Chewy chocolate chip coconut cookies

Beside chocolate and cheese in creamy cheesecake, chocolate and coconut is one of my top favorite combo.  And I’ve heard is one of your favorite combo as well.

One of my favorite candy bars is Mounds (or Bounty as we European are used to). I love the packed coconut covered with a this layer of chocolate.

I’ve made my own mounds bars few times (they didn’t turn out pretty, but so so delicious) and now I’m working on a new coconut recipe, still needs a little tweaking.

But until then I give you chewy chocolate chip coconut cookies.

I’ve made these cookies a while back, right after I made the Fudgy Brownies with Candy Cane Frosting and hubby said these are the cookies Santa will leave all the gifts at our house if I make him few dozens to take back to North Pole.

Coming from my picky husband, that says a lot. I knew these cookies are a keeper and just perfect for the second week in our 12 weeks of Christmas treats hosted by Brenda of Meal Planning Magic

12 weeks to Christmas

 These cookies are packed with unsweetened shredded coconut and semi-sweet chocolate chip.

They don’t need lots of work to put together. Cream the butter and sugar, add the rest of the ingredients, chill while the oven is heated and bake.

Get a tall glass of cold milk and enjoy.

That’s all it takes to make these irresistible chewy chocolate chip coconut cookies.

    These look yummy Roxanna. And definitely a tall glass of milk would be their perfect companion! I made some Almond Joy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars a while back and they were a huge hit here at home. I’m getting excited about holiday baking – so many great cookie recipes to decide on.

  2. Dawn says

    These look so good! We are huge fans of coconut in our house! I can’t wait to try these! I am looking forward to baking with you!

  3. Paula @ Vintage Kitchen says

    This is a winning flavor combination, I agree. A great treat year round! I think I saw Nigella deep frying Mounds bars…

  4. Jocelyn @BruCrew Life says

    I am addicted to coconut in cookies! Your cookies look so perfect and chewy…pinning this for sure!!!!

  5. says

    Oh, I MUST make these! I took some fantastic coconut macaroons along with some other treats to a tailgate last weekend…nobody touched the macaroons, and I was thrilled I could bring them back home to ME :)

  6. Laura says

    These look delicious. Something about the texture of shredded coconut bugs me–do you think I could substitute flaked coconut?

    • says

      Hi Laura,
      I’m pretty sure you can use flaked coconut and if you want to skip it all together you could use some chopped nuts, but I prefer coconut.
      Thanks for stopping by

    Made these last night and they are delicious! I will definitely keep this recipe close by and make often. Too bad for my waist but really good cookies.

    I just tried this recipe, the cookies turned out AMAZING. I only used half the amount of coconut and chocolate chips, as I realised halfway through that I only had sweetened coconut and chocolate, so I was a bit scared it would turn out too sweet. They turned out amazing nonetheless, and were amazingly soft on the inside and slightly crispy around the edges. Will definitely be making again!!!
