  9. Press into the prepared baking pan and set aside while assembling the melted chocolate.

  10. In a large microwave safe bowl combine the chocolate chips and coconut oil (measured when the oil is in a hardened state).

  11. Microwave in bursts of 15 seconds stirring in between each burst for 15 seconds until melted.

  12. Pour evenly over the bars and tip the pan around to move the chocolate in an even layer on top.
