Would You Like Chocolate With That? ~ Chocolate-Coconut "Cookies"

It's Friday - time for chocolate again! I just discovered this recipe in a Pam Anderson cookbook of mine. The recipe is an easy one, which I know you appreciate. I love coconut so I knew I would like it. These cookies are really sweet, but that means I don't need to eat as many - a good thing.

The recipe calls for chocolate chips - you might want to use Nestle Chocolatier dark chips or Ghiradelli dark chips as they are bigger than regular chocolate chips. Or use 2 regular chocolate chips per cookie.

I even took photos for you! Here are the yummy little cookies when finished...

Chocolate-Coconut "Cookies"
1 bag (14 oz) sweetened or unsweetened flaked coconut
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
30 chocolate chips (preferably a bigger dark variety)

Adjust oven racks to lower-middle and upper-middle positions and heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 cookie sheets with foil and spray with vegetable cooking spray, or line with silicone mats.

Mix coconut, condensed milk, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Using a 2-tablespoon measure ( a standard coffee scoop works well; I used a Pampered Chef cookie scoop), drop coconut mixture onto cookie sheets and top each with a chocolate chip.

Bake, rotating each sheet from front to back and from upper to lower positions after 7 minutes, until cookies are golden brown and cooked through, 12 to 14 minutes total. Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool to room temp. (Cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.)

Makes 30 cookies
