14 oz evaporated milk
2 cups sugar
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 heaping tablespoons (and when Grandma says heaping, she means it) creamy peanut butter
32 (very precise, Grandma) finely crushed saltine crackers
1 cup coconut
Pour sugar and milk into a pot. Separate all other ingredients for easy access for the quick mixing later.
Bring milk and sugar to full rolling boil, then stir for three minutes. Add chocolate chips and stir until uniform. Add ingredients, one at a time over heat, until well incorporated. Make sure to thoroughly mix before adding next ingredient. While “batter” is hot pour into a casserole dish and slice like fudge and let cool OR drop teaspoonfuls onto wax paper to make cookies.
