Delightful chocolate coconut cookies which are easy to make and taste so amazing!
I am celebrating the winner of BongMom’s cookbook giveaway with these chocolate coconut cookies!
Drumrolls please, we have a lucky winner for Sandeepa’s book “BongMom CookBook” and the winner is Kusum Rohra.
And to celebrate such a good news, I have for you some chocolate coconut cookies. I absolutely love chocolate and coconut together. I also make a chocolate and tender coconut mousse which is quite a hit with people I know. So I was fairly confident about these cookies, whn I tried the flavour combination the first time. Bu this recent batch surpassed my expectations. These were delightfully good, crunchy and chocolately!
Honestly, the taste of coconut with chocolate is really heavenly. Coconut is such a versatile ingredient, isn’t it? While in recent times it has earned a bad name, in reality, it is really good for health. Now studies are saying it has loads of good cholesterol and is great against bacterial and fungal infections. Well, for me, coconut is an ingredient which enhances the flavor of any dish, whether it is sweet or savory.
I really love most of the South Indian savory dishes, which use coconut as a base. I love the delicious modak which is made during Ganesh Chaturthi which has a filling of coconut and jaggery inside it. I love the use of coconut in baked dishes. In short, coconut is a favorite 🙂
While I was growing up, I have never eaten too much coconut. Mom used to cook mainly North Indian dishes and one of the few dishes which we used to have was the coconut chutney. After marrying a South Indian I have realised how versatile coconut really is. Add it to any dish and oh the flavors!
So try out this super delicious chocolate coconut cookies today! And trust me, you won’t stop at one 🙂
Makes 20-24 cookies.
