"Twix" Bars

Ingredients:

Shortbread:

2/3 cup butter, softened

1/4 cup sugar

1 1/4 cups flour

Caramel:

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons corn syrup

1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

Chocolate Topping:

2 cups chocolate chips

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

Directions:

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Shortbread:

Mix together sugar and flour by hand.

Cut in the 2/3 cup butter with a fork, knife

(or however you like to cut in butter) until it is evenly crumbly.

Press into the bottom of a 9x9" pan.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until the edges start to turn golden brown.

Remove from oven and let cool.

Caramel:

Combine butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and sweetened condensed milk

in a sauce pan over medium heat.

Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

Once it boils, continue stirring for five more minutes.

Remove from heat and stir for 2-3 more minutes.

Pour the caramel mixture over the cooled shortbread.

Let cool (in the fridge to speed the process up).

Chocolate Topping:

Microwave chocolate chips and vegetable oil for 1 minute.

Remove and stir.

Continue to microwave the chocolate mixture in 15-30 second intervals,

stirring between each one until it is completely smooth.

Pour the chocolate over the caramel layer and let cool until firm.

Enjoy!
