About a week ago, one of my Facebook friends shared a link to Better Homes and Gardens website that had some really yummy bar recipes. I saw the one for Twixy Shortbread Bars and really couldn't resist adding the ingredients to my shopping list immediately.

When I was pressing the shortbread dough into the pan, I was unsure whether this was going to work or not. I had to wait for it to warm up a bit before it would press down evenly. Fortunately, I didn't need to worry because it baked up exactly as it was supposed to. Adding the layer of dulce de leche took only moments, then the melted chocolate over the top and I could hardly wait for it to set to cut into it... but, I did!
The cookie crust is slightly crisp, not as crisp as in the Twix bar, but enough to give that cookie crunch. With the dulce de leche and chocolate, the overall flavor of the candy bar is all there. This would be a lovely treat to share at a potluck or to share as part of a cookie tray - which is what I'm doing when I take it to work tomorrow!
The recipe can be found HERE on the Better Homes and Garden website... go print it out, you won't be sorry!
