have to chill the cookie a bit after you drizzle the chocolate to help it set. I even tried it with Almond Joy making sure to cut up the almonds well. Sooooo Goood!!! I love your cookies and I love the photos as well! I have had people who don’t really like mounds candy bars tell me how amazing these cookies are. A definite keeper!! Thanks Sally!!

    Hi Sally,
    I just made a batch of the cookies and was looking for some advice. I followed the directions and did the scoops of dough taller then wider and looked at the sample you were talking abut but my cookies aren’t flattening they are staing in a ball after baking. They taste great, but would like them to be more of s cookie. I’m making another batch tonight so was wondering if you had any thoughts? I’ve made THE chocolate chip cookies and those turned out great!!

    Thanks!!
    Colleen

    Sally, I found this recipe today and made a double batch. Half Mounds and half Heath bars. I must say, these are absolutely wonderful. My only change was using lard instead of shortning for the drizzle. I expext these cookies to disappear before dinner is over tomorrow. Thank you!!

    hi! is the light brown sugar something like caster sugar? I live in europe so I don’t know if we have the light brown sugar you have (and all the translations and different sugar names make me dizzy! haha)
