Non-Pareil Coconut Cookies

Coconut Cookies with Chocolate Non-Pareils

 

I just can’t pass up non-pareils when I see them.  They were my Dad’s favorite.  Dark chocolate drops covered with small white candy balls that crunch when you chew them.  And when I saw the smaller version of Nestle Sno-Caps, I knew they would make the perfect cookie to remember my dad this Father’s Day.  So I put together his two favorites, coconut and non-pareils for a new family favorite.  It’s been a few years since my dad has been gone.  I don’t think grief from losing a loved one ever leaves.  But I know it does change with time.  I can now focus on all I had….and not on what I don’t have.  This Father’s Day my heart will be full.  Reminiscing of the times he would play loud music in the living room while we danced, blowing the trumpet he played in high school, the  car rides with ice cream cones and later as a grandpa, making my kids squeal as he popped out his false teeth!
