Step 1: Prepare Graham Cracker Crumbs

In a food processor, grind the graham crackers by pulsing until the crumbs resemble course sand.

Tip

No food processor? Put the graham crackers into a zip-top bag, seal it, and use a rolling pin to crush them inside the bag. Pour the crumbs into a large mixing bowl and use a sturdy wooden spoon to combine the remaining ingredients.

Step 2: Add Remaining Ingredients

Add the sweetened condensed milk plus 1 cup of the coconut, and pulse again.

Pour the chocolate chips in last, taking care not to chop them with the mixer's blade. If necessary, use a spoon to incorporate. Note: The mixture will be very thick.

Step 3: Create Balls

Pour the remaining 3 cups of coconut onto a small baking sheet with a non-stick liner and drop 1-inch balls of batter, one at a time. Roll into a ball, coating with coconut as you go.

Tip

The batter will be firmer and hold its shape better if you allow it cool in the refrigerator for 1 hour before moving onto this step.

Step 4: Chill

Assemble all the balls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour or more.

Tip

The dough will soften at room temperature. If your balls start to lose their shape while you're assembling them, chill in the freezer for 10 minutes then roll them in your palms again to reshape as needed.
