Twix Cookies Recipe

Is it cookie? Is it a candy bar? Honestly, this tasty recipe for Twix cookies is a little bit of both. If you’re in the mood for chocolatey caramel goodness, thesetwix caramel cookies are just for you.

Twix Cookies

Chances are you have everything in your pantry to make these easy Twix cookies with the exception of melting chocolate and caramel. You could easily substitute chocolate chips for the melted chocolate for a similar taste. Making a batch of homemade caramel is also a possibility and probably easier than you think!

Who invented twix

Twix, originally invented by Forrest Mars Sr. and the Mars Company Ltd. in the UK in 1967, made its way to several other countries by 1979. The name means “twin biscuits,” which totally makes sense. Through the years, there have been lots of different spinoff products of the original Twix. Most of these limited editions were introduced in the UK and various European locations.

There was a chocolate and orange version, a coffee version and a mint version… just to name a few. Unfortunately, all of these flavours have been “retired” and there’s no news of them becoming available any time soon.

Butter versus margarine

Let’s talk about butter. I totally recommend using real butter over margarine any day. The taste of your finished product (especially baked goods) is so much better. As a less expensive alternative, use half butter and half margarine.

How to make powdered sugar at home

Here’s another cool baking tip. Why purchase powdered sugar when you can make your own at home, quickly and easily? Simply process granulated sugar in a blender or food processor. That’s all there is to it! The more refined the granulated sugar, the fluffier the powdered sugar.
