. . . Homemade Caramel Shortbread Candy Bars . . .

Who has heard of Twix candy bars?  Um, of course everyone has.  Well, these are a fantastic homemade version!!!  Oh my goodness run, don't walk, to your kitchen to make these bad boys!

I came across this recipe when I was cleaning out old magazines.  It was in a Kraft Foods magazine which always has the best recipes.  I don't know why I never made this but sure am glad I made it yesterday!  I have had to hide these from my son and husband and really wish I could hide them from myself but I keep remembering where I put them.

These can't be easier and I promise if you have a microwave you can make them and you will be sure to impress your family and friends.

 Homemade Caramel Shortbread Candy Bars

35 square shortbread cookies (Lorna Doone Cookies)
1pkg.  (11 oz.) KRAFT Caramel Bits--these are found in the same spot as chocolate chips
1Tbsp.  milk
6 to 8 ounces milk chocolate chips
Line 13x9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides; spray with cooking spray. Arrange cookies in single layer on bottom of prepared pan. 
Microwave caramel bits and milk in microwaveable bowl on high for 1-1/2 to 2 min. or until bits are completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after each minute. Pour over cookies; spread to completely cover cookies. 
Microwave chocolates in microwaveable bowl for 2 min. or until almost melted, stirring every 30 sec. Stir until chocolates are completely melted, making sure you don't get the chocolate too hot. Pour over caramel layer; spread to completely cover caramel layer. 
Put bars in the fridge for about 2 hours then remove foil and bars from pan.  Remove the foil from the bars then lay the bars on a cutting board and cut into bars.  Serve as soon as possible!

 Using the foil to line the pan is a MUST!  It makes removing and cutting these so easy.

 I cut mine into small bars because they are rich and I didn't want them to be too large.

This recipe that is going to make everyone impressed with your cooking skills!
