Chocolate Chips (1 1/2 cups)
and coconut and stir until just combined. Place the dough in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Afterwards, scoop tablespoons of dough onto a lightly buttered cookie sheet, leaving large spaces between each cookie so they have space to spread out.
Just before putting the cookies into the oven, sprinkle them with
Salt (1 tsp)
. Let the cookies bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
After you take them out of the oven, leave them on the sheet to set for 2 minutes, then move them to plates to cool further. Don't stack the cookies until they've cooled fully. Enjoy!
