    1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
    1/2 cup butter, melted
    1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
    2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
    1 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts)

    1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

    3) In a large mixing bowl, beat condensed milk and margarine until smooth.
    4) Add cracker crumb mixture and blend well. Stir in coconut, chocolate chips, and pecans.
    5) Drop by rounded teaspoon on a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake 9-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Store loosely covered at room temperature.

    I usually add some chopped cherries in – rehydrated dry OR marachino.
