{bake} super chunky christmas cookies

Have you started baking for Christmas yet?  My mom is a super baker.  She makes more than a dozen different types of Christmas cookies, each more delicious than the next.  So, needless to say, for me, it doesn’t feel like Christmas unless there are lots of cookies baking in the oven!  I think I will make 5 varieties of cookies this year.  I actually already have 3 types in the freezer!  This first recipe for super chunky Christmas cookies is adapted from a Food Network recipe.  These cookies are chocolatey, delicious, quick, and easy.


  • 1  1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup white chocolate chunks
  • 1/2 cup chopped cashews
  • 3/4 cup red and gree m&ms


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix flour, cocoa powder, and salt together in medium size bowl.  Set aside.  Beat sugar and butter in stand mixer until fluffy.  Beat in egg and vanilla.  Slowly incorprate the flour mixture until just combined.  Stir in the chocolate chips, white chocolate chunks, coconut, cashews, and m&ms.

Scoop tablespoonfuls on dough onto lined baking sheets.  (These cookies don’t spread much, so you can put them close together)  Bake until set, about 12 minutes.

Makes about 45 cookies.  Once cooled, these freeze really well in a plastic container.
