Fudge Chocolate Coconut Drops with Chocolate Chips

Soft dark chocolate fudge rolled in coconut and semi-sweet chocolate chips. This is another super easy and fast recipe to make. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c. butter, softened
  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. coconut extract
  • 1 1/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 c. sweetened flaked coconut

Directions

  • With an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar at medium speed until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Add to butter mixture a little at a time, beating until well combined. Beat in vanilla extract and coconut extract. Stir in chocolate chips {Batter will be pretty thick.}
  • Place coconut in a small bowl. Scoop out tablespoonfuls of batter {I use a cookie scoop} and roll into approximately 1-inch balls. Roll each ball in coconut, pressing gently to get as much coconut to adhere as you can. Place balls about two inches apart on a baking sheet.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 9-10 minutes until coconut is lightly toasted on the edges and cookies are set {I like to take mine out right at 9 minutes so they’ll be on the softer side}. Let stand on the baking pan for 2 minutes; remove from pan with a spatula and let cool completely.

    Makes about 3 1/2 dozen cookies.
