6 TB butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Karo syrup
7 oz. sweetened condensed milk (1/2 can)
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 cups toasted coconut
Combine 1st three ingredients in a pan and heat to a boil, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Cook 3 minutes and then slowly pour in the sweetened condensed milk. Continue cooking while stirring constantly until it gets to 220-228 degrees F. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and beat until creamy. Stir in coconut. Spoon by Tablespoons onto a greased cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Poke a hole into the center of each one with the end of the wooden spoon. Melt chocolate chips in a plastic baggie (30 seconds at a time and then squeeze the bag to mix) in the microwave. Cut a small hole in the corner of the bag and squeeze stripes onto the top of the cookies. You can also melt chocolate to dip the bottom of the cookies in when cooled.
These cookies are super good! I would recommend not doubling the recipe unless you have someone to help you shape the cookies before they cool. Enjoy!
