Better than Twix Bars

We had a fun night out with the girls in our church last week.  Everyone brought something for everyone to try with a copy of the recipe for all the other girls.  It was my type of activity!:)  There were so many great foods, and I'll be sharing some more of them in the next few weeks!

Kyla decided to share and try out these twix bars (cause she loves twix...though not as much as Reeses)!  They were pretty easy to put together (if my 12 year old can do it, YOU CAN!).  And just in case you were wondering, I believe they ARE better than a twix bar!:)

Better than Twix Bars
Pin It
2 sticks (1 cup) butter, at room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
14 oz. bag of caramels, unwrapped
2 1/4 tablespoons heavy cream
2 cups milk chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line a 9 x 13 inch pan with foil and lightly grease it with cooking spray. 

Beat together the butter, sugar and vanilla.  Add the flour and mix.  It will be crumbly.  Press evenly into the bottom of the pan and then prick the crust with a fork.  Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown.

Cool completely.

Melt caramel and cream gently in the microwave until smooth.  30 second intervals is what I like to do, stirring in between.  Pour over the cooled crust and chill for about 15 minutes.

Melt chocolate chips in microwave at 30 second intervals stirring in between until melted and smooth.  Pour over chilled caramel and spread to the edges of the pan.  Chill until the chocolate is set.

Remove from the fridge about 5-10 minutes before cutting.  This will make it a little easier to cut.  Cut into bars and serve.  Store any uneaten bars in an airtight container in the fridge, but let them set out for a few minutes before trying to eat them, or you might lose a tooth!:)
