Chocolate Coconut Bars

adapted from: The Lion House


2 c. crushed graham crackers

1/2 c. unsalted butter, melted

4 Tbl. sugar

2 c. sweetened flaked coconut

1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk

1 (12 oz.) pkg. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan and line with parchment paper; set aside.  Mix graham crackers, butter and sugar together and press into prepared baking pan.  Bake for 7 minutes.  Remove from oven and sprinkle coconut evenly over the hot crust and pour the sweetened condensed milk over the top.  Return the hot pan to the oven and bake for 15 minutes. 


Remove from oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top.  Allow to sit for a few minutes or until the chips are soft.  Spread chocolate evenly over the coconut filling.  Allow the chocolate to set up and cut into bars.  This can be refrigerated to help the chocolate set.
