  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar firmly packed
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Toasted Pecans and Coconut

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Add chopped pecans to a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes. The add shredded coconut to the pan as well and bake for another 7-10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
  • While coconut and pecans are baking prepare caramel sauce.

Caramel Sauce

  • In a medium sauce pan combine butter, brown sugar, water, and salt. Place over medium-high heat and constantly stir until butter melts.
  • Once butter has melted, reduce heat to medium and bring to a rolling boil for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally so that it doesn't overflow the sauce pan.
  • After caramel has boiled for 5 minutes remove from heat and stir in coconut milk and vanilla extract.
  • Let the caramel rest 10 minutes to thicken. Add coconut and pecans and stir together to combine.
  • Slice bars into 9-12 servings, and drizzle the Toasted Coconut Pecan Caramel Sauce over the top. Grab and spoon or fork and devour.
  • Another great topping is a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Enjoy!
