Coconut Almond Chocolate Chippers Recipe

Coconut Almond Chocolate Chippers Recipe
Superbowl Sunday is fast approaching, and most people want to serve lots of hearty finger foods during the game. Cookies are finger food, and these Coconut Almond Chocolate Chippers are delicious. They are perfect for filling up the cookie jar, and perfect for snacking. There is also nothing fru-fru about these cookies (fru-fru, while often tasty, is generally not suitable for a football feast). Coconut Almond Chocolate Chippers will become a favorite with everyone in the family.

Although these cookies are really good and stay fresh for up to a week, they are especially good slightly warm or on the day they are made when the chocolate is still gooey.
