These cookies, are very chewy and delicious, but not too sweet If you are a coconut lover like I am, then you will love these little treats. On top of the fact that they are scrumptious, they are so, so easy to make. To me, they are more of a bite of candy (in texture) than a cookie. Whatever you think they are, think this. These are simply fabulous and if you make them for company, your guests will think you slaved in the kitchen. While in reality, you spent a few minutes! Great for the Holidays to give as a gift too.

- Start off by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix together the eggs and sugar in a large bowl, mix well.
- Melt the butter using the microwave in 10 second increments. Add melted butter to the coconut and mix well. . Let stand for a few minutes so the coconut absorbs all of the butter.

- Melt chocolate in microwave bowl in 15 second increments, stirring after each increment, until meted and shiny.
- Using your fingers to hold top of cookie, dip each one into melted chocolate and place on it's side to allow chocolate to dry. Let cool for 10-15 minutes. Then place cookie sheet in refrigerator to let chocolate harden.
