I make these at Christmas time. These use Lorna Doone cookies which are square. If you’re feeling really energetic, you can make a shortbread recipe and cut them into Twix shaped cookies before baking.
(My picture is darker than I'd like. Looks like dark chocolate, but it's milk chocolate.)

Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

35
individual kraft caramels, unwrapped
1/4 c
water or heavy cream
1 box
lorna doone nabisco shortbread cookies (approximately 40)
2
12 oz. bags milk chocolate chips

How to Make "Twix" Bars

Step-by-Step

  • 1Combine the caramels with the water or cream in a small pan and melt over low heat. Place the shortbread cookies side by side on an ungreased cookie sheet on a sheet of waxed paper. Spoon a small amount of caramel onto the top of each cookie, allowing it to cover as much of the top as possible. Refrigerate to set.

    In the meantime, in a double boiler over low heat, melt the chocolate chips. You may also use the microwave for melting the chocolate. Just heat the chips for 1 minute on high, stir, then heat for another minute.

    Remove the cookies from the refrigerator. Rest each one on a fork and dip it into the chocolate. Tap the fork gently on the side of the pan or bowl to knock off any excess chocolate. Then place each one on a sheet of waxed paper and put back in refrigerator to set.

    Store in airtight containers. These keep for several months.

    *Hint: During dipping, if your chocolate begins to get a little thick, use a teaspoon or so of Crisco and mix into it. It will thin out again nicely. Do not use butter, it won't work.
