Chocolaty Double Crunchers


I first tried these fun crispy cookies at a family picnic when I was a child.  Packed with oats, cornflakes and coconut, they quickly became a “regular” at our house.  Years later, I still make them for my own family.

½ cup packed brown sugar

1 egg

½ tsp. vanilla

1 cup flour

½ tsp. baking soda

¼ tsp. salt

1 cup quick-cooking oats

1 cup crushed cornflakes

½ cup flaked coconut

Filling:   2 packages (3 oz. each) cream cheese, softened

1 ½ cup confectioners’ sugar

2 cups (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted


In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy.  Beat in egg and vanilla.  Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.  Stir in the oats, cornflakes and coconut.

Shape into 1 inch balls and place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets.  Flatten with a glass dipped lightly in flour.  Bake at 350 F. for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.  Remove to wire racks to cool.

For filling, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth.  Beat in chocolate.  Spread about 1 tablespoon on half of the cookies and top each with another cookie.  Store in refrigerator.            2 dozen
