Twix Bars

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

And yes, they taste just like a Twix Candy Bar. These are great anytime of year, but especially for summer since they are No Bake.

    My husband (and two of the kids) LOVE Twix candy bars–if they know I can make them as easily as this, they’ll be asking for them all the time!

    Are those plates Willow Ware? I may inherit a set of them someday…

  7. Beverly says:

    Very interesting, never thought of using these types of crackers for twix!

  11. Kelli says:

    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!

  12. WOW, thanks! These look absolutely amazing! I can’t wait to give them a go.

    Stumbled Upon this and these look so phenomenal. Um, yum.

  17. Shana says:

    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!

  18. Beth says:

    Just wanted to tell you that I made these over Thanksgiving and my family absolutely loved them. I will definitely be making these again.

  19. Joy B says:

    Wow, these WERE great! I made some and took to my sister’s for our belated Thanksgiving. These were a big hit! Thanks for the recipe!!!

  22. Traci says:

    I would think sunflower butter would work in place of the peanut butter. One of my friends has a kid with a peanut allergy and they use sunflower butter instead of peanut butter, just not sure if she’s ever done that in a recipe like this. Good luck!

  23. Jennifer Jo says:

    I stumbled on this recipe, made it, and fell head over heels in love with it. Then I wrote about it. (http://bit.ly/f114N5) Thank you!!!

  24. sophistimom says:

    These look delicious. I love Twix bars. Now I’ll like them even better.

  25. Lisa says:

    thanks for commenting on my blog, on the twix link that I shared! We just made them AGAIN, for the 2nd time this week to take to a family thing today. :) SOO yummy!! I sent lots of people your way, on my FB and my blog!

  26. michelle ruda says:

    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.

  27. wow! thats pretty creative. i may try that this weekends. it looks good too.

  28. Jessica says:

    This is such a cute idea :D I’m going to make these for my siblings when I get home :)

    Did you find a replacement for the Club crackers? I also live in Canada. I can’t think of a buttery cracker.

    Hi, I plan on making these tonight, just a quick question, do you have to use margarine or could you use butter? Thanks! They look delish!

  34. ThisCouponLady says:

    These look tasty; thank you for sharing.
    Question, the recipe calls for crushed Graham Crackers and in the directions (and pictures) it says Club Crackers. Do I need Graham Crackers or just Club Crackers?

  35. Natalie J Vandenberghe says:

    Sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  36. Jenniver says:

    Made these for friends at work they were a big hit. Everyone has been asking me to make them again. Only thing is the second time making them I got the hot caramel mixture on my wrist and now i have a pretty scar that isnt gonna go away

    Made these last night. Soooo yummy! Thanks for a great recipe!

  43. Alicia says:

    Hi there – these look amazing but I see you have asked for graham crackers in the ingredients but everything else says club crackers. Just want to verify which it is!

  44. Katrina says:

    For those outside the USA, maybe try Waverly crackers or captain wafers. Not certain of these, but something similar to a rectangular Ritz cracker with a more buttery flavor. Hope that helps.

    I am definitely trying this recipe! Thank you for sharing.

  45. Angela Hooser says:

    I love Twix Bars and I usually find your recipes wonderful, but i will be using the one provided in the link with the shortbread crust. No offence but caramel Twix bars do not have peanut butter in them. I am extremely allergic. Have you heard of anyone who tried Biscoff spead instead of peanut butter?

  46. Deanna M. says:

    I was confused about the crackers. Do you layer the graham crackers or the club crackers? :/

  47. Vicki says:

    Have made these several times and each crowd served LOVED them! Thanks for sharing. :)

  48. Naomi says:

    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!!
