"I have four daughters, and my family has a big love of a certain candy bar. I was inspired to create a cookie that would satisfy the cravings! The result is a light and airy cookie that's crisp, packed with flavor, and addicting! It's hard to stop at one. You can switch out the semi-sweet chocolate with your favorite chocolate flavor or just leave the chocolate off altogether. Don't be fooled by the small amount of chocolate because this cookie packs a lot of flavor. These are super easy to make."

These are a yummy little cookie! i didnt have any almond extract so i just used vanilla loved them!! i melted some white chocolate and drizzled it over them! I will defiently make these again! I cant stop eating them! Thank you for this wonderful recipe...
made Valentine's. cookie using heart mold and homemade icing, these cookies were perfect
Excellent cookie!!!!! I was impatient, and didn't let my butter get to room temp, so I used a little less flour so the dough wasn't too dry. I also subbed half the coconut for chopped almonds! Thanks for the great recipe Donna!
I wanted an easy cookie recipe using coconut that I could take to a cookie exchange. This was a hit. I was worried when I was making them because I used a small scoop to ensure even sized cookies and the dough didn't seem to stick together very well because it was so tender. I didn't bother to roll them into balls, just scooped them onto the parchment paper, flattened with the bottom of the glass and baked. They came out of the oven a bit delicate ( ok, I didn't wait til they cooled before I tried to cool them on the racks). The next morning they were sturdy and worked well for the exchange. My husband is a big coconut fan so I may add 1/2 tsp coconut extract next time, but they were delicious as is. Perfect with tea.
I made it exactly as written and they are very tasty, they smell fantastic when cooking. I will probably add a splash of cream next time to help with the cookie dough being a tad dry to work with but the consistency did not harm the flavour in any way.
