Chocolate Coconut Sandwich Hearts

Makes 12 'sandwich' hearts and 12 mini hearts:
  • 225g soft butter
  • 200g plain flour, sieved
  • 100g dessicated coconut
  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 75g sugar

  1. Mix the butter with the sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add the flour and coconut, then use your heads to knead into a dough, adding a little water if needed.
  3. Wrap and chill for half an hour.
  4. Roll out the dough onto a floured surface and stamp out 24 large hearts (4" cutter). Use a smaller cutter to stamp out hearts from the middle of half the larger hearts.
  5. Transfer to a baking tray and bake at 140 degrees C for about 30 minutes. They should still be a little soft when you take them out.
  6. As you allow them to cool, gently melt the chocolate in a pan over a low heat.
  7. Spread the chocolate onto the 12 large hearts, then press the 12 large holed hearts on top to create a sandwich!
