– In bowl of stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment on medium speed, beat the butter and sugar until mixture is smooth and fluffy. Add flour and salt and continue beating just until mixture comes together to form a ball. Press dough mixture evenly into the bottom of your greased pan. Bake 15 min. Let shortbread layer cool while you prepare the rest of the dessert.
– In a bowl, combine caramel sauce with 1 cup toasted coconut*. Stir to combine well. Spread mixture evenly over the shortbread layer. Sprinkle the rest of the 1/2 cups toasted coconut on top of dessert and lightly press it in so it sticks. Cover and chill until dessert is completely cooled and set.
– Use sharp knife to carefully cut chilled dessert into bars. Place bars on a serving plate. Melt the dark chocolate chips* and drizzle it over the sliced bars. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Cover and chill leftovers.
