Recipe adapted from Pillsbury
My fiance doesn’t like coconut so I only put the frosting on cookies that I eat. If you have a box of chocolate cake mix you can easily make these cookies. The recipe calls for refrigerated store bought cookie dough. Or, you could always make your own cookie dough for these too. Do whatever floats your boat. All you need is a box of chocolate cake mix, one egg, and 1/3 of a cup of oil.
My favorite part of this cookie is the coconut pecan frosting! This cookie reminds me of a German chocolate cake. I think its amazing what you can do with some of the store bought products like Pillsbury has. They even have contests that allow you to win up to a million dollars if you come up with an award winning recipe using their products. I think that would be very cool to win something like that.
