  • Bring cream to a simmer over high heat. Remove from heat; add chocolate. Let stand 1 minute; stir to combine.

  • Bring sugar, butter, and corn syrup to a boil in a large saucepan over high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Reduce heat to medium-high; cook, stirring occasionally, until caramel reaches 248 degrees on a candy thermometer, about 15 minutes.

  • Stir in cream mixture; boil until caramel returns to 248 degrees.

  • Immediately remove caramel from heat, and stir in salt and vanilla. Pour caramel onto baking sheet, sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup coconut, and let stand, uncovered, at room temperature at least 8 hours and up to 1 day.

  • Lifting by parchment overhang, transfer caramel to a large cutting board. Cut into 3/4-by-1 1/4-inch pieces; wrap each piece in waxed paper or cellophane.
