Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 cup chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl combine graham crackers, flour and baking powder.  Stir in condensed milk and butter.  Stir until fully blended with no dry ingredients left.  Stir in chips and coconut (this is easier done by hand).  Shape into walnut size balls.  Place on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.  Bake 12-14 minutes.  Don't over bake.  Cookies should be soft and lightly browned on the bottom.  Makes about 4 dozen.

Comments:  This is one delicious cookie.  When I tried to make them using their original recipe I found the batter to be too thin so I made a few adjustments by increasing the dry ingredients.  This was my end result.   I'm not a chocolate lover but these I can eat and enjoy.  For my chips I used milk chocolate but you can use whichever you like.  These would also be good with butterscotch or white chocolate chips.  And adding maybe 1/2 cup of chopped nuts would make these simply out of this world.
