Caramel Coconut Chocolate Bark

  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups crunchy corn cereal (like Chex)
  • 12 oz. caramel
  • 1 cup toasted coconut chips
-LIne a 10 x 15 inch baking sheet with parchment
-Microwave chocolate chips on HIGH, 1 minute.  Stir.  Microwave on HIGH for 1 more 
  minute, stir until chocolate chips are melted.  Spread the chocolate onto the parchment
  in an even layer (it doesn't have to completely cover the parchment, just take care to 
  ensure that it is spread evenly.
-Sprinkle the cereal evenly onto the melted chocolate.  Lightly press the cereal with your hands
 so that it sticks to the melted chocolate.
-Place your caramel into a microwave-safe bowl and melt according to the directions on 
 the package.  When the caramel has melted, carefully pour the caramel over the 
 cereal/chocolate.  Spread evenly.
-Sprinkle the coconut chips onto the caramel and press lightly with your hands so they
 adhere to the caramel.
-Melt additional chocolate chips (about 1/2 cup) if you want to drizzle more chocolate on 
  top.  A little sprinkle of sea salt flakes is also a nice touch!
-Refrigerate for about 1/2 hour to harden.  Cut into pieces and store (covered) at room 
 temperature.
