When it comes to the holidays and cookie swaps this is my go-to cookie recipe. A friend of mine makes a cookie like this every year, she wouldn't share her recipe, so I came up with my own rendition of my favorite candy bar. If you want to make A LOT of cookies, this one's for you. Using a 4 qt mixing bowl, this recipe fills the bowl. Make them as big as you want, they don't spread and you'll want to make sure to have enough. Recipe easily halved, the dough can be frozen and ready for company anytime. I always make a full batch for that purpose.

Wow, this cookie is rich and decadent! Toasting the coconut and almonds adds so much to the overall flavor of this cookie. The combination of two different chocolate chips, toasted coconut, and almonds are amazing. This recipe makes a ton of cookies and bakes beautifully, so get a big glass of milk ready.

Note: We toasted the coconut and almonds at the same time in a 350 degree oven for about 8 minutes, carefully stirring and watching that nothing burned. The Test Kitchen
