  10. Unwrap the caramels (or use the baking caramel bits) and put them into a microwave-safe dish.

  11. Add the milk and salt. Microwave until melted stirring every 30 seconds.  

  12. Once melted, add the toasted coconut and spread over the cookie base.

  13. Allow to cool completely.

  14. Remove the bars from the pan and cut them into the desired shape.

  15. Melt the chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, and dip the bottom of each square in the chocolate.

  16. Or spread the bottom with a spoon, if too crumbly.  Lay them on fresh parchment paper.

  17. Put the remaining chocolate in a zip lock bag and snip the corner.  

  18. Pipe lines of chocolate on each square.

  19. Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens and serve.
