You'll need approximately 1 1/2 packages of Walkers Shortbread Rounds to make these cookies. You might want to buy a few extra though, because that shortbread is pretty much the most irresistible thing that has ever entered my home. These cookies can be made with original or gluten free shortbread rounds.
There are two options for the chocolate coating. If you melt the full amount of chocolate listed in the recipe, you'll have enough chocolate to dip and coat the truffles completely. My preference was to drizzle the chocolate over the top of each truffle, leaving the bottom and partial sides uncoated. This made them not quite so sweet and it also let the coconut and shortbread flavors shine through.
