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