Homemade Twix Candy Bars


It’s sugary goodness, party in your mouth, can’t-resist-it’s-so-freakin-good.


Shortbread layer
1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups All-Purpose Flour

Caramel layer
2 cups caramel candies
3 tablespoons half and half

Chocolate layer
2 (16 oz.) packages Chocolate CandiQuik


1) FOR THE CRUST: Preheat your oven to 300°F. Spray a 9″ x 13″ pan lightly with cooking spray (or line with parchment) and set aside.
2) In a medium-sized bowl, beat together the butter, sugar and vanilla. Add the flour. Mix until well combined.
3) Take the dough (it will be thick) and press evenly into the bottom of the pan.
4) Prick the crust all over with a fork. The holes allow the steam to escape and the crust will bake evenly with fewer bubbles.
5) Bake the crust until the edges are golden brown, about 35 to 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and immediately run a knife around the edges to loosen the crust. Set aside to cool completely.
6) FOR THE CARAMEL LAYER: Melt the caramel and cream over low heat in a small saucepan – this takes about 10 minutes. Spread the caramel evenly over the cooled crust and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to chill and firm up.

  1. after the caramel what do you do with the chocolate? Do you cut the caramel sheet in length bars then pour chocolate over. How do you melt chocolate? Do you follow directions on package? Could you help me out and give me some help with this. This will be my first time making this and I want to get it right. This is my daughters favorite candy and I would love to surprise her with it. Thank you

  2. for the Twix bars, what is Chocolate CandiQuik?
