I love a good Twix just like anyone I know, but have you tried making them at home? Twix cookies are my absolute favorite dessert and they are not to difficult to make!
I should never make these unless I have people to give them all away to. I think I gave away 12 and then ate the rest which is not good for me at all. I have no idea how many calories are in each of these, but I’m betting it’s a lot. These are very rich and you can only eat one, maybe two at a time.
- 1 3/4 cups butter, softened
- 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 cups flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 can Eagle brand sweet and condensed milk
- 1 can of brown sugar (using the Eagle brand can to measure)
- 1 can Karo syrup
- Your favorite bag of Milk Chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- In the kitchen aid cream butter and sugar together. Add vanilla, flour, and salt until it is combined.
- Dump dough onto a lightly floured surface. Roll dough out to 1/4 inch thick.
- With a 2 1/2 inch round cookie cutter, cut out cookies and place on a greased cookie sheet.
- Bake for 14-16 minutes. While baking, in a sauce pan combine all the ingredients for the caramel. Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook until you can drop in ice water and it forms a firm ball of caramel. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
- After the cookies cooled, spread slightly warm caramel on top.
- Microwave chocolate chips for 30 sec and then stir. Repeat until the chocolate stirs smooth.
- Top the caramel with the chocolate. Allow to cool completely!
