Toasted Coconut, Toffee, & Chocolate Chip Cookies

Jump to Recipe

Last week I was going through our chocolate drawer in our freezer. Yes, we have a special drawer for chocolate and it is packed full:) I found two bags of Heath toffee bits at the bottom. I forgot they were in there. I didn’t want them to feel neglected any longer so I decided to make Toasted Coconut, Toffee, and Chocolate Chip Cookies. These cookies are loaded!

I like coconut, but I LOVE toasted coconut. Toasting coconut brings out a nutty, powerful flavor that I adore. The toasted coconut and toffee bits create a chewy cookie that is to die for. I wanted an extra kick of chocolate so I stirred in a handful of chocolate chips. These cookies have it all! Josh even declared them as his new favorite cookie. He says that a lot so we will see how long it lasts:)

This is our 100th cookie recipe on our blog! I knew I had a cookie obsession, but WOW 100 cookie recipes? Maybe I need help:) Don’t worry, I am not done baking yet. I have plenty of new cookie recipes to share, so stay tuned. For now, enjoy a batch of Toasted Coconut, Toffee, and Chocolate Chip Cookies-they are outstanding!

  • 1 cup flaked sweetened coconut
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  1. Freezing the chips is a great idea-especially with chips you can’t get year round! We’ve tossed around getting a freezer for the garage…now I know what I would put in it (I think Josh has major meat plans for it though haha). The cookies look amazing! When we finally meet up- we’re baking cookies!

  2. 100 cookies? That deserves a celebration!!! I love cookies, so it’s all good. πŸ™‚
    These ones look picture perfect and the combo makes me drool — toasted coconut? Yes, please!

  3. I’ll have to see how many cookies are on my blog. I’m probably up there near 100, too. ‘Course, that’s most of what I post. LOVE toffee….and coconut….and chocolate chip cookies! Congrats on the 100 and many, many more.

  4. i love coconut but too bad im the only one the house who does! if i make me ill have to eat all of them by myself, not that thats a bad thing though aha! wow 100 cookies? my nickname is cookie monster but even i havent had 100 types of cookies, man i need to live up to my name!

  5. These sounds wonderful! I love coconut in cookies…but I don’t think I’ve ever added TOASTED coconut. What a great idea! Keep the cookie recipes coming.

  6. These just came out of my oven…and they smell soooo yummy. I think this is destined to become a favorite go to recipe.

  7. These could very easily become my most favourite cookie of all time! They have lots of my favourite cookie ingredients!! Can’t wait to give them a try (I still need to try your vanilla pudding cookies too!)

  8. josh and maria…. these cookies look way too good. something that i would hover over at a dinner party and hide my 4th cookie in my purse for later. I am a huge sucker for toffee so i am going to have to try these.

    thanks πŸ™‚

  9. Sounds awesome, such a great looking cookie, love the cracking tops. I recently discovered I quite enjoy coconut (used to hate it), so I’m constantly looking for new coconut flavoured recipes. And congrats on 100 Cookies :). Hope I get there someday (though it’ll probably be with muffins or cakes :)). Right now, I’m working for a recipe count of 50 :).

  10. These might be my favourite new cookie too and I haven’t even made them yet! They sound even better than the salted caramel chocolate cookies and those are my current favourite! I’m going to make them this weekend. (and I love that you have a chocolate drawer in the freezer – i have a chocolate section too and people laugh at me!)

  11. Made these cookies for the first time today…another hit! My husband who is quite the cookie connoisseur called them, “Delectable!”

  12. I was really excited for these cookies….they smelled great and the batter tasted good too. However they were WAYYYY too sweet. Almost inedible πŸ™ I’m going to go buy some whipping cream to eat with them to tone down some of the sweetness. Next time (if there is a next time) I’ll probably use unsweetened coconut and leave out the chocolate chips because the toffee adds a ton of sweetness.

  13. Just made these and they are awesome! I only had unsweetened coconut and no coconut extract so I used extra vanilla. They definitely loved up to their pictures and comments!

  14. I made these (a double batch) this week for our monthly birthday celebration at work and had 20+ ladies as “tasters”. These cookies were a big hit…I loved them (kept a few at home for the family…hubby loved them too, and he’s not normally a big toffee fan.) The coconut flavor is very subtle, but you get the “chewiness” from the coconut which is a plus…you mostly taste the toffee and chocolate. This recipe is a keeper…thanks for sharing this recipe!

  15. These are my boyfriend’s favorite cookies!! He says they’re even better than his mom’s famous cookies πŸ™‚ Thank you for the recipe!

  16. made these twice already and I’m not usually a coconut person. My husband who doesnt have a sweet tooth loves these cookies. It’s perfect without being too sweet and buttery!

  17. These cookies are AMAZING. Texture and taste is perfect. I just made a double batch and can’t wait to share them! Thank you!

  18. I have been makin these cookies for a few years now and everyone always loves them…..I am about to make them for a sheriff’s department banquet and will need to make them in bulk. My question to you is have you frozen the dough or even the made cookie for these before? I know some cookies just dont freeze well.I would truely appreciate if you could email me with an answer! I hope to hear back from you soon. Thanks!


  19. I found this recipe a year or two ago and have been making these ever since! At first I didn’t think there were enough wet ingredients (I used a hand mixer and the dough was really thick since it’s full of coconut and chocolate) but the cookies turned out perfect! I’ve never used coconut extract in this recipe and they still taste delicious. πŸ™‚ Thank you!
