Twix Cookies- Cookie, Caramel and CHOCOLATE!

Twix is one of my favorite candy bars. I mean, I don’t like to be picky and choosy.. I’d eat almost any candy bar placed in front of me (besides you, Almond Joy!). If I played favorites, though, Twix and Milky Way would be up there.

And what do those two glorious candy bars have in common? Chocolate and Caramel. Heart eyes for days. SERIOUSLY.



So, I thought, why not use my favorite sugar cookie recipe and make my own?? I honestly felt a little like Lindsay Lohan in the parent trap.. Brilliant, beyond brilliant, idea. ?

While making these, I can’t even tell you how many I ate. An embarrassing number, I assure you. To get that picture perfect bite mark I went through at least 4. I’m all about honesty over here, clearly. It’s a good thing I like running!

How to make Twix Cookie Cups




First, you’ll start out with my favorite sugar cookie dough. Basically, it’s butter, sugar, an egg white, vanilla, flour and baking powder.


Cookie


The finished dough should be soft and pliable. It should be the same consistency as Play-Doh.

Roll the cookie dough out until it is in between 1/4 and 1/2 inch thick. The cookies will not rise at all while baking. However thick they are cut is how thick the finished cookie will be.

I use a 2 1/2 inch round cookie cutter.


Cookie


Bake at 350° for 6-7 minutes, or until puffy and no longer glossy.

Pull out of the oven and let cool completely.




While the cookie cups are cooling, Microwave wrapped caramels and a little milk until melted and then stir until combined.

Carefully spoon about a tsp or so of caramel onto each cookie. Spread the caramel around to almost cover the whole cookie.


Cookie


Toss the pan full of cookies into the fridge for 10 or 15 minutes to help the caramel cool.

While the cookies and caramel are in the fridge, melt the milk chocolate. 

carefully spoon and spread the milk chocolate onto the cooled caramel. You can set back in the fridge to help the chocolate cool quickly or they will set up at room temperature.
