Chocolate Dulce de Leche Bars


1 stick margarine
1 c. shredded coconut
1 c. dark brown sugar
1 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. sea salt (plus more for topping)
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
2 Tbs. margarine, softened
1 Tbs. light corn syrup
1 1/2 - 2 c. milk chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375. Line a 13x9 pan with tinfoil and spray with non stick cooking spray. Combine the coconut, brown sugar, flour, baking powder and salt together in a large bowl. Melt the margarine in the microwave and add to the dry mix. Press the dough into the bottom of the prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine the condensed milk, margarine and corn syrup on low heat until everything starts to get a medium brown color (about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally). Pour on top of the crust and bake for an additional 12-13 minutes. Let cool. Melt the milk chocolate chips in a double boiler until smooth and spread on top of the bars. Sprinkle with sea salt. Cool in the refrigerator until the chocolate is set. Then let sit out and get to room temperature before trying to cut into bars.
