If you like Twix candy bars, you are going to love this Twix Cookies recipe! This gem of a recipe comes to us from What Megan's Making, from none other than Megan, the curator of this fantastic food blog. Megan says that these cookies are just like little mini Twix chocolate bars, with all of the layers of sweetness, the soft, light sugar cookie on the bottom, the creamy caramel in the middle and the scrumptious chocolate on the top! You will feel like you have made an even better version of the candy bar because you have made it at home, fresh from your own kitchen. Isn't that always a good feeling? You can be in quality control of the ingredients in this recipe, and use all of the best items.
These cookies are not just sweet looking and sweet tasting, they are also extremely easy to bake, and even easier to munch on! The layers are each on their own such simple recipes to make. The cookie layer is just a simple shortbread recipe that you whip up and bake, you can even press a thumbprint into or use the end of a wooden spoon to press an indentation into, before you bake them. This creates a nice indentation, a perfect little pool for all of the caramel to rest in. The caramel itself is very easy to make, and then you spread it onto the cookie. The chocolate layer is just chocolate chips melted to make a sauce and then drizzled on top! Megan says that the spreading can be the toughest part of making this recipe, but that it is so worth it once you taste one of the little bite sized chocolate bars.
You will be quite impressed with how much they taste like an actual Twix chocolate bar! Twix chocolate bars were first brought to America from Britain in 1979, but they were first made in 1967. The candy bar has become extremely popular in the United States and in Canada over the years, and special flavours have also been introduced in more recent years. You can find speciality flavours like fudge, cinnamon, triple chocolate and even peanut butter flavoured Twix bars! And now these awesome Twix cookies! These would be wonderful to make for a bake sale, can you imagine how quickly they would sell? Especially to kids. Or, this recipe would be easy enough to make and bring to a party or a gathering where food is involved. After all, everyone likes a nice, sweet treat to imbibe in after a savoury meal.
