Gather the ingredients - * Flour * Brown sugar * Butter * Vanilla extract * Caramel * Water * Coconut * Chocolate chips

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and brown sugar.  Add the  melted butter and vanilla extract, mix to combine.  Mix until a crumbly  dough forms.

Press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.

Set aside to cool completely before continuing.

In a small saucepan, combine the caramels and water.  Cook over medium  heat, stirring often, until the caramels are fully melted.

– Add two cups of the toasted coconut to the melted caramel and stir to combine. – Pour the mixture over the cooled crust.

Top with the remaining 1/2 cup of coconut.

– Once the caramel has set, slice into bars. – Melt the chocolate chips (either in the microwave or a double boiler) and drizzle it over the bars.

– If desired, dip the bottom of the bars into the chocolate as well. – Transfer the bars to the fridge and allow the chocolate to set before serving. – Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
