Britt's {back-of-the-box} Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Cookies

When I was in Utah last week, my daughter Britt made these little yummies. She had found the recipe on the back of a Kroger graham cracker box, and said they were super good... and they were. Maybe even some of my favorite cookies of all time.

Therefore, even though I don't have a picture {yet}, I am posting the recipe.

Actually, I do have a picture haha:

If you don't want to have to squint to read the recipe, I'll type it out here, too!


1-and-1/2 cups graham crackers, finely crushed (about 1 sleeve + 2 full crackers)
1/2 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts (optional... she didn't add them to the batch she made when I was there)
1 cup flaked coconut (optional... she DID add this. So so yummy if you are a coconut lover)
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs, flour, and baking powder.

In another bowl, beat sweetened condensed milk and softened butter until smooth. Add vanilla extract. Add crumb mixture and stir until smooth. Add chocolate chips, coconut, and I would assume the walnuts (if using -- funny thing the recipe doesn't mention them in the directions).

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until lightly browned.

Let cool 5 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

If I had graham crackers at this moment, I'd be making these RIGHT NOW. But I don't.
Soon... very soon.
