The name may be a mouthful but these cookies are absolutely amazing. We were having friends over for dinner and the kids and I decided it would be fun to bake cookies for dessert. I was going to use regular chocolate chips but realized that we were out so I grabbed the white chocolate and semi sweet chocolate swirl chips. We decided to add coconut and pecans to the cookie mix as well. I also wanted to add some whole wheat flour instead of using all white flour. They turned out so delicious – they were a HUGE hit with everyone. I’ve been trying not to eat many sweets lately but I had to sneak a bite of these beauties…they might be my new favorite cookie.
