This week, I was inspired to get creative with my cookie recipes.  As a big cookie lover (and consumer!), I wanted to make something exciting, original and different, yet deliciously fantastic.

Therefore I took a leap of faith, gathered a bunch of Hawaiian inspired ingredients along with a Peanut’s Bake Shop Cookie Kit, and started baking away.  Thankfully, the end result was a scrumptiously moist and hearty chocolate chunk cookie with just enough coconut and pineapple to send your taste buds to the beaches of Hawaii – true paradise!

In fact, after the first batch came out of the oven, Jeff took a bite and then turned to me and said, “Wow, I was worried this would be weird, but it is absolutely delicious!  Everything works perfectly.” You have to give these Hawaiian Chocolate Chunk Cookies a try.

Why this Recipe Works:

  • Since the base of this cookie recipe is a Peanut’s Bake Shop Chocolate Chunk Kit, your list of needed ingredients is short and sweet!
  • These cookies have a variety of mouthwatering flavors and textures. The flavor combinations are really amazing!
  • The pineapple juice in the recipe makes the cookies that much more moist.

Why are they called Hawaiian Chocolate Chunk Cookies?

  • Three main ingredients in these cookies (pineapple, macadamia nuts and coconut) are found in abundance in Hawaii. YUM!

Is pineapple and chocolate a good combination?

  • Totally! You have to trust me on this one.

How to Make Hawaiian Chocolate Chunk Cookies:

2. Next, empty the cookie kit mix into a mixing bowl.  Then, add all remaining ingredients listed below and mix it again until all flour is incorporated.

3. Create 12 equal-sized dough mounds on a non-stick or parchment-lined baking sheet, (use a second baking sheet if needed.)

4. Bake these babies in your preheated oven for 14-15 minutes or until their edges and tips just start to turn a golden brown color.

Allow the cookies to cool on the sheet for 2-5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.

And that’s all there is to it!
