Homemade Twix-like Candy Bars

From caramel apples to candy bars! I had some leftover melted caramel from making caramel apples. I couldn’t waste perfectly yummy caramel; but what could I do with it? I thought for a minute and then remembered something I had made years ago. Homemade Twix bars! The recipe called for Lorna Doone shortbread cookies, but I don’t buy packaged baked goods and I didn’t feel like making shortbread. I wanted a more immediate reward! So, I took the dry ingredients to my white cake recipe and added vanilla and a stick of melted butter. Once combined, I pressed it into a pan and baked it off at 350 for 12-15 minutes. After it came out of the oven, and cooled, I added the leftover caramel on top and popped it into the fridge.

Once it had set up, I cut into bars and dipped them into melted milk chocolate. I could hardly wait for the chocolate to set up! Oh so good!
