Graham Cracker Cookies with Coconut

These Graham Cracker Cookies are a delicious and easy cookie to make when you just need something sweet but don’t want to derail your diet. They remind us so much of the popular Girl Scout Samoas, with sweet coconut and a hint of chocolate. They’re the perfect little treat to make with your kids and are such a yummy after school snack. You’ve gotta love cookies that you can make with just a few simple ingredients. We actually made these cookies for a news show in Utah and everyone went crazy over them! They’re simple, made with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry, and are incredibly satisfying. Serve with an ice cold glass of milk, and you’ll have a tasty treat fit for any time of day! We promise, you’ll love them!

Four Ingredient Cookies

All you need for these scrumptious snacks are four simple ingredients: graham crackers, a can of sweetened condensed milk (we use fat free and it works great), some semi-sweet chocolate chips and coconut. Simply mix together the first three ingredients and form into balls. Roll the balls into the coconut, flatten out just a little bit using the bottom of a glass or a spoon, and bake. The coconut toasts up beautifully and the chocolate melts just enough to make a gooey, yummy cookie!

Tips for the Best Graham Cracker Cookies

You could change up a few of the ingredients too! Switch out the chocolate chips for butterscotch chips or peanut butter chips. Try drizzling a thin layer of glaze of the tops for an extra sweetness. To get a glaze, simply stir a little powdered sugar and milk together until there are no lumps. Serve hot right out of the oven, or chilled from the fridge.To store, keep them covered on the counter or in the refrigerator. They’ll stay nice and fresh for a couple of days. But they never last that long at my house!
