Chocolate Coconut Toffee Delights

I call this a conversion recipe. Previously, I was never a fan of chocolate cookies. However, when my mom came home from Australia and made these for me, I couldn't stop eating them. And neither can anyone else.

I also like it because any recipe that sticks "Delight" at the end of the title makes me smile.

1/2 c flour
1/4 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/4 c butter, cut in small pieces
1 12 oz. pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
3/4 c packed light brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 t vanilla
1 1/2 c flaked coconut
1 c English toffee baking bits (if you can't find them, you can chop up Heath or Skor bars)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in small bowl; set aside. Place 1 cup of chocolate chips in microwavable bowl and melt, stirring well. Add butter to chocolate; stir until melted. Beat in brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla with wooden spoon until well blended. Beat in flour mixture until blended. Stir in coconut, toffe bits and remaining 1 cup chocolate chips. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto prepared cookie sheet. Flatten with rubber spatula. Bake 10 minutes or until edges are just firm to the touch. Cool cookies on cookie sheet two minutes; slide parchment paper and cookies onto countertop. Cool completely.

Coconut, chocolate, and toffee? Bliss. I'm making them tonight and adding "Bliss" to the end.
