Homemade Twix Bar Recipe

 

I think one of my favourite chocolate bars is Twix.  Here’s an easy recipe to make them at home which I truly believe to be tastier than the original.

What You Will Need:

–  1 ½ cups of butter

–   2 cups of flour

–   ½ cup of sugar

–   ½ tsp of salt

–   2 cups of soft caramels (I usually just buy the little squares that you see during Halloween)

–   2 cups of semisweet chocolate

–   3 Tbsp of heavy cream

What You Will Need to do:

1.   Preheat your oven to 350°F.

2.   Line a 13×9 baking pan with aluminium foil and then spray tinfoil with cooking spray.

3.   Prepare the cookie base by placing the butter and sugar in a large bowl.  Mix together with a mixer.  Keep mixing until the contents of the bowl are light and fluffy.

4.   Now add the salt and flour and keep mixing with the mixer.

5.   Next, place the dough on to the bottom of the pan.  Press firmly and evenly.

6.  Bake the cookie base for about 20 minutes or until it is golden brown.

7.   Now place the caramels into a bowl with the 2 Tbsp of heavy cream.  Place the bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time and stir each time.  If the caramel doesn’t seem to soften enough, add more heavy cream.  This microwave process should take between 3-5 minutes.

8.   Pour the caramel over the cookie base and place in the refrigerator for 45 minutes so that the caramel will cool down.

9.   Place the chocolate into a bowl and place in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time and stir each time.  This microwave process should take about 2 minutes.

10.   Take the cookie/caramel part out of the pan and cut up to desired size serving pieces.

11.   With a fork or another type of dipping tool, dip the pieces into the chocolate until they are covered.  Place the dipped bars onto a aluminium foil sheet and place them all in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes so that the chocolate can set.

Enjoy!

There are many things that I love to do. One of those things is crafts! If I could find a job that involved crafts and being able to pay the bills, I'd be all over it! I've also found a great love for cooking and baking in the past few years. Sometimes there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to be able to fully get into cooking and baking to the degree that I would like to. I've also found myself making a HUGE effort to save my family money. I'm still a beginner but I'm surprised at how many different ways I've found to save money, including starting to use coupons! I hope you enjoy all that I'm about to share.
