I modified this using another recipe that I had wanted to try, and they came out great!! I used 1 stick of butter, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1 c of flour for the shortbread. Make sure this layer is completely cool before topping with caramel. I cheated the caramel layer and melted 1 14oz bag of caramels with 2 T of cream. I let this cool and then set completely (about an hour). Then, to solve the problem of the shortbread and caramel separating, i cut my pan in half and then sliced into about 1" piece logs and dipped them in the melted chocolate. I got about 20 bars from this recipe. These were a pretty good recplication of twix bars, and because i cut back on the amount of butter in the shortbread, I think they had just the right texture. They impressed my family.
