Gooey Caramel Twix Bars

Not your average bar cookie. Crunchy Twix bars, pecans, bittersweet chocolate, and a homemade caramel all set over a buttery shortbread crust.

Notes: Brushing down the sides of the pan will help prevent the caramel from crystallizing. If one area of the pan begins to brown more quickly, gently swirl the pan to evenly distribute the caramel. Take care when adding the butter and cream to the caramel as it may sputter.
