Make your own Homemade Twix Bars!!
Recently I saw on Pinterest that the King Arthur Flour company pinned a recipe for homemade Twix Bars!!!! This was immediately placed on the top of my ‘Pinterest Pins to test’ list as I love Twix bars. I wondered if anything could really compare to the crunchy cookie mixed with the soft caramel filling and smooth chocolate covering. So, naturally, Cassie and I tried it out.
The recipe from the King Arthur site is broken down by layer: Shortbread bottom, Carmel filling and Chocolate shell. It includes the following basic ingredients that you probably already have most of in your pantry:
- Powdered sugar
- Vanilla extract
- All-Purpose Flour
- Heavy Cream
Most of this I already had on hand (except the Caramel and Heavy Cream) but time is what I was lacking. This homemade twix bars recipe takes a lot of patience!
After you prepare the cookie layer you must let cool for an hour, you then prepare the caramel layer and again let cool for an hour. Next you prepare the chocolate layer and once again let sit.
It took over 3 hours before we could dive in and enjoy these amazing homemade twix bars! Yes 3 hours and yes it was so worth it!!
So why spend over 3 hours preparing and cooking and around $9 bucks for a 9X13 pan of Twix bars? Well…for one homemade is just cooler! Also, they were EVEN BETTER than store bought Twix bars! They were amazing and were QUICKLY gone!
The main difference I noticed was that the cookie was not as crunchy as a Twix bar. However, after it was left out for a day the cookie became more crunchy than soft and was perfect!
