Homemade Twix Cookies
I'm sure you must have had a lot of Twix cookies over the years. But it's so fun to make these at home that you really won't feel the need to buy a pack of Twix cookies again.
Twix cookies are really all-season favorite cookies. They are just so good. A shortbread cookie topped with a caramel layer and a chocolate layer is definitely my dream cookies!
Whenever I make these cookies at home, they don't last an hour! Usually, I am left with the last piece. These taste so good that you really can't blame a kid for this.
Also, baking these Twix cookies is really very easy. It's just making super simple shortbread cookies that are topped with caramel and chocolate.
During the summer season, I like to make ice cream sandwiches with these Twix cookies. It's so easy! Just add a spoonful of vanilla or your favorite flavor of ice cream in between two cookies and freeze it for like an hour before you enjoy these! It's just so easy and so good, just like my Oreo Ice Cream Sandwich cookies.
How to make Twix Cookies at home
Well, aking these Twix cookies at home is really easy. There are just 3 major steps that go into baking these Twix Cookies at home.
1st Step - Making the dough. So to make the dough you combine butter with sugar, vanilla, and flour. Just 4 of your basic cookie dough ingredients. You can make the dough in the dough maker. If making with your hands, first beat the sugar and butter until creamy and then add the vanilla and flour to it. Try to combine everything and bring everything to a circle. Do not add water or milk while kneading the dough. If you want you can add some more melted butter. But adding any other liquid to help you knead the dough will really affect the taste later.
2nd Step - Next is chilling the dough for 20-30 minutes. Chill it covered in the freezer. Chilling the dough will hold the butter in the dough together making your dough extra soft and that'll account for crispy and crunchy buttery cookies later.
Once the dough is ready, roll it out on a silicone mat or a floured surface. I find rolling the dough on a silicone mat especially helpful because that way the dough doesn't stick to the surface at all and it's easy to pick up the cookies. Use a cookie cutter of 2-3 inches size and cut out your cookies. Pick up the cookies using an offset spatula or a sharp knife and place them in the lined baking tray. I have used a 9 by 11 cookie baking tray. Bake your cookies at 350F or 180C for 13-14 minutes or until it starts to turn golden brown from the sides.
3rd Step - The last step is topping. Get the cookies to cool down to room temperature. First drizzle the caramel sauce, freeze for 10 minutes and then drizzle the chocolate sauce and freeze for another 10 minutes. And you're done!
If you do not have caramel sauce at home, melt about 10 ounces of Caramel with some evaporated milk in a pan. Stit it continuously until it thickens and smoothens. Cool it and then spoon over your cookies.
If you don't have chocolate sauce at home, melt about 1/2 cup of unsweetened dark chocolate chips with some water in a pan. Stir continuously. Spoon it over the frozen caramel layer.
So, that's how you make these amazing Twix cookies at home. Hope you loved this recipe! Tag me with #recipemagik on Instagram if you happen to make this recipe.
