Homemade Twix Bars are layers of shortbread cookie crust, caramel, and chocolate. They are so much better than storebought Twix candy bars and are so easy to make with just 3 simple steps. 


Cookie Layer:

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup granulated sugar

2/3 cup of butter

Caramel Layer:

2 cups caramel candies such as Kraft, unwrapped

2 tablespoons heavy cream

Chocolate Layer:

2 cups of chocolate chips

1 tablespoon of vegetable or coconut oil


Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a 9×9 pan with parchment paper or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

Combine the flour and sugar in a medium-sized bowl. Then cut the butter in with a pastry cutter or two forks, until it forms a crumb mixture. Then press down into the pan and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

For the caramel layer: Melt the caramel and cream in 30 second intervals in a microwave safe bowl, stirring in between. This can also be done on the stove. Stir until smooth. Pour the caramel over the cooled crust and set in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to chill and firm up.

To make the chocolate layer: Melt the milk or dark chocolate slowly in a double boiler or in the microwave in 30 second intervals. Add a tablespoon of shortening to thin it out if desired. Pour evenly over the chilled caramel layer and spread to cover all of the caramel.


Not WW friendly

Store twix bars in fridge. Caramel becomes really soft if left out.
