"Twix" Bars

Robyn Bruce


I make these at Christmas time. These use Lorna Doone cookies which are square. If you’re feeling really energetic, you can make a shortbread recipe and cut them into Twix shaped cookies before baking.
(My picture is darker than I'd like. Looks like dark chocolate, but it's milk chocolate.)

25 Min


No-Cook or Other


individual kraft caramels, unwrapped
1/4 c
water or heavy cream
1 box
lorna doone nabisco shortbread cookies (approximately 40)
12 oz. bags milk chocolate chips

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine the caramels with the water or cream in a small pan and melt over low heat. Place the shortbread cookies side by side on an ungreased cookie sheet on a sheet of waxed paper. Spoon a small amount of caramel onto the top of each cookie, allowing it to cover as much of the top as possible. Refrigerate to set.

In the meantime, in a double boiler over low heat, melt the chocolate chips. You may also use the microwave for melting the chocolate. Just heat the chips for 1 minute on high, stir, then heat for another minute.

Remove the cookies from the refrigerator. Rest each one on a fork and dip it into the chocolate. Tap the fork gently on the side of the pan or bowl to knock off any excess chocolate. Then place each one on a sheet of waxed paper and put back in refrigerator to set.

Store in airtight containers. These keep for several months.

*Hint: During dipping, if your chocolate begins to get a little thick, use a teaspoon or so of Crisco and mix into it. It will thin out again nicely. Do not use butter, it won't work.
