Today was not the best of days...Car is not doing well and I spent all day at the dealership and returned home without it, which in return makes me sad. When I am sad, I need chocolate. So, here is the outcome of my sadness and now I am feeling Very Happy (for now)! Hope you love these as much as I do. Not to sweet but hits the spot in a time of need.
And just so you know...NO, I did not eat them all! haha
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1 1/4 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoons prepared coffee
- 2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
- 1/3 cup of pecans, chopped
- 2 cups (12 ounces) Semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and kosher salt. In a separate bowl with an electric mixer, cream butter and sugars, until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition, add vanilla and coffee. Slowly add the flour mixture just until incorporated. Stir in coconut and chocolate chips.
Drop dough with a tablespoon or a small ice cream scoop, 2 inches apart onto baking sheets and bake cookies for 10 minutes, or until golden. Cool cookies on baking sheet 1 minute and transfer to racks to cool completely.
