Homemade Coconut Bars

These were my favorite candy bars.   You could add a nut like an almonds, that may be joyous or you could stack them into mounds..  I don’t want to be sued.  Just in time for Easter.

3 cups unsweetened coconut
1/4 teaspoon fine popcorn salt
1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
5 oz sweetened condensed milk
12 oz bittersweet chocolate chips or pieces.

Mix coconut, salt, and condensed milk in medium bowl until just combined.
