The other night my daughter decided to make a batch of her favorite chocolate chip cookies, and since we had some shredded coconut in our pantry, she decided to add some to the recipe.

She loves baking cookies and coming up with new recipes.  It happens to be her thing.  She’s always trying to add something different into the mix!

But these cookies absolutely turned out to be the most scrumptious cookies ever!  Soft and chewy with mini chocolate chips in every bite!  YUM!


And with a little inspiration and imagination, this is how this recipe evolved!



My daughter loves to make giant size cookies, so she used an ice cream scoop to make these large ones.  I prefer using a teaspoon to make the small ones. 

Keep in mind, large cookies will need more baking time, about 12 to 15 minutes; while the small ones only need 8 to 10 minutes.

The mini chocolate chips are my favorite part of the cookie.  Who doesn’t love chocolate? 

Besides the chocolate, the shredded coconut gives them their chewy texture in every bite, making these cookies so irresistible, you can’t just eat one!

Everyone needs a great cookie once in a while; and when you make them homemade, they are the best thing ever!  Don’t you think?

Now, let’s make cookies!



Ok, now you can save, tag, or PIN to your cookie board!  Thanks!

      Thanks Karen! I love Mounds too! But I think you will need to add more coconut to these cookies to taste more like the Mounds candies, But hey – it’s worth trying!
