    Vseward (Chef~V)'s Note:

    A friend of mine makesa cookie like this every Christmas and I had to beg for the recipe, she wouldn't share. I decided to give it a go and make my version. These taste just like an Almond Joy candy bar. It's definitely become a favorite. This recipe makes a huge batch of cookies. Depending on the size you make them. You can freeze the dough and have handy when unexpected company or events pop up. This recipe is easy to cut in half. I love the taste of the coconut and have added more to the half batch.

      Well, these didn't taste EXACTLY like the candybar, but they sure were GOOD! Thick, chewy, and full of flavor - I ate 5 or 6 before I finally controlled myself! :) I heeded other reviewers' suggestions by increasing the coconut to 3 c. and decreasing the choc. to 4 c. I happened to have 4 See's milk choc. bars w/almonds, so I chopped those up and threw them in w/the choc. chips (to total 4 c.), and the next time I make these, I will use all milk choc., and no semi-sweet. To me, that's why these didn't taste exactly like the candy bar...the semi-sweet was kind of an overpowering flavor. Anyway, if you love chocolate chip cookies, coconut, and almonds, then I highly recommend these babies! Eat them w/a cold glass of milk, and you'll be in Cookie Heaven!! :)

      100% my new FAVORITE cookie!!! Almond Joy is my favorite candy and the dough (ok, I admit to being one of those who eat the dough... someone has to taste it right, mine as well be me?!?!) DOES taste just like an almond joy candy bar - and the baked up cookies are to die for!!! I served them at a BBQ last night and to family today and and twice someone said 'these are way too good' and they really are, every single person had seconds! DS also loved 'em. I toasted my almonds and roughly chopped them, used half sweetened and half unsweetened coconut and used 1 regular size bag mini chocolate chips - and subbed 1/4 cup egg beaters for one of the eggs. I have a 4.5qt kitchen aid mixer and it was full to the brim - the amount written makes a huge amount of cookies. I had to have my DH stir at the very end, the mixer just wasn't going to cut it. I baked up half and froze the rest of the dough (don't know why I bothered I'm going to have to make again for our next get together tomorrow!) Thanks for posting this very awesome recipe!!

      Very, very good cookies. I hope other Zaar members will try these. They have everything an Almond Joy has -- and even more!!! I used my ice cream scoop to drop the cookies onto the baking sheet. It holds at least 2 tablespoons -- maybe even more. I got a whole lot more than 36 cookies -- probably almost double that. I went back over the recipe and I don't see where I measured anything incorrectly. I'll be interested to know, as others try these wonderful cookies, if they also get more than the 3 dozen the recipe indicates. But who's complaining -- MORE IS BETTER!!!!
