  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper, then arrange the plantain chips in an even layer
  3. Combine the coconut sugar, ghee, coconut oil, and water in a medium saucepan. Turn heat to medium-high and begin stirring the mixture so the oil and ghee combine with the coconut sugar
  4. As the mixture starts to heat up, whisk it (vigorously) in one direction. The oil and sugar may separate, but continue whisking to combine
  5. Whisk about 4 minutes, watching very carefully to avoid burning the sugar. Once the mixture is combined and the consistently of melted caramel, remove from heat immediately. You have two options from here: Carefully drizzle the caramel on top of the plantain chips, trying your best to coat evenly OR gently pour the caramel on top of the plantain chips and using a rubber spatula, mix the chips around to evenly coat. You will have to do this quickly, as the caramel will begin to thicken once cooled. When the chips are coated, quickly arrange them back in an even layer. You may have to pull them apart with your fingers, as they will be sticky. *I chose this step, since wanted the bottoms of the chips to be caramelized as well as the tops
  6. Place the plantain chips with caramel into the oven and cook for 5 minutes, until the caramel is bubbly. Be careful not to burn
  7. Remove the pan from the oven and let cool as you prepare the chocolate
  8. Pour the chocolate chips in a medium glass bowl and heat in the microwave for 20 second intervals, mixing the chocolate between intervals. Once most of the chocolate is melted, remove from the microwave and stir until all the chocolate is melted
  9. Drizzle the chocolate on top of the plantains and spread evenly with a spatula
  10. Let cool at room temperature. If desired, add a little pink himalayan salt to top
  11. Place the pan into the refrigerator to chill. Once chilled and the chocolate has hardened, gently break off pieces to desired size and serve!
