Lay shortbread cookies out on a sheet pan or plate. If your shortbread cookies are square, you can cut them into rectangles using a serrated knife. In a pinch, you can also substitute graham crackers.

Unwrap store-bought caramel cube candies and place them in a microwave safe bowl with a splash of milk. Microwave the caramels for about one minute, stir them, then continue microwaving in 30-second intervals until the caramel is smooth. If the caramel seems too thick, add another splash of milk.

Let the caramel cool slightly then spread it over the shortbread cookies. Let the cookies sit at room temperature until the caramel hardens again.

Dip the caramel-topped shortbread cookies in the melted chocolate. Allow the excess chocolate to drip off and then place the homemade Twix bar on waxed paper until the chocolate hardens. Store your Twix candy bars in an air-tight container at room temperature.
