After 10 minutes, add chocolate chips and heat another 5 minutes stirring frequently until chocolate is melted. Remove from heat, let cool for 30 minutes.
Candy Bar Mix:
1/4 cup raw, unsalted cashews ground
1/4 cup raw, unsalted Almonds ground

4 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
In a large bowl mix, mix together all dry ingredients. Pour melted coconut butter in bowl and mix (by hand). Once Carmel Chocolate sauce has cooled, pour into bowl and mix.
