My Kid's Triple Delight - Chocolate, Coconut and Cranberry Cookies

Yum
I have survived the first week of summer vacation with both my kids at home.  Today they asked if we could make cookies so I was more than happy to oblige.  I was ready to make some simple chocolate chip cookies, but they decided they wanted to each add a special ingredient to the cookie batter.  I'm always up for a good experiment so I asked them what they wanted to add.  My son is not fond of any kind of nuts in his cookies so he requested dried cranberries.  My daughter decided her contribution would be baker's coconut. We all wanted chocolate of course and my daughter was thrilled with the little mini chips I added.  Then we waited patiently for them to bake and cool enough for us to taste our creation.  Yippy!!!!! They were fabulous and my kids wanted everyone to know they not only helped make these cookies, they also helped write the recipe.




Ingredients:
1 box of yellow cake mix
3/4 cup chocolate chips (we used minis)
3/4 cup of dried cranberries
3/4 cup of baker's coconut (in the baker's aisle)
2 eggs
1/2 cup of canola oil



Directions:
  Mix the cake mix with the eggs and canola oil.  Then add your  chocolate chips, dried cranberries and coconut. Mix all ingredients into the cookie batter well.

Make golf ball size balls from the cookie dough and place them on a sprayed cookie sheet.  Place them in a 350 degree oven for 15-18 minutes.  When the edges start to turn brown they are ready.  Allow the baked cookies to remain on the cookie tray to cool completely and finish setting.  Store cooled cookies in an air tight container.

Makes 15-18 cookies

  14. Triple delight is right. I these are right up my alley. I love that you used the mini chocolate chips. In my mind they add up to more chocolate throughout the whole cookie. Always a good thing!

  15. Love those cookies, though I'm partial to chocolate chunks instead of chips. Love the addition of coconut, can well imagine the taste. Stellar!

  21. I made these yesterday and they are WONDERFUL! I love the large size and the chewy texture. My kids don't like cranberries so I substituted pecans. Used regular chocolate chips and a little extra coconut :-) Will send a link to this recipe from my FB page!
