Nutella Twix Squares

This past weekend I had myself what I call a “Lazy Sunday”.  I know there are a few of you who have the same Lazy Sunday as I do.  Lazy Sunday is my favorite day, because it’s a day where I stay in my PJs and do absolutely nothing and it’s wonderful!

Although, I did cheat a little this past Sunday and didn’t have a complete Lazy Sunday.  I did have to go grocery and get a Christmas tree, so there was a point during the day where I had to get out of my favorite holey sweats and put on non-holey sweats.

And when I got home I got inspired to bake something.  Actually, I didn’t have to bake, it was more like slapping a few things together and calling it a treat.  So, this is what I would consider a “Lazy Treat”, even the pictures were lazy (they were taken on my phone using a fancy app).

I came up with an idea to make Nutella Twix Squares…

and than I thought how about PB Twix.

So, I went with both.  It’s a win-win situation!

So I took some shortbread cookies and spread Nutella and PB on them.

Then I put some creamy caramel on it.

Dipped them in chocolate.

And while I was waiting for it to set Parrish asked that I take a picture of his new gloves that match his sweatshirt.

This is what they look like when they are ready to eat.

And this is what they look like when you cut them in half and take a picture with your crappy phone camera.

It doesn’t matter what the picture looks like because the end result tasted yummy!

Nutella Twix Squares

Ingredients:

About 40 shortbread cookies (I used Lorna Doone cookies)
Nutella or Creamy Peanut Butter
1 1/2 cups of Kraft Caramel Bits
1/4 cup of water
24 oz. semi-sweet chocolate

Directions:

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper and line up the cookies side by side. Spread Nutella/Peanut Butter over each cookie.

Over a medium-low heat mix the caramel bits and water until smooth. Once the caramel is smooth pour a spoonful over each cookie. Place in the refrigerator to set (about 30 mins).

While the cookies are setting melt the chocolate until smooth. Remove the cookies from the fridge and place a cookie on a fork and gently dip each cookie in the chocolate until fully covered. Gently tap the fork to remove any excess chocolate and place on the wax covered baking sheet to set.

Let it set for a few hours and enjoy!
