If your favorite candy bar is a Twix then you are going to love these shortbread TWIX Cookies!
I pretty much love any candy bar that has caramel in it. I would have to say that my all time favorite is a Milky Way but a Twix candy bar runs a close second. So if you like caramel too, you are going to love these cookies.
The cookies start off with a buttery, flaky shortbread base then topped with caramel and finished with chocolate. I need to warn you that they are a very rich cookie so make sure you have some nice, cold milk on hand! Perfection!
Although these cookies look super decadent, they are easier to make than you think. You can easily use the Kraft wrapped caramels but my favorite caramel of all time is Peter’s Caramel. I get mine at a local cooking store called Gygi’s but you can get yours HERE. It is a large block of caramel but then you will have plenty left over to make these super yummy Apple Pie Caramel Apples!
So treat your caramel-loving self and your family to some of these TWIX Cookies. You will love them!
