Buttery Shortbread, melt-in-your-mouth Caramel, and luscious Chocolate. If Twix candy bars are your thing, you will absolutely love these cookies!
Happy Friday to you. This weekend will be the first one in several weeks that we don’t have anything special planned. And I am more than okay with that. Don’t get me wrong, I am always up for an adventure, an experience or a spontaneous trip, but getting to spend 2 full days with no plans and my favorite person, is giving me all the excited feels. In preparation, I decided to whip up a batch of cookies that would help us to properly relax and enjoy the days ahead.
Over the top cookies inspired by Twix candy bars, to be exact. If you have a thing for homemade shortbread cookies, chewy caramel, and a thick layer of chocolate, then I don’t think you need much convincing to try them for yourself.
An easy recipe for Twix Bars. Dare I say they’re better than the actual candy bar?!
It feels like an eternity since I’ve last made you a pan of bars. Almost 3 weeks, which is about 2 1/2 weeks too long, if you live in my world. Whenever I develop a craving for some fabulous bars I am convinced that all of you must feel the same way. I don’t even know where this blog would be without them and have an inkling that most of you amazing readers are big fans as well. Immaright?!
Also, candy. I find it much easier to exclude candy I don’t like instead trying to make that difficult, gut-wrenching and basically impossible decision as to which is my favorite. Almond Joy, 3 Musketeers and Babe Ruth are the ones I could do without. There are just too many that are that much better and steal the show every time. Twix candy bars definitely rank high on my list. And because they’re the perfect thing to recreate, I couldn’t wait to make something that might be even better than the real thing – an entire pan filled with chocolaty, caramelly, and buttery goodness.

Twix Chex Mix inspired and packed with the amazing flavors of one of my favorite candy bars. This stuff is enticing, so consider yourself warned.
We made it through another week, friends! Happy Friday. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you probably know how much I love to celebrate Fridays by now. The anticipation of the weekend and all the fun things ahead get me every time.
And what says Friday night more than a good snack mix? Whether you’re getting together with friends and need a snack to share or you’re settling in for a movie night, Twix Chex Mix may just be the ticket.
I happen to adore Chex Mix in any shape or form. I fondly remember a few years back, when we were just married for a couple of months, my husband and I would load up on bag after bag of all the different kinds available during our weekly grocery shopping trip.
Those were the days when I had no idea how to cook in any way, shape or form and Chex Mix tasted like the best thing on earth.
We always wound up fighting over the Cheddar variety, right after there was no more Turtle Chex Mix to be found.
Now imagine my excitement when I finally figured out how easy it is to make your own. Continue reading →
