1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/3 cups coconut flakes
1 cup mini M&M’s
1 cup holiday bits/nonpareils or mini kisses. (Can interchange holiday bits for any occasion.)
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Stir together graham cracker crumbs, flour, and baking powder. Set aside.
Beat condensed milk and butter until smooth, then add crumb mixture, mixing well.
