Heat oven to 350 degrees. Melt chocolate with condensed milk and 2 tablespoons of butter; set aside.

Melt remaining butter in a medium pan, remove from heat.  Add brown sugar; then eggs.  Mix well.

3

Stir in flour, salt, ginger, vanilla, nuts and coconut.

Spread ½ the dough in 15 x 10 inch parchment lined pan.  Drizzle the chocolate mixture over the dough.  Dot the top with the remaining dough.  Swirl slightly with the tip of a knife.  It should look uneven-rough.
