Hello I have a small problem with my dark chocolate chunck coconut cookies. I can't seem to figure out how to bring out the flavor of the coconut. Should I roast the flakes? Or should I add coconut extract to the dough? Any ideas would be great. Thank you so much.

Toasting the coconut will bring out the flavor a little. If you want to give the cookie a coconutty flavor, I would say use the extract. Maybe you could try tossing some extract around with the flaked coconut to kick it up a notch before adding it to the cookie dough.

I agree with ckdcr8r. Toast and use extract but be careful don't put in too much or you will take away from the chocolate.

Is the dough itself chocolate or are you just adding chunks of chocolate?

Just dark chocolate chuncks. The dough is just like a regular chocolate chip cookie.
