Double Chocolate Toasted Coconut Cookies

Most of my concoctions come from a random craving of ingredients I know are already in my pantry. With the Super Bowl on the horizon, I wanted to throw something together for a party we’re attending and the thought of milk chocolate, white chocolate and toasted coconut in a cookie sounded delectable.

The flavors in this cookie remind me somewhat of an Almond Joy candy bar (minus the almond on top). These are easy to throw together in a pinch and you could substitute the chips or coconut for whatever pieces of candy/chocolate you have in your pantry as well.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 extra large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup toasted sweetened coconut flakes

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  3. In your stand mixer or a separate bowl, cream the butter and sugars together.
  4. Add the egg and vanilla extract and continue to blend.
  5. Slowly add the dry flour mixture a little at a time until it is all blended together.
  6. Add the chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and toasted coconut and mix them into the dough by hand.
  7. Scoop the dough into balls and put them on the cookie sheet. Place in the oven for about 9-10 minutes.
  8. Take the cookies out of the oven and let them cool before removing them from the cookie sheet.
