Line 9x9 inch square pan with parchment paper
In a large bowl, microwave the honey for about 1 minute until it warms up.
Immediately sitr in the peanut butter until completely combined.
Gently stir in the cereal and 1/2 cup of shredded coconut until completely coated with peanut butter/honey mixture.
Press very firm into the prepared pan to make sure everything sets properly.
Chill in the freezer until the bars set - around 30 minutes - 1 hour.
To make the Chocolate Ganache:
Place milk and coconut oil int a small sauce pan over medium heat.
Cook 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until coconut oil has melted completely but do not allow the milk to boil.
Stir the chopped chocolate into the saucepan and incorporate with the coconut oil and milk until everything is completely melted and the mixture is shiny and smooth.
To Assemble Bars:
Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Cut chilled bars into equal squares. Dip the bottom of each bar into the chocolate ganache and lay upside down on the lined cookie sheet allowing the chocolate to set and dry.
Repeat with remaining bars. Place the tray in the freezer or fridge to set quicker.
Once the chocolate has set, turn the bars, add the remaining shredded coconut and drizzle the top of the bars with caramel sauce and remaining melted chocolate ganache.
