Homemade Twix Bars

So my neighbor and mom's good friend was turning 45 and our other friend was throwing her a surprise party. It was a small party - each guest brought something for the party. So I brought homemade Twix bars. I was nervous that no one would like them....I always get nervous. Well at the end of the party there was only 1 left over!!
These are promised to be a big hit and the best thing is I made the recipe up!

15oz semi sweet milk chocolate chips
4 tbsp. margarine or butter
8oz caramel (can be found in the ice cream topping aisle)
16 short bread long cookies (found in cookie aisle)

1. Dip each short bread cookie in the caramel, covering the cookie completely.
2. Place each cookie covered caramel on waxed paper
3. Put in fridge for 1-2 hours
4. Melt the chocolate with the butter in a double broiler
5. Dip each caramel covered cookie in the melted creamy chocolate (make sure the cookie is 100% covered)
6. Place it back on the waxed paper and put back in fridge for at least 2 hours (preferably 3-4 hours)
7. Before serving take out and let get to room temperature (about 30 minutes)

It may sound time consuming but it's fun and they taste much better than the store bought kind.
