German Chocolate Chip Cookies

We love German Chocolate cake!! The very best part of the cake is the frosting!! Can you imagine putting all that goodness in a cookie...well that is what is so brilliant about this recipe I found over at Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker.  She has some wonderfully delicious recipes!! These cookies were AMAZING!! They were even better the next day.  They are a bit flatter than the normal cookie, but are soft and chewy.  OH YUM!!
German Chocolate Chip Cookies
from Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker
 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs (1 of those packages of crackers thrown in the food processor is usually the correct amount)
1/2 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup softened butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup flaked coconut
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans (Due to allergies I used sliced almonds)
Mix graham cracker crumbs, flour and baking powder. In another bowl, beat condensed milk and butter until smooth. Mix all together, then add coconut, chips and nuts. Slightly grease cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 9 to 10 minutes until light brown.
*You could leave out the nuts if needed and they would still be amazing!!
Thanks,
Frugal Antics
For a great recipe!!

  7. When I first saw the title, I thought they would be chocolate, but they are modeled after the frosting. Bonus! Yum!
