A nicely fattening combination of coconut and chocolate chips

This comes from Mom. (She doesn't know where she got it; she memorized it years ago and lost the original recipe.) It's always been a favorite with us kids, and last time I was home she gave me the recipe. It's so simple that even a complete clutz like myself was able to make it perfectly the first time.


(One batch)


  1. Melt the margarine in a 9 x 13-inch pan. Combine with graham cracker crumbs and spread evenly on bottom of pan.
  2. Sprinkle coconut evenly over crumbs.
  3. Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over coconut.
  4. Pour condensed milk evenly over everything.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes at
  6. Let cool for a bit. Cut into squares and enjoy.


Mom insists on using "Borden Eagle Brand" sweetened condensed milk. Don't ask me why.


Difficulty: trivial.
Time: 5 minutes preparation, 30 minutes cooking.
Precision: No need to measure.
