Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 8 oz. can crushed pineapple, drained and excess moisture squeezed out
  • 7 oz. sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup coarsely-chopped almonds, pecans or macadamia nuts
  • 1-1/2 cups white chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan.

  2. Mix the graham cracker crumbs and confectioner's sugar together. Stir in the melted butter.

  3. Press the crumb mixture firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.

  4. Meanwhile, combine the sweetened condensed milk, pineapple, coconut and nuts until blended. Pour into prepared crust, leaving a 1/8-inch border all around the edges.

  5. Bake until just set, 10-15 minutes.

  6. Remove from oven, and immediately sprinkle white chocolate chips on top. Let stand 3-4 minutes until the chocolate softens. Then, using a spatula, spread the chocolate evenly over the top to form a frosting.

Cool completely before serving.
