Homemade Twix bars

My husband is so sweet. I am 7 1/2 months pregnant and one of my common cravings this pregnancy has been Twix candy bars. I could eat one every single day and still want more. My husband came across this recipe in his work newsletter and came home and made it for me. Cute, huh? These are even better than the real thing and you will see why when you see what they are made of.

Homemade Twix Bars

2 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. butter; room temp
1 c. butter
1 c. brown sugar
4 Tbsp. corn syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Crumble crust ingredients together. Pack into 13x9 inch pan that has been sprayed, lined with foil and sprayed again. Bake on 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
Combine caramel ingredients in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil 5 minutes, stirring constantly as it burns easily. Remove from heat. Stir with spoon slowly until it shows signs of thickening. Pour over crust and let cool a little.

Top layer:
Melt approximately 1 cup semi sweet and 1 cup milk chocolate chips with 1 tbsp. oil over low heat or in the microwave. Pour over caramel layer and spread carefully. Chill. Cut into bars.
