Dark Chocolate Toasted Coconut Cookies

Dark Chocolate Toasted Coconut Cookies

For the dark chocolate toasted coconut cookies, I chose large dark chocolate chips.  Because let’s face it, why would you use the small chips when there are large ones available?  Why on Earth would you use small ones?  It’s like eating a regular Oreo cookie when they make mega stuffed ones?  They should call the regular Oreos diet Oreos.  Now they make thin ones.  What’s the point of that?

For the toasted coconut, I bought some toasted coconut ones from Trader Joes.  They have been dusted with sugar and toasted so they are crispy and sweet.  I eat them by the bag full while I’m sitting in front of the TV watching Bravo Housewives.

I can put down a bag in no time!  Usually before the first commercial break.

You are going to love these cookies!  They remind me of an Almond Joy candy bar, without the almonds.  Okay, so I guess they remind me of a Mounds bar.  Sorry for the lapse in candy bar specifics.  Connor said that they remind him of an Almond Joy but without the nuts so I guess it just stuck with me.  Whatever they remind you of, they are good!  Perfect warm out of the oven and washed down with a glass of ice-cold milk!
