Chocolate Coconut Pecan Cookies

These ooey, gooey, chocolaty, chewy cookies are to die for. In our house these cookies are known as dad's favorite, but they are loved by all who pop them in their mouth. Combining chocolate, coconut, and nuts they bring with them a burst of flavor that is incomparable.

Making these cookies was a bad idea in the first place, but taking pictures of them was even worse. I mean just look at them, they're gorgeous! And if you think they are pretty, you should taste them! I literally ate every single cookie I took a picture of, which is A LOT! But you can't judge me until you try them, so good ahead and get cookin'!
