Nothing beats the smell of freshly baked cookies, even in this hot weather! Now we all know how obsessed I am with coconut, so yes these bad boys are filled with it… The pieces of gooey chocolate are definitely a treat for the old taste buds too. These cookies are the perfect dessert with a cuppa after dinner, or a cheeky treat at work. I recommend heating them up for 15 seconds in the microwave to get that gooey chocolate deliciousness – and yes that is a word… Enjoy!
