Almond Joy Cookies

This is what happens in my house when my hubby gets a chocolate craving. I don’t usually like to bake cookies but can’t resist the fun of tinkering with a recipe. I printed out the chocolate chocolate chip cookie recipe from this blog, then I added coconut and almonds. The result was delicious!
