- 2 regular (1.79 oz each) TWIX® bars, chopped
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 cup chopped almonds
- 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 3 tbsp butter
- 3 tbsp + 1 tsp honey, divided
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 3/4 cup dulce de leche
- 1 oz dark chocolate (70%), finely chopped
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
1 Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan and line with parchment paper.
2 In a bowl, toss together the oats, almonds and coconut, and set aside.
3 Combine the butter, 1 tbsp honey and the sugar in a small saucepan set over a medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 5 minutes or until butter melts and sugar dissolves.
4 Stir in the vanilla and cinnamon until smooth, then remove from the heat. Toss it with the oat mixture, and fold in half of the chopped TWIX®.
5 Scrape the mixture into your prepared baking pan and press firmly into an even layer.
6 Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool on a rack.
7 Meanwhile, heat the dulce de leche in a small saucepan set over medium heat, stirring constantly, and bring to boil. Boil, stirring, for 5 minutes.
8 Spread the hot dulce de leche over the granola and allow to cool completely.
9 Place the chocolate, coconut oil and remaining honey in a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave on Medium power, stirring every 30 seconds for 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture is smooth and melted.
10 Spread it over caramel layer, then sprinkle with the remaining chopped TWIX® and sea salt.
