Chocolate Caramel Hamantaschen

🔺These triangular stuffed cookies are for the Jewish holiday Purim, and many believe they resemble the 3-cornered hat that the evil Haman wore.

❌Supposedly, taking a bite out of the cookie is in defiance of bowing down to Haman and preventing him from carrying out his evil plan.

🧺 On Purim, we also make baskets each year with the kids, filled with candy and hamantashen cookies. We give the baskets out to our neighbors and friends to ensure that everyone has enough food for the Purim feast held later in the day, and to increase love and friendship.

 2 cups almond flour
 ½ cup organic cornstarch
  cup brown coconut sugar
 ¼ cup butter or nondairy buttery spread
 ¼ cup milk (we used almond milk)
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 ½ tsp baking powder
 ¼ tsp salt
 Chocolate covered caramel thins, for filling

In a medium sized bowl, combine your coconut sugar, butter, milk, and vanilla extract. Add in your dry ingredients: almond flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt. Mix together until a dough forms (I found using my hands made the process much easier).


Create a ball of dough and store it in the refrigerator in plastic wrap overnight.


The next day, lightly flour a working surface and roll out your dough. We found it easier to use the rolling pin in the beginning, but after a while, just pounding the dough down with our hands seemed to make the most sense since it kept sticking to the rolling pin.


Using the bottom of a cup, make circles in the dough. Take the circle shaped cookie dough and place it to the side. Repeat process until all the dough is shaped into circles. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.


In the center of each cookie, place about 1 tsp of chopped up (or torn apart) chocolate caramel thins. Chocolate chips work here too.


Fold up the edges of the circle so that a triangle shape forms. Watch our youtube video to see exactly how we did this. Pinch the corners so they won't open in the oven.


Preheat oven to 350F. Bake your cookies for 12 minutes, or until they start to brown on the edges. Optional, you can drizzle with melted chocolate. Enjoy!
