  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs and melted butter until well combined, and press into the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish.
  3. Sprinkle on a layer of chocolate chips over the crust, (save a few for the last step) followed by a layer of pecans, and finally a layer of coconut. Drizzle sweetened condensed milk on top.
  4. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until crust is golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes, and top with more chocolate chips. To cut easily, set pan in the fridge for about an hour. Enjoy!
