chocolate chips & coconut, reimagined.
These aren't the cookies I thought I was going to make.
I began with the recipe on the back of the chocolate chip bag, but then, as sometimes happens, a few ingredients were added, and others were replaced. Coconut oil seemed like a good idea when the butter ran out, and then, the exactly one-quarter cup of shredded coconut left in the pantry was tossed in as well (just for good measure).
I don't know if I have ever before had mini chocolate chips just lying around, begging to be used, but these were, and I really would emphasize the necessity of using mini chips for these cookies. They're just cuter. And you can sneak in a higher chocolate to cookie ratio if that's the kind of cookie you prefer. (I do. Husband doesn't. Its a rough world we live in, kids).
But mostly I would suggest doubling the batch, then hiding half, because if you don't (like I did), your husband may eat them all before you've even had a chance to sample one.
