German Chocolate Chip Cookies

Me + You = True Love
That’s exactly how I feel about these cookies.  Happy early Valentine’s Day to me!  I have been smitten with my favorite chocolate chip cookies for a while and I wasn’t sure that anything could ever take their place…until now.
I also adore German Chocolate Cake, so it was quite obviously attracted love at first sight – chocolate, coconut and pecans = unbelievably delicious, especially fresh from the oven.

And…oh my goodness…I used Ghiradelli Milk Chocolate Chips to make these.  I think they really made these cookies, not to mention they’re twice the size of every other chocolate chip I’ve seen.  Amazing!
