Homemade Twix Bars Recipe

      32 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Unsalted Butter, Softened
  • 1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 11 oz package Kraft Caramel Bits
  • 1 tablespoon Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 12 ounce package Milk Chocolate Morsels

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and powdered sugar for several minutes until well blended. Add in flour, salt, and vanilla. Beat for 2-3 minutes until dough starts to form a ball.
  3. Press dough into a 9-inch-square baking dish lined with parchment paper. Bake for 21-25 minutes, until edges become lightly browned. Remove and cool completely.
  4. While shortbread base is cooling, add caramel bits and whipping cream to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, stir and heat again for an additional 15-30 seconds. Stir until smooth. Pour over cooled (or mostly cooled) shortbread. Spread evenly.
  5. Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for one minute. Stir and heat an additional 30 seconds. Frost the top of the caramel and allow to set (about 30 minutes). Cut into bars and enjoy. It may be easier to refrigerate the bars and cut while slightly firm.
