My dear friend’s stepson graduated from high school last spring. For his present, I gave him a coupon good for a few care packages sent throughout his first year of college. I recently sent him his first care package filled with magazines, snacks, and these cookies. He loves chocolate and coconut so I decided to combine white chocolate chips, semi-sweet chocolate chunks, and shredded coconut together to make these moist and delicious cookies. I have a feeling these will be a big hit with the college guy and his roommate.
Coconut, White Chocolate, and Chocolate Chunk Cookies:
- 1/2 cup softened butter
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup of white chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks
- 1 1/2 cups of flaked coconut (divided)
How to Make Coconut, White Chocolate, and Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray or line the cookie sheet with a silpat baking mat.
Mix the butter, white sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla until creamy and smooth. Slowly beat in the eggs. In another bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and salt together thoroughly. Slowly add the flour mixture to the egg mixture until well blended. Add the white chocolate chips and the chocolate chunks, and 1 cup of coconut then gently mix. Drop by rounded spoonfuls on cookie sheets. Sprinkle the top of each cookie equally with the remaining coconut.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Allow them to cool before moving them to a wire rack. Enjoy.
