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

  2. Margery says:

    Lovely recipe, (although I’m sure they would melt in Atlanta summer heat!)

  3. Erin G says:

    saw this link over at the diaper diaries, and these look GOOD! I’m printing out the info right now! wonder how easy it would be to incorporate caramel?

    • Heather says:

      @Erin G, The part of the recipe that is made in the pan with the butter, brown sugar and corn syrup, etc. Is caramel. That’s what you are making in the sauce pan.

  4. Oh I recently had this recipe, super yum!

  16. Carol says:

    I just made your Twix bars! I’m waiting for the chocolate to set up! I added a little shortening to the chocolate chips (which I doubled) because my daughter doesn’t like peanut butter and chocolate together. I was hoping you wouldn’t mind if I link back to your blog?

  17. Carol says:

    My 13 year old son helped me make these and they turned out really good! My family LOVED THEM! Thanks!

  18. CaseyDeuce says:

    I made these the other night and they’re awesome! The only thing that I wish I did was line the pan with plastic wrap or something so I could easily lift the batch out to cut it up. If its okay with you, I’ll be doing a post on my sites (A Couch With A View & Extraordinary Mothers) and linking back here!

  33. Jan says:

    I just made these! I’m waiting for the chocolate to set, but I’ve already tried one and it’s good. I didn’t think about what power setting to melt the chocolate and peanut butter on, so I just stuck it on high for two minutes… not good results!

  34. Oh wow they look YUM! I am not familiar with those biscuits you used – are the crackers on the bottom sweet, plain or savoury? And what are graham crackers? Sweet plain biscuits? I am wondering if what we call wine biscuits are similar? (they are sweet plain biscuits that are used as crumbs in unbaked slices, etc).
    thanks, Karen

    Made these with my son yesterday. They taste just like the real thing! Thanks so much for this recipe.

  43. These look delicious! I have a different recipe (using saltines) but i think yours look better. I’ll have to try them!

    Thanks!

  44. Janice says:

    For those overseas who don’t have either graham crackers or club crackers in their markets: I’ve searched and found both digestive biscuits and wheatmeal biscuits suggested as alternatives for graham crackers so they must be a sweet crumby type of biscuit. I guess wine biscuits would also do. I couldn’t find a suggested substitute for Club crackers but I found an ingredients list and they also seem to have a sweetness, unlike the more savoury type of crackers normal in New Zealand. Which would make more sense in this recipe.
