These Double Chocolate Coconut Cookies are magical!
Whenever I pull a batch of these cookies out of the oven and turn around for second, when I turn back around, a few of them seem to have disappeared.
The other day I made a batch and put them on a plate, covered them, and put them in the pantry. I went to the store and when I got home, the whole dang plate of cookies had magically disappeared.
I love these cookies because they are so soft and the combination of chocolate and coconut truly is heavenly! I think that it is a pretty safe bet to say that the rest of my family agrees with me as well!
