I love coconut and this recipe for chocolate-drizzled coconut cookies is one of my favorites.


These cookies are soft and chewy and taste like a mounds bar in cookie form. I drizzle semi-sweet chocolate over them and I tend to go a little heavy on the drizzle!

I used to dip them in chocolate but found the drizzle technique to be much easier. They taste the same either way so use whatever technique works for you!

Make chocolate-drizzled coconut cookies for your next Christmas cookie exchange party or gathering. This is my go-to cookie recipe when I want something a little different.

3. Drop cookie dough by the spoonful onto greased cookie sheets.
4. Bake at 350-degrees for about 10-15 minutes until slightly golden brown.
5. Let the cookies cool completely before moving to step 6.
6. In a small, microwavable bowl, fully melt the semi-sweet chocolate baking chips. Use a spoon or fork (I use a fork) and drizzle the chocolate over each cookie. If the chocolate hardens, microwave for a few more seconds..
7. Let the chocolate on the cookies set up before serving. It usually takes about 30-minutes and you can put them in the refrigerator to make the process go quicker.
