What You’ll Need

Ingredients for Twix Cookies: powdered sugar, flour, salt, chewy caramels, milk chocolate chips, butter, vanilla, heavy cram, and baking powder.

Ingredient Notes

  • Butter- Use unsalted to control the salt level in these cookies. We’ll soften it to room temperature so it helps the cookie dough mix thoroughly.
  • Chewy caramels- Melted down, these will be the caramel part of the Twix in these cookies.
  • Milk chocolate chips- These sweet and rich chocolate chips create the layer that mimics the Twix chocolate.
  • Powdered sugar- This fine sugar mixes with the butter to create a smooth dough that’s super sweet. This works much better than granulated sugar for these cookies.
  • Flakey salt- This will top the cookies and give them a salty crunch that goes perfectly with the chocolate and caramel.

Add-ins and Substitutions

  • Substitute different chocolates- You can tweak this recipe by using white chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, dark chocolate, or even peanut butter chips instead of the milk chocolate.
  • Add Twix candies- Chop up actual Twix bars and add them to the cookies when the chocolate is still melted so they stick.
  • Substitute gluten-free flour- Make these gluten-free by substituting the all-purpose flour with gluten-free flour, 1:1.
  • Use brown sugar- For a richer flavor because of the molasses, use brown sugar in place of some of the powdered sugar.

How to Make Twix Cookies

  • Cream the butter. In a large bowl, add the softened butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Mix everything with an electric hand mixer on low speed, then pick it up to the highest speed and beat for a total of about 4 minutes.
  • Sift in the dry ingredients. Use a fine-mesh sieve to sift in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix on low until everything is well combined.
Steps to make Twix Cookies: beat the butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla together, then sift in the flour and baking soda, then mix with a spatula.
  • Refrigerate the dough. Now place the cookie dough onto a piece of plastic wrap. Then flatten it to a disk, wrap it, and refrigerate for about 1-2 hours.
  • Roll out the dough. Dust your work surface with a little bit of flour. Then use a rolling pin to roll the chilled dough to 1/2 inch thick.
  • Cut and bake. Cut the cookies out using a 2-inch round cookie cutter. Then bake the cut-out cookies on a parchment-lined baking sheet at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 6-8 minutes.
Steps to make Twix Cookies: wrap and refrigerate the dough, then roll it out and cut the circles, then bake on a cookie sheet.
  • Melt the caramels. Add the caramels and heavy cream to a bowl or saucepan and melt slowly until it’s smooth and runny.
  • Melt the chocolate. Then melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl, also in 20-second intervals with stirring in between.

Pro Tip: You can melt the caramels over the stove on low heat, or if you’re using a bowl just microwave it in 20-second intervals with mixing in between.

Steps to make Twix Cookies: melt the caramel with heavy cream and mix with whisk, then melt the chocolate chips.
  • Add caramel to the cookies. Spoon a dollop of the melted caramel over each cookies.
  • Add chocolate. Then smother the tops of each cookie with melted chocolate after the caramel has cooled. Add a sprinkle of flakey sea salt while the chocolate is still warm and enjoy!

Recipe Tips

  • Start by mixing on low- Cream the butter and sugar together starting on low and increase to high once the powdered sugar is no longer visible to avoid making a mess. Similarly, when adding the flour, start on low.
  • Only bake the cookies for 6-8 minutes- Avoid over-baking the cookies. They are meant to be soft, so 6-8 minutes is the perfect amount of time.
  • Let the caramel be runny- The caramel will solidify when it cools, so it’s okay if it’s on the runny side. This will make it easier to apply to the cookies.
  • Add the salt while the chocolate is melted- Make sure to add the flaky salt before the chocolate solidifies so that it sticks to the cookies.
