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

    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

    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.
