Chocolate Coconut Coffee Cake

My mom used to make this every Christmas Day morning, so when we started having our own Christmas mornings I had to get the recipe from her, it is sooooo good.

2 cups biscuit/baking mix
1/2 cup sugar, divided
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted, divided
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup flaked coconut
1/4 cup chopped pecans

In a large bowl, combine the biscuit mix and 1/4 cup sugar. Whisk the egg, milk and 2 tablespoons butter; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Pour into a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Pour chocolate over the batter; cut through batter with a knife to swirl the chocolate.
Combine the coconut, nuts, and remaining sugar and butter; sprinkle over the top. Bake at 400° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 9 servings.
