Equipment

  • Mixing Bowl
  • Saucepan
  • Baking Pan

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 ¼ cups flour
  • cup butter softened
  • 2 ½ cups sweetened flaked coconut
  • 2 cups chocolate chips divided
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons corn syrup
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 7 x 11 inch pan with cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, mix together sugar and flour, and cut the 2/3 cup butter in with a butter knife. Keep cutting it in the mixture until it has formed evenly-sized crumbs.
  • Press the mixture into the bottom of the 7 x 11 inch pan, and bake for 18-20 minutes - until the edges start to turn a golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and set aside so it can cool completely, then increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees.
  • Place coconut on a baking sheet, spread thin. Place in the oven and bake for 2-3 minutes. Remove from oven, stir coconut, and then bake for an additional 2-3 minutes until it has started to brown. Watch it closely so it doesn't burn. Remove from oven and set aside.
  • Place 1 cup of chocolate chips in a small bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, then remove and stir. Continue microwaving in 15 second intervals until chocolate chips are completely melted. Pour chocolate chips over shortbread mixture in the 7 x 11 pan, then let it cool completely.
  • In a sauce pan over medium heat, combine the 1/2 cup butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and sweetened condensed milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly (you don't want the mixture to burn, so keep stirring). Continue stirring for 5 more minutes, then remove from heat and stir for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  • Combine coconut mixture and caramel mixture, then spread it evenly over the chocolate chip layer.
  • Melt the 2nd cup of chocolate chips just like the first, and then drizzle it over the top.
  • Let it cool completely, about 1-2 hours, and then serve.
