Twix cookies

7:00 AM

Twix cookies, how can you go wrong?  The answer is; you can't, at least in my opinion.  I made them for a cookie exchange this Christmas and they were a huge hit.  I was asked for the recipe several times. The recipe was found on Pintrest and tried it out.  After making these my only suggestion is to use more caramel and less chocolate. You can see how it goes for you and decide which you would prefer.  I used Kraft Caramel Bits and melted according to the directions to make the caramel.  They worked very well for me.  Have fun baking these cookies and enjoy.  I hope to see your pictures in the comments below.



INGREDIENTS
  • 1½ cups softened butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 15 oz caramel 
  • 2 cups milk choc chips
  • 2 tsp shortening
  • INSTRUCTIONS
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
    2. Cream butter and sugar together. Add your vanilla, flour and salt. Mix well.
    3. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out to ½ inch thick.
    4. To cut cookies you can use a biscuit cutter or I just used a small glass that was 2 inches wide.
    5. Place round cookies on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
    6. Bake at 350 for 14-16 minutes.
    7. Let cookies cool.
    8. Melt caramel and spread the caramel over the cooled cookies.
    9. Let caramel cool completely.
    10. Add your shortening into the chocolate chips and melt in the microwave. Use a microwave safe bowl and watch so that the chocolate does not burn.
    11. Spread melted chocolate over cooled caramel.
    12. Let chocolate set before serving.
    13. Do not put in the refrigerator as it will discolor the chocolate.
