Double Chocolate Coconut M&M Cookies
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup unsalted butter softened
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 3/4 cups flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder unsweetened
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup coconut M & M's about 7 pkgs, green candy removed
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup flaked coconut unsweetened
- coconut for top of cookies
Preheat oven to 375°F
Beat butter until softened. Add sugars beat until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time. Mix in vanilla. Add rest of dry ingredients all at once into bowl with butter mixture. Mix just until dry ingredients are incorporated.
Scoop dough onto a parchment lined ( or ungreased) cookie sheet. After the cookies are scooped and ready to bake, pour some coconut onto a plate, and roll the top of the cookie dough ball into the coconut. Place back on pan.
Bake at 375 for about 8 minutes or just until cookies are set.
After cookie is baked, sprinkle with a little more coconut.
-I picked out the green M& M's ...because I knew I wouldn't like the way they looked in the cookies. If green doesn't bother you, leave them in. You'll probably only need 4 packages.
