Unwrapped: Twix Candybars (recipe)

in baking, recipes, unwrapped

Continuing on the junk food binge, I had to make Twix candybars!  Those are one of my favorite candybars so I had to try to recreate them.  It was pretty self-explanatory process so this tutorial is pretty basic.

First thing I did was bake a block of shortbread for the base of the candybar.  You can use any of your favorite shortbread recipes for the base.  I must have done something wrong when I made my shortbread, because it expanded a little in the oven.   Normal shortbread should not spread when baked.   I must have messed up the measurements but it still tasted good! I just cut off the uneven edges:

Then unwrapped a full bag of caramel candies:

Melt in 1 minute intervals in the microwave, stirring every minute (takes about 3 minutes to melt entirely):

Spread evenly over shortbread base and let cool:

Use a pizza cutter or knife to cut into long rectangles:

Dip in melted chocolate and let cool over a wire rack:

Done!!

This were yummy and disappeared pretty quickly at the baby shower I made these for.  Next time I attempt Twix, I think I will try a crispier base. The shortbread was pretty tasty, but it lacked the crunch that I think  real Twix bars have. It was still yummy tho!
