Hola! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I swear Mondays just seem to come out of nowhere, don't they?! I figured I'd share a cookie recipe with you to start the week off with a bang.
Over the past year, I've become obsessed with coconut. This is quite funny as I used to hate it growing up. I'm so glad I got passed that!
Here's a word you need to become familiar with: choconut.
Chocolate + Coconut = Choconut!
Friends. These Choconut Cookies are flippin' amazing. I'm eating one right now as dinner cooks away in the oven (Stewed Vegetable Gratin). I just can't help myself!
Chocolate chips and shredded coconut make for a fabulous combination. Please, please make these! They are simple to whip up and absolutely delicious. Enjoy!
