The chocolate dipped coconut sticks cookie recipe tastes so good and looks so elegant next to a cup of coffee or tea!
2 1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut, toasted golden and cooled
1/2 prepared basic butter cookie dough, at room temperature
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Medium microwave safe bowl
Step 1: In a large bowl, mix butter dough and coconut until just combined.
Step 2: Halve dough and on 2 pieces of waxed paper pat into 11 x 2 1/2-inch rectangles. Chill dough wrapped in wax paper for about 30 minutes or until firm.
Step 3: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Step 4: Working with one rectangle of dough at a time, cut dough crosswise into 1/4-inch slices.
Step 5: Arrange slices 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. With a sharp knife halve each slice lengthwise forming sticks; separating them slightly with knife.
Step 6: Bake for 12 minutes or until slightly golden. Leave cookies on sheets for 2 minutes before transferring to a cooling surface.
Step 7: In a medium microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate on medium-high setting until smooth.
Step 8: Gently dip one end of stick into bowl, wiping off excess on rim. Reheat chocolate occasionally if needed to keep thin. Place sticks on wax paper to cool.
