Twix Bars

Once again I took these to a party and didn't get a picture... But, they were delish and gone before I could bring them home to get a picture at the end of the night!! I didn't even say what they were, we were in a darkened bar area where you couldn't see very well and people were still walking up to me saying "I love your bars... they taste like a twix!" That's just what I like to hear. They didn't have that crispy crunch of a Twix bar, but they still had that same delish caramel, chocolate taste! hmmmm... salivating a bit over here - I might need to make these again soon! :)

Twix Bars
(recipe found on pinterest via mykitchenescapades.com)

1 cup butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar
2 cups flour
2 1/2 cups caramel squares (you will need to buy 2 bags)
3 tablespoons heavy cream
2 cups milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 300 and spray a 9×13 pan lightly with nonstick spray. In a large bowl, beat the butter until soft, then add the salt, vanilla and sugar. Beat until smooth. Add the flour and carefully combine. Press mixture evenly across the bottom of the pan and bake for about 35 minutes until the edges begin to brown. Set aside to cool completely. Melt caramel squares and cream in a medium microwave safe bowl in the microwave. Heat for 3 minutes on high, stopping to stir after each minute. Spread the melted caramel over the cooled crust and place in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to allow the caramel to cool. In a small microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips for 2 minutes, stopping to stir after the first minute. Spread evenly over the cooled caramel and return the pan to the refrigerator until the chocolate is set.
