Chocolate & coconut cookies

Yet another week as started and to be honest I was quite happy to go back to work after a cozy and relaxing weekend at home. London was all white and snowy and I absolutely loved it!

How did you spend your weekend? Did you have a nice one?

Yesterday it snowed the whole day, so it was just the perfect day for some baking and here it is the result:

The recipe is super easy and I love the cookie cutter, it’s so cool being able to carry around your mug and your cookies so easily! I bought mine last year in a Christmas market in Germany, but I have seen similar ones here in the UK as well.

Ingredients:

  • 350g self rising flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 200g butter
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 150g brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • one egg
  • 350g dark chocolate
  • 2 spoons of cocoa powder
  • 2 spoons of grated coconut
Preheat the oven to 180C.
In a bowl, combine all the dry ingredients, mix well until they are well blended together.
Add the egg and mix it with the dry mix. Add the melted chocolate and repeat the process.
You should now have a crumbly mixture. Cut the butter into little cubes and add them to the mix. Now use your hands to get everything together and get a smooth dough.
Once the dough is ready you can flatten it in a 1.5 cm layer and start cutting your cookies.
Bake for about 15 minutes (more or less, this really depends on how strong is your oven!) and you are done! 🙂
