Homemade Twix Bars
Holy crap ya’ll I just used 2lbs of butter while baking over the last 2 days. Just so you know it’s not an equal trade when it comes to poundage. My bootay is approximately 5lbs heavier, and my conscience can only handle so much more…so I am going to have to unload on you. Consider me the co-worker who brings all their goodies in on Monday to fatten you up.
Does anyone have any objections?
Well since you guys seem up for unloading let me get the rest of this week’s confessions off my chest.
I confess that I told Indigo that we were going to get a smoothie if she promised to leave the park like a good girl, she did…and then I drove her straight home. I did however supplement with a Popsicle so I’m not all bad.
I confess that I wiped something off the floor with a sponge..the same sponge we use to wash dishes off. There I said it. I’m gross.
I confess that sometimes I steal time from work, someone has to make sure the Internet is still working right?
I confess that I chew a pack of juicy fruit per day.
I confess that I bought 5 apples for snacks for this week’s lunches, and I have 5 left.
I confess that on Friday I had 2 donuts, and I didn’t go back for seconds – I grabbed 2 from the get go.
I confess that while driving I pretend like I don’t notice that someone is trying to get over into my lane because I really just don’t want to let them in. In all honesty they should have thought about getting over earlier and not at the last freaking moment!!! Not getting a car length ahead of me buddy!!
There now I feel better, the only thing left to do is work out for 2 weeks.
Delight fully borrowed from The Sweet Details
1 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup butter
2 tbsp Corn Syrup
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1-bag of semi-sweet choco chips
In a large bowl, mix together all the base ingredients until crumbly. Press into a 9x9 dish that had been lined with aluminum foil. Be sure to lightly coat foil with cooking spray. Bake at 325 for 20 minutes, or until a nice golden brown.
Combine all filling ingredients into a saucepan and bring to a boil,.reduce heat and stir for 6 minutes . Pour over warm base. Let cool for at least one hour.
Melt chocolate in a double boiler and pour over filling, spread with a spatula and cool to room temperature and then place in your fridge for 4 hours before cutting.
I cut and wrapped them individually in wax paper. Keep these puppies in the fridge for storage. They keep well.
