HOMEMADE COOKIES TOPPED WITH TOASTED COCONUT, CARAMEL AND CHOCOLATE!













STEP 1: Slice 16.5 ounces of Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Dough into rounds (The thicker they are, the larger your cookies will be!) 

 I used a straw to make center holes but you can skip this and cut the holes when they come out of the oven which worked better!
Bake on parchment paper lined cookie sheets at 350 for 15-17 minutes or lightly golden. Let cool completely. I made 12 large cookies

STEP 2: DIP THE COOLED COOKIES"
MELT 3 CUPS CHOCOLATE CHIPS (DARK, SEMI OR MILK) AND DIP EACH COOKIE INTO THE CHOCOLATE. SET ON WAX PAPER. YOU CAN DIP JUST BOTTOMS IF U PREFER BUT I DIPPED THE ENTIRE COOKIE.

STEP 3: MAKE THE TOPPING AND PLACE ON COOKIES WHILE CHOCOLATE IS STILL WET.
3 cups shredded sweetened coconut
12 oz. caramels
3 tablespoons cream
Preheat oven to 300 degrees and spread coconut on a baking sheet. Bake it and toss often until lightly toasted and golden -about 15-20 minutes. Cool on baking sheet, stirring occasionally. Set aside.

Place caramels and cream in microwave safe cup and heat until melted and smooth. When smooth, stir in the toasted coconut.
Using a small spoon, carefully spread the topping on cookies. Use any extra chocolate to drizzle across the top! Then u can set in fridge to speed the process of everything firming up. Enjoy!

What if you used sweet condensed milk instead of cream? Too sweet?
