      Ingredients
      Base
      Filling
      Servings: 9"x13" pan
      Instructions
      Base
      1. Preheat oven to 350℉. In a food processor bowl pulse together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, espresso powder and salt. Add butter and pulse until butter has broken down into small bits. About 10 seconds. Add cream and pulse until just combined (mixture will seem dry). Spray a 9"x13" pan with non stick spray. Line the bottom and two sides of the pan with parchment (will help to lift out squares). Press mixture evenly into pan and bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle base with the chocolate chips. Allow to sit for 1-2 minutes then spread melted chips evenly over base. Allow to cool to room temperature.
      Filling
      1. In a medium heavy bottom pot combine brown sugar, cream, and corn syrup. Heat over medium high heat until sugar dissolves, stirring often. Continue to cook until mixture reaches 225℉ on a candy thermometer, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla, nuts and coconut. Allow to cool to thicken slightly, about 30 minutes.
      2. Pour nut mixture over base and spread evenly. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the entire pan is bubbling. Remove from oven and allow to cool to room temperature. Melt the semi sweet chocolate and drizzle over bars. Allow chocolate to set before cutting. Run a knife along edges to loosen and lift the entire unit out of the pan using the parchment sides. Cut as desired.
      Recipe Notes

      Toast nuts by placing in a single layer on a baking sheet and baking in a 350℉ oven for about 12 minutes, turning once.
