Spread coconut onto rimmed baking sheet. Bake 5 min. or until dry but not browned, stirring occasionally; cool. Turn oven off.
Combine flour and baking powder. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Blend in egg and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing well after each addition.
Divide dough into thirds; place each in separate bowl. Add one of the following to dough in each bowl: dry drink mix, melted chocolate and coconut; mix well.
Line 9x5-inch loaf pan with parchment, with ends of parchment extending over sides. Press red-colored dough onto bottom of prepared pan. Cover with layers of coconut-flavored dough, then chocolate dough, gently pressing layers together to seal. Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.
Heat oven to 350°F. Use parchment handles to remove dough from pan; remove and discard parchment. Cut dough into 3 lengthwise strips, then cut each strip crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Place, 1 inch apart, on parchment-covered baking sheets.
Bake 9 to 11 min. or until edges of cookies are firm to the touch but not browned. Cool on pan 1 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
Enjoy a serving of these colorful cookies on occasion.
For added convenience, this cookie dough can be frozen. Refrigerate prepared dough, then remove from pan and cut into 3 strips as directed. Wrap each strip individually in foil, then freeze up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in refrigerator before slicing and baking as directed.
