Directions
For crust:

For filling:

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Carefully pour over pecans and coconut, spreading evenly.
2.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes more or until filling is set. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
3.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine caramels and milk. Cook and stir over medium-low heat just until caramels are melted. Drizzle caramel mixture over filling. Sprinkle with chocolate pieces. Cool completely. Cut into bars. Makes 24 bars.
