Chocolate Coconut Cookies – flour-less cookies made with sweetened condensed milk, unsweetened chocolate, shredded coconut, pecans and vanilla.
Chewy, chocolatey and delicious, but not too sweet.
Here is Day 4 of our 12 Days of Cookies!
This is a previous post, but these cookies have been such a hit here on 365 Days of Baking and More that I thought now might just be the perfect time to re-share them.

Here you go, just a recipe tonight.
No small talk.
Sometimes it’s just better that way and besides, my son is waiting for the computer.
I’m still waiting for my personal new MacBook to show up in my lap. haha
This is from one of my favorite cookbooks, the Fannie Farmer Cookbook, Thirteenth Edition.
- 1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
- 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate chopped into smaller pieces
- 2 cups shredded coconut I used sweetened
- 1 cup pecan pieces
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- dash of salt
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl place over a small saucepan of simmering water, combine the sweetened condensed milk and chocolate. Stir constantly over heat until chocolate is completely melted.
Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Do not over bake, chocolate may burn and burnt chocolate tastes anything but yummy!
I rate everything I make on a scale of 1-4 and these Chocolate Coconut Cookies earned 3 1/2 rolling pins.
I loved the chewiness, the chocolate, the coconut and the overall flavor.
They were quite tasty, but not too sweet, so it was easy to eat more than one…or two…or three.
