3. Make the chocolate layer.  Melt chocolate at a slow pace over double broiler, stir in milk and honey.  Spread the chocolate over the base (crust) layer.

4. Pour caramel sauce over chocolate layer.  Scatter chopped walnuts over the chocolate.

5. Make the coconut cream.  Mix the coconut cream layer ingredients in a bowl, then pour over the walnuts.

6. Sprinkle the coconut and chocolate chips on the top layer.
