Holiday Bake-Off ~ Homemade Twix Bars

Baking for the Holidays…my absolute FAVORITE thing to do!! And honestly, it really doesn’t matter which Holiday, I just LOVE to bake! As you probably already know.

Last week I shared with you our fridge make-over, and how we are trying to make better choices with our food and the ingredients that I bake with. So when I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter contacted me about joining them in New York City and enter the Holiday Bake-Off…I was beyond EXCITED!!

Oh…the choices I had to make, I asked my blogging buddies on Skype, I talked to the boys and Doug about what to enter, and I narrowed down the choices to 3…Holiday Cupcakes, Cranberry Bread or Homemade Twix Bars

While I love creating fun cupcakes to share, I just wasn’t sure I would be able to re-create them in the Unilever Test Kitchen like I would at home. And although my Cranberry Bread recipe is delicious, I wasn’t sure with the time limit I have, if I would have enough time to bake it. So, that left the Twix Bars, afterall…they are my #1 visited post…so I knew you all would LOVE them!

And because I love to share, and of course, I’m so excited about heading to New York City again, I decided to make a video for you, so that you can whip up a batch of these Homemade Twix Bars to add to your Holiday cookie platters.

    I would love to try a homemade version and every thing I’ve tried from your site has always been scrumptious. Keep up the delicious work and good luck on your bake off!

  25. Erin says:

    My goodness, those look amazing. I’m wondering if I could substitute graham crackers and not even have to go shopping! :)

    • CupcakeLady says:

      Hi Erin…do you mean substitute graham crackers for the club crackers? Because there are graham crackers in the caramel mixture. I think you could, but they wouldn’t have the same flavor.
      Thanks for stopping by, let me know how they turn out :-)

  26. Corrie says:

    Wow…it’s hard to narrow down holiday baking to just one item :-). I love to create goodies for the holidays. I always make shortbread with Nutella on top and fudge. Although…those Twix bars look yummy…I’ll have to try those too.

    I love to make truffles as well – they looks so amazing and yet are so simple. I am planning a holiday bake day with my Sunday School youth soon – we are all really looking forward to it. We are going to share the fruits of our labor with the elderly members of the church. I can’t wait! :)
