  2. Stirring occasionally (especially while butter is melting) bring temperature up to between 240-250° F. on a candy thermometer (if not using a thermomter this is the point where it if you cool a bit, it’s soft and stringy). Remove from heat and add macaroon (finely shredded) coconut

  3. stir until coconut is completely mixed into the caramel filling

Assembly
  1. Once baked, sprinkle the cookie base (while still hot) with half of the dark chocolate bar finely chopped. Then add the coconut caramel filling (also still hot) layer evenly over the cookie and chocolate layers

  2. In a microwave safe dish, melt the other half of the chocolate bar (about 30-45 seconds).

  3. Drizzle melted chocolate over the top of the cookie bars. Cool completely before slicing.
