My young women love their treats! Who does not love a Twix candy bar?! Everyone loves them. Simply everyone. Matt and I, decided that these would be a great treat for the girls and mothers. They were a hit. The girls told me “they taste just like Twixies,” they crack me up! Anyways, these are incredibly amazing, you need to go home and make them now! 

Ingredients
Shortbread cookies
1 3/4 cups butter, softened
1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Caramel
1 stick of butter
1 can of Eagle brand sweet and condensed milk
1 can of brown sugar (use the can of Eagle brand to measure)
1 can Karo Syrup

Chocolate layer
2 cups Guitiarrd Milk chocolate chips
2 teaspoons shortening

Directions
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. In the kitchen aid cream butter and sugar together. Add vanilla, flour, and salt until it is combined.
3. Dump dough onto a lightly floured surface.
4.  Roll dough out to 1/4 inch thick.
5. With a 2 1/2 inch round cookie cutter, cut out cookies and place on a greased cookie sheet.

  3. I think I know what I'm bringing to my next potluck! I've found for you the one person who doesn't like Twix: my daughter M. She can't stand caramel. The one time she sent something back in a restaurant was when she received a bowl of ice cream with caramel sauce as a garnish. She quite literally gagged at the sight.
