You won’t get enough of these soft and chewy loaded chocolate chip cookies packed with chopped pecans and coconut flakes! Totally irresistible!!!
It’s the time of the year comfort casseroles are pulled out of the oven just in time for dinner time. It’s that time of the year the slow cooker is brought back to life after a long summer break.
Unfortunately, in the meantime, it’s the time of the year when cough and fever make their weekly appearance. For the last couple of weeks, we’ve been struggling with a nasty cough. My baby girl had it first, my husband followed and now it’s my turn. We’ve been on a chicken noodle soup for a while now. It’s comfort food when your body is aching.
Another comfort food when you’re feeling under the weather? Chocolate chip cookies! With our without the milk, they always put a smile on everyone’s face! Am I right or am I right?
I love chocolate all.the.things, there’s no surprise there, but I also love soft and chewy cookies. If they are packed with chocolate chips that’s even better! Double win!!
There are a lot of chocolate combos that make me week to my knees, but coconut and chocolate combo is definitely in top 5 and these cookies are packed with my favorite things – chopped pecans, coconut flakes and, of course, chocolate chips. Pecans, coconut, and chocolate remind me of one of my favorite dessert – german chocolate cake.
If you love german chocolate cake as much as I do, you’ll love these cookies!
The process is very simple!
You start by beating the butter with brown sugar, mix in the eggs and stir in the dry ingredients in. Fold the pecans, coconut and chocolate chips and your dough is done. Or so you think!
You really need to let the dough chill! This will allow the cookies to hold their shape while in the oven and don’t spread resulting into a cookie as big as your baking sheet. (I guess you could say later you ate only one cookie – so there’s an advantage to that!)
