Yield: 1 Servings
|35 \N||Unwrapped Kraft caramels|
|1 \N||Box Nabisco Lorna Doone shortbread Cookies; (40)|
|2 \N||Bags milk chocolate chips; (12 oz)|
Combine the caramels with the water in small pan & melt over low heat.
Place the shortbread cookies side by side on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Spoon a dab of caramel onto each cookie. Then place all the cookies in the fridge till the caramel firms up.
In the meantime, in a double boiler over low heat, melt the chocolate chips. You may also use the micro for melting the chocolate. Just zap the chips for 1 minute on high, stir, then zap 'em for another minute. Remove the cookies from the fridge. Rest each one on a fork and dip it into the chocolate. Tap the fork on the side of the pan or bowl to knock off any excess chocolate. Then place each one on a sheet of waxed paper and let them cool at room temperature (65-70 degrees F.).This could take several hours, but the bars will set best this way. If you want to speed up the process, put the candy in the fridge for 30 minutes only.Makes 40 bars To make Peanut Butter Twix Bars...Substitute 1 cup of peanut butter sweetened with ½ cut powdered sugar for the caramels. The peanut-butter mixture will be of a consistency that allows you to spread it on the shortbread cookies with your fingers. Follow the rest of the directions exactly.
