Chocolate Coconut Walnut Cookies

Impromptu baking moments yield the best results. For example, this cookie. I opened my cabinet, finished off a bag of dark chocolate and white chocolate chips, folded in some coconut and who doesn’t like a little crunch in their cookie? One google search, a few 10-minute batches later we chowed down on these deliciously soft and chewy cookies. The best part: if you keep them in a ziploc bag, they last up to a week!
