Homemade Salted Caramel Twix Bars

With Christmas coming and the ensuing no holds bar approach I seem to take when it comes to eating and drinking (which frankly isn’t that different from the rest of the year), I thought I’d share this rather marvellous recipe for making your own posh Twix bars which I found on the brilliant blog, A Beautiful Mess. I’ve slightly messed around with the recipe by adding sea salt to the caramel and edible gold leaf to ponce it up a bit and I’m pleased to say they’ve come out rather well especially if you leave them in the fridge for a bit so the caramel goes really chewy (then book yourself a dentist appointment).

Once it’s all smooth and evenly melted, spread the caramel over the shortbread, sprinkle over some coarse sea salt and bung the tray in the fridge overnight.  Once hardened, just turn the caramel covered shortbread out on to a baking tray and with a knife cut the fingers out and trim off any excess caramel. In a bowl over simmering water melt two bars of dark chocolate then carefully dip each biscuit in the chocolate to coat it and allow to cool on a wire rack.  To really show off chuck a bit of edible gold leaf on each one et voila, pretty impressive DIY Twix bars…
