With this Homemade Twix Bar recipe you'll love being able to make them yourself! | Tried and Tasty Kirsche and I seem to swap treat recipes more than any other type! These Homemade Twix Bars were another favorite she would bring on her treat day back in the day when we worked together. I remember they would always be cut into perfect rectangles, I think her dad would make them for her to bring (he’s a great cook) and he only approved if they were perfect! Recently I took them to work (they are my favorite test audience) and they raved about them. They weren’t too tough to make, just required a little time between cooling.

Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 1/4 c. flour
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. butter and 2 tbsp.

Caramel

  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. corn syrup
  • 1/2 c. sweetened condensed milk

Chocolate

  • 2 c. milk chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. For the crust, Melt butter. Stir flour and sugar together and add the melted butter. Pat into a 9x9 baking dish. Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes.

  2. For the caramel, Boil ingredients over medium heat for 5 minutes; stirring constantly. Remove from heat and beat until thick. Pour mixture over crust. Cool.

  3. For the chocolate, melt chocolate chips and spread evenly over caramel layer. Cool. Cut into bars.

Recipe Notes

[My 2 Cents]
The recipe says to cool the caramel mixture before adding the chocolate layer. I found the last time I made these that since I let the caramel cool before adding the chocolate, once the chocolate was hardened it separated when I cut them into bars. I think if you add the chocolate while the caramel is still warm it will "fuze" together better and allow for the bars to stay in tact when cutting.
