I made these on a craft day in and around felting eggs. They are easy, fast, really good, and they look pretty. I only managed to bring one home for my husband...and there were only 9 of us in the class...see? I knew I needed someone to be watching how many I ate except they were all busy
A blogger friend made these, well they looked so good I had to make them. Thanks Coleen, they were a hit.
Twix Copycat Bar--oven 350˚
1 cup cold butter
2 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
whirl these in a food processor
they will clump up a bit but won't make a "real" dough, that's OK
simply press the crumbles into a 9x13 pan
bake for 20-25 minutes
meanwhile make the caramel filling
in a heavy sauce pan over medium heat cook together:
3/4 cup of butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 Tablespoons corn syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk
cook and stir, always stirring
until it boils
then reduce heat and simmer for 7 minutes, keep stirring don't stop!
remove from heat until cookie base comes out
pour over hot cookie
chill in the fridge until firm
then melt together:
2 cups chocolate chips
1 teaspoon butter
spread over the cooled base and caramel
sprinkle with sea salt
I think next time I make these (the Share Our Strength Food Bloggers Bake Sale) I will cook the caramel a bit longer, I felt it was too soft. Although they held up well in the warm painting class room I think a bit harder would make them perfect.
About the Share Our Strength Food Bloggers Bake Sale. It will be the 17th of April, I hope to have my location nailed down in the next 2 days. I am looking for a few crafty souls, maybe you own an etsy shop, or just like to sew, I would love to gather a few pretty aprons to sell at the bake sale booth. Any ideas? Want to donate? I am open to all ideas! I will also(hopefully) be adding a donate button to the sidebar soon so friends can donate from afar.
and this is what my husband got after I took the picture-HA!
