Yummy Almond Coconut Cookies

These are like little angel gifts from heaven….they are disturbingly addictive and amazingly delicious.  Soft and chewy for a long time, they will not last much.  All the ingredients are easy to make and the combination of almonds, chocolate, and coconut is exceptional, and if you never tried this combination before these are the perfect introduction.
