Twix Bars

Simple, easy and creative recipes and projects delivered straight to your inbox.

A little while back I shared with you the recipe and short directions on making Twix Bars, but I never did a step by step for you.

These no-bake Twix Bars were 2nd. place at the Indiana State Fair several years back, and are a HUGE hit everytime I take them to share with people. They are perfect for a potluck, cookout or just a special treat for your family.

  1. Begin my putting a layer of Club Crackers in a 13 x 9 pan, I can fit 24 crackers in
  2. In a saucepan on the stove, combine the caramel filling ingredients
  3. Bring to a boil, continue to stir and boil for approximately 5 minutes (I usually go a little less). The mixture will be caramel like and pull away from the sides of the pan
  4. Pour over the crackers, being very careful, the mixture is extremely hot. Immediately top with another layer of Club Crackers, pressing down slightly

Place in fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes

    Wow! I found a recipe in a British cookbook that my hubby bought for me once for Millionaire’s Slice that looked great so I made them. Can you imagine my joy when it tasted just like a Twix bar!! So, we call them homemade twix bars and they are my brother-in-law’s favorite dessert. Whenever his birthday rolls around, I always know what to give him! My recipe is much different from yours as you make a shortbread crust that bakes, but so delicious…maybe I’ll try yours next summer to compare!

    I made these in a slightly larger pan, so they were thinner. I didn’t have peanut butter chips, so I made them with vanilla & left out the chocolate chips too. (I have people who can’t do chocolate. ) Next time I will get the peanut butter chips to do it right.
    I took them to the Senior Citizen Center dinner & had 2 people ask for the recipe!

    great recipie! i changed the recipie up a bit- extended the chocolate mix (used toffee bits instead of the butterscitch) so i could put a layer of chocolate on the bottom. (i lined my dish with parchment to make for easier cutting) i also used a smaller dish than the recipie recommended so i suggest expanding the caramel mixture also. my house smelled incredible after making these, btw! i highly suugest starting with a layer of chocolate- oh, i used dark chocolate instead of milk and a natural peanut butter with flax seed, and would maybe suggest a light sprinkling of kosher salt on the top layer, i found the end product to be very sweet and was suprised that the club crackers weren’t salty enough.

    I’m from Canada and could not find the social crackers either so I figured I would give social tea biscuits a try and they worked perfectly!! These are so yummy! I made them for a girls night tonight and so far I have tested them for quality…twice…I think I may have to check them again before I go…Thanks so much for this great recipe!!
