I love nothing more than a good home made biscuit and decided to bake some coconut biscuits recently but then Dave had the idea of dunking them in chocolate. Why not? So here is the recipe for the finished Chocolate Coconut Biscuits.

Do you have to dunk these coconut cookies in chocolate?

These are so easy to make and dunking the finished coconut cookies in chocolate was really simple too. These would be a fantastic bake to make with children and a great alternative to traditional chocolate chip cookies too. If you don’t want to dunk them in chocolate they are really lovely plain too!

For this chocolate coconut cookies recipe we use standard granulated sugar but caster sugar also works really well. Golden caster sugar gives a really nice flavour. They turn out quite like shortbread cookies – a really lovely consistency.

These desiccated coconut biscuits last well for a few days in an airtight container and are great to make for a bake sale or give as gifts in individual bags. They’re also wonderful to bake for no reason at all! The children love to help make them when we have friends and family visiting or just as a weekend afternoon treat. They’re just so lovely to make.

What equipment do you need for this cookie recipe?

You can make this recipe simply with things you already have in your kitchen but here are the things we use in case there’s something you don’t already have:

As you can see, it’s all things you probably have already – that is what makes flapjacks so simple and convenient to make.
