German Chocolate Cake Nibbles
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 3 dozen
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cocoa, unsweetened
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line with parchment paper (or lightly grease) three baking sheets, and set aside.
  2. In medium bowl, thoroughly combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In large mixing bowl, use hand mixer to blend butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla, and eggs.
  4. Pouring small portions, add flour mixture into the larger bowl with the butter mixture, beating well after each addition. Add chocolate chips, coconut, and pecans. Mix well.
  5. Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to drop batter onto prepared baking sheets. Each sheet should have at least 1 dozen cookies, depending on the size of your sheet.
  6. Bake about 8 minutes or until cookies are cooked in the center. Since you can’t use the “golden brown” method to judge when chocolate cookies are done, insert a wooden toothpick into the middle of several cookies to check. If the toothpick comes out clean with no batter or wet crumbs sticking to it, cookies are done.
  7. Remove cookies from oven and place on a baking rack to cool.
