Homemade Twix Bars

2 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. butter; room temp
1 c. butter
1 c. brown sugar
4 Tbsp. corn syrup
1 c. sweetened condensed milk
Crumble crust ingredients together. Pack into 13x9 inch pan that has been sprayed, lined with foil and sprayed again. Bake on 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
Combine caramel ingredients in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil 5 minutes, stirring constantly as it burns easily. Remove from heat. Stir with spoon slowly until it shows signs of thickening. Pour over crust and let cool a little.
Top layer:

Melt approximately 2 c. chocolate chips with 2 tbsp. shortening over low heat or in the microwave. Pour over caramel layer and spread carefully. (I didn’t have quite enough chocolate chips, so I just sprinkled them on the caramel and let them melt then spread them out with a spatula) Chill. Cut into bars.
