1/2 cup butter-melted
4 T sugar
1 bag milk chocolate chips
2 cups sweetened, shredded coconut

Mix corn flakes, sugar, sugar, and butter together.  Press into a 9x13 pan. Pour coconut, peanuts, and then chocolate chips on top.  Now pour on the sweetened condensed milk and bake a t 350' for 15-20 minutes.  Cool completely and cut up as you would brownies.
