A quick change of pace and taste buds can only mean one thing: the holiday season is upon us. These chocolate + sea salt caramel slices might look a bit familiar if you happened to run into this recipe for twix bars a few weeks back. After those turned out to be such a hit in our home and on the blog, I figured I could rework another recipe out of them.
