Just a quick post while I prepare myself for the crazy weekend coming up at work. It’s Reagan’s Centennial on Sunday and the museum’s grand re-opening, so we’re expecting HUGE crowds and lots of business! Here’s a cookie to get you guys through this madness…

My favorite candy bar has and always will be Twix. Something about the caramel, shortbread, and chocolate reel me in every single time. When I saw a recipe that involved a copious amount of candy bars, I bought a huge bag of Twix and went straight to the kitchen. These cookies were wonderful. The Twix’s texture didn’t change much in the oven, but the caramel did feel gooey straight out of the oven. The caramel that did happen to melt out of the cookie hardened a bit, but no harm there! Recipe from Sprinkled with Flour.
  • 2 cups
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 12 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped Twix bars
  1. Preheat oven 325°.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl; set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Beat in egg, yolk, and vanilla until combined.
  4. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Gently stir in the Twix chunks.
  5. Roll the dough into balls and bake on a baking sheet for 15-18 minutes.
  6. Allow the cookies to cool for ten minutes before removing them off the baking sheet.

    Wow! These look delicious. I don’t have Twix bars at home, but I do have a bag of Kit Kats left over from halloween. This will be the perfect recipe to use those in. Thanks!

    I just made these yummy cookies… They are sooooo delish!! Not exaggerating! The cookie dough itself is the best, proportions just right. It only makes aout 1 doz, so double the recipe, because they will go fast! They did in my family! Must try!! Moist, chewy and the caramel in the twix gave it an awesome layer of texture! Not too sweet, only used about 3/4 cup of the brown sugar, it was perfect!

    Disappointed with the recipe – cookie is hard after it cools down, not chewy. I think it’s a waste of Twix! my kids Prefer chocolate chip cookies over these.
