With chocolate chips and coconut in the batter and a yummy pecan-coconut frosting, these cookies will remind you of German chocolate cake. A drizzle of chocolate tops them off in a festive way.

I made these back at Christmas and put them in a tin with wax paper. Gave as a gift to a co-worker.

How to Make Coconut Pecan Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. FOR FROSTING: In a large saucepan, combine the egg, milk, sugar and butter. Cook and stir over medium-low heat for 10-12 minutes or until slightly thickened and mixture reaches 160 degrees. Stir in coconut and pecans. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in 2 cups chips and coconut.
