Day 336: Homemade Twix Bars
Twix are my favorite candies. Who doesn't love them? These homemade Twix bars are layered with shortbread, caramel, and chocolate. Yum!
Today I recreated them, and they tasted so good. Just like the real Twix! You don't need anything special to make these except a stand mixer.
Though it does take some time to make these Twix bars, it's worth it! Make it during the weekend, or bake the shortbread the day before.
The important thing is to chill all the layers thoroughly. Otherwise, you'll have a gooey mess!
Make sure to reserve some extra melted chocolate so you can pipe over the top of the chocolate layer.
|Level:👩🏽🍳👩🏽🍳|Time: 3 hours|Serves: 10|
10 tablespoons butter, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
21 ounces soft caramels (unwrapped)
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 1/4 cup melted chocolate
With an electric mixer, beat the butter with the powdered sugar. Slowly add the flour in. Wrap in a sheet of plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for an hour. Take an 8x8" square pan covered with parchment paper on the bottom and around the sides. Spread the chilled shortbread cookie dough around the pan with your hands. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool for 30 minutes.
Make the caramel layer by placing the caramels and heavy cream in a bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals until you have a thick sauce. Pour over the cooled shortbread. Chill in the freezer for around 45 minutes.
In a medium bowl, add your melted chocolate. Set aside. Cut the Twix bars into 8x2" rectangles. Dip the bars into the melted chocolate. If you have an extra chocolate pipe on top of the chocolate layer. Serve!
