Caramel Twix Cookies

Ingredients
1½ cups butter, at room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
¼ cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
For the Caramel
15 ounces of caramel ( I used Kraft )
2 tablespoons evaporated milk
For the Chocolate
1½ cups milk chocolate chips
2 teaspoons shortening
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl fit with a mixer, cream together butter and both sugars. Add vanilla extract and salt. Slowly add flour, 1 cup at a time until incorporated. Mix for an extra minute or two. Roll dough together in a ball and place in the center of a floured surface. Roll dough out to ½ inch thick. With a circle cookie cutter or glass cup, cut out cookies and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake in oven for 14-16 minutes. I baked mine for 14 minutes but do not over bake. Removed and place on a cooling rack.

Once cookies are cool, melt caramel and evaporated milk according to instructions on the bag. On medium heat, melt caramel. Once it starts to melt down, turn down to low and allow to melt. Using a spoon, pour a small spoonful of caramel over the center of the cookie and spread it to the edges with the backside of the spoon. Allow caramel to cool, I placed mine in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes to set.

To make the chocolate topping, melt chocolate in a small microwavable dish. Place chocolate chips and shortening in dish and place in microwave. Melt for about 2 minutes on POWER LEVEL 4, stirring the chocolate in between to smooth out. Chocolate chips will burn if power level is not set to 4. Using a butter knife, spread chocolate over the top of the cooled caramel.
