There is just something about the Twix candy bar that makes my mouth water. It’s probably the combination of flavors, as well as the combination of textures. After all, who wouldn’t love a candy bar with a cookie crunch in the middle?
If you are also somebody that loves Twix, you will certainly love the Twix cookies that are featured on today’s post. They are amazingly delicious and your entire family will love them. Try them warm out of the oven, they are great!
⅔ cup Unsalted Butter, softened
½ cup sugar
2 Eggs (yolks only)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1½ cups all-purpose flour
14 soft caramel candies (like Kraft Caramels)
3 T. heavy cream
6 ounce milk chocolate chips
To make the shortbread layer: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium sized bowl, combine ⅔ cup butter, sugar, egg yolks and vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour; beat at low speed until well mixed. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or until firm.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Make indentation in center of each cookie with thumb or end of wooden spoon handle. Bake 7-10 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Cool completely.
To make the caramel filling: Melt the caramel and heavy cream in the microwave stirring every 30 seconds until it is fully melted. Using a teaspoon fill each indentation with the caramel.
To make the chocolate drizzle: Melt the chocolate in the microwave stirring 30 seconds at a time until smooth, and scoop into a ziplock bag. Barely snip the corner and drizzle over the cookies.
