Graham Cracker Balls

This is probably one of the easiest things I’ve ever made. It’s made out of graham cracker crumbs, chocolate chips, condensed milk and shredded coconut: essentially a mix of all the sweet, gooey, and chewy things you can find in the kitchen. Feel free to play around with the proportions and add different kinds of fill-ins or toppings. I put mine in the oven for ten minutes just to get the coconut toasted but you can feel free to skip that step.
