These Homemade Twix Bars are a recipe that I have been making for many, many years. In fact, they received Second place at the Indiana State Fair years ago. I grew up in the 4-H community and participated in the fair when I was a young girl. Later on, after I was married, I found my way back to the County and State Fair Open Class Division, baking and crafting for many years. It was a very busy time in my life, but one that brings back great memories.

Not only were these Twix Bars always a hit at the fair, they are always 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.

Homemade Twix Bars

The base of the Twix Bars are Club Crackers, the filling is a caramel mixture made on the stove top with graham crackers, butter, brown sugar, white sugar and milk. Another layer of Club Crackers, then into the refrigerator they go to set up.

The frosting is a combination of milk chocolate chips and peanut butter. Then back into the refrigerator for the frosting to set up.

These No Bake Bar Cookies are perfect for Summer, or really great anytime of year. I usually include them on my Holiday Cookie Trays as well because everyone loves them. And yes, in my opinion, they taste just like a Twix Candy Bar.

Bars
  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.
  5. Immediately top with another layer of Club Crackers, pressing down slightly
  6. Place in fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes
Icing
  1. Combine peanut butter and chocolate chips in small bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, stir well (cook a little longer if needed) and frost crackers

Update: If you live somewhere that you are not able to buy Club Crackers, Mel Cotte shared a recipe with shortbread for the base.

    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.
