Twix Truffle Brownies

I am a lover of caramel. Rolo's Milky Ways and Twix are among my favorite candy bars. And dessert wise I usually order anything that has caramel in it. What can I say, it's just too good to pass up. If you throw some chocolate in with that, I'm in. 

After a fantastic 8 day cruise with BP and his dad we had little time to rest. A weekend getaway with our friends for the holiday weekend was planned. And honestly, it couldn't if come at a better time. We had a very stressful week and needed the time with friends away. So of course, it was time to bake. 

Mallowmores were requested by them and I was going to make something else as well because there was going to be 8 of us. And these bars were going to be made. 

Let me just say that this picture doesn't do them any justice. Flat out amazing. Seriously. Amazingly decadent and a tad bit addicting. These were a huge hot with everyone. I know I have a hit on my hands when BP tries something and looks at me and says "These are no good. We shouldn't give them to anyone". And he smiles afterwards - I know he's hooked on it. And this is saying something about how great they are because BP isn't a fan of things with caramel in it. 

So if you are a Twix lover or a lover of anything with caramel in it, these are a must make.  Trust me you will be sure to wow anyone with these.
