Patricks Day Twix!

This was a fun recipe I tried last year. 🙂

I had Olivia as a great kitchen helper. She did accidently knock over the short bread crust and it broke into a lot of little pieces.  We still made the pieces into some twix bars!

This year, I fully plan on making some more!

This is my recipe a slight variation of the common short bread mix. I found the basis on an old recipe card. 🙂

1 egg
1 cup of butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
green food color

Mix all ingredients together and use enough food color to get the shade of green desired.

Spread out in a greased cookie sheet.

Poke a ton of holes then bake 14-18 minutes on 300.

Let cool then cover with melted caramel (a bag of caramel squares or a can of homemade).

Cool in fridge.

Cut in squares or logs.

Dip in melted chocolate.

Cool and serve 🙂
