{Make Your Own TWIX}

I have always loved me a TWIX bar.
I may or may not have eaten one every day for lunch in 7th grade.


So...when I came upon a few different recipes for homemade TWIX bars I knew I had to try them out! I have since made these many times and have tweaked the recipe to my liking.

They really do taste like the real thing...maybe possibly even a little better!

{TWIX BARS}
48 Club Crackers (a few more than one sleeve)
1 c. graham cracker crumbs (one sleeve)

1/3 c. sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. milk
1/2 c. butter
Topping*:
1 1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 c. vanilla baking chips
* Most recipes call for milk chocolate chips. I have tried milk and semi and I thought both were good....but one day all I had was 1/2 a bag of semi, so I decided to add vanilla chips to them, and it turned out to be the perfect combination for my taste buds! I do it this way every time now.
Place one layer of Club Crackers in a lightly greased 13×9 casserole dish.
Use your food processor or blender to make graham cracker crumbs, and pour into a heavy sauce pan. Combine remaining ingredients into pan and heat over medium heat until it comes to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 5 minutes (continue to stir). It should look (and smell) like caramel.
Carefully pour mixture over crackers.
Immediately place another layer of Club Crackers on top, pushing them down into the caramel mixture gently.

 Melt chocolate chips in microwave (on high in 30 minute second increments [thanks to a reader for pointing out that mistake!], stirring between each), and pour on top of crackers.
Refrigerate until cool, and then cut and serve.
Enjoy!

Do you mean 30 second increments?

Looks yummy. :)
