Place chocolate and 1 Tbsp. margarine in small saucepan; cook on medium-low heat until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring frequently. Spoon 1/2 tsp. of the melted chocolate mixture into center of each cookie. Sprinkle evenly with remaining coconut. Store in airtight container at room temperature.

    easy to make but takes longer to cook than the directions say.

    i've done this recipe with a different version. Instead of the chocolate in the center of the cookie you can try using jam, and you roll the dough in an egg wash, and roll it in the coconut. They are pretty good!
