Fudgy Joy Cookies

Soft, chocolaty cookies still warm from the oven are always a big hit. This recipe will remind you of a popular coconut-almond-chocolate candy bar.


3 1/2 dozen

Recipe from

Oxmoor House


2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter or margarine
3 (1-ounce) squares semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup finely chopped flaked coconut
1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted and coarsely chopped


Combine first 5 ingredients; stir well, and set aside.

Combine butter and chocolate in a small saucepan; cook over low heat, stirring often, until melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Transfer mixture to a large bowl; cool completely.

Add sugars to chocolate mixture, beating at medium speed of an electric mixer until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until smooth. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in coconut and almonds. Cover and chill dough 1 hour.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire racks, and cool completely.
