TWIX BARS...YUP, HOMEMADE!!!!!

HAVE YOU MADE HOMEMADE TWIX BARS YET? NO???? REALLY??? HURRY, HURRY!!! I AM REPOSTING THE RECIPE AS I HAVE HAD SEVERAL REQUESTS FOR IT RECENTLY!!! I NAMED THESE "MAKES TWIX TASTE PATHETIC" BARS BECAUSE THESE ARE EVEN BETTER!!!!!!!






Shortbread layer
2 sticks salted butter, at room temperature
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour

Caramel layer
20 ounces Kraft Caramels, unwrapped of co
urse! (about 1 1/2 bags)
3 tablespoons heavy cream

Chocolate layer
18 ounces HERSHEY milk chocolate BARS, melted

Directions1) FOR THE CRUST: Preheat your oven to 300°F. Line 9" x 13" pan with nonstick foil.

2) In a bowl, beat together the butter, sugar and vanilla. Add the flour. Mix till it comes together.

3) Press it evenly into the pan.
4) Prick the crust a
ll over with a fork.

5) Bake 35-45 mins until the crust is lightly golden brown on top. Remove from the oven and immediately run a knife around the edges to loosen the crust. Cool completely.
6) FOR THE CARAMEL LAYER: Melt the caramel and cream over low heat in a small saucepan. Pour the caramel over the cooled crust and set in the fridge
for 30 minutes to chill and firm up.

OPTION 1 FOR THE CHOCOLATE LAYER (EASIEST OPTION): Melt the chocolate slowly in the microwave and p
our evenly over the chilled caramel layer and spread to coverall of the caramel. Return to the fridge until the chocolate is well set. Cut into bars or squares. It's best to store these bars in the refrigerator but take out a few mins before serving to soften.

OPTION 2 FOR T
HE CHOCOLATE LAYER (BIT MORE TIME CONSUMING BUT YUMMY): Cut into bars once the caramel has chilled and dip each bar individually into the melted chocolate. Lay on wax paper in fridge until set.
