Twix Bar Cookies

Twix Cookies

Today’s recipe is honor of my 30th wedding anniversary which was yesterday.  Thanks to all of you who left such kind, sweet comments on yesterday’s post.  You made the day extra special!

If I had to pick, my favorite candy bar would probably be a Twix bar.  In fact it has been my favorite candy bar for a long time.  Over thirty years.

When I ran across a recipe for Twix Bar cookies over at Sprinkle with Flour I knew I had to try them.

Twix Cookies

In fact, I like Twix bars so much that my husband proposed to me with a Twix bar!

We had gone out for a nice romantic dinner and then returned to his cousin’s house where he was living.  No one was home, the lights were dimmed and George Benson was playing on the record player (yes, a record player)

He pulled out a coupon book he had made with construction paper and Twix bars. How sweet is that.  I have kept the coupon book all these years, minus the candy bars of course.  I ate those!

The coupons were for all my favorite things.  An ice cream cone at Baskin Robbins…

There was a coupon for a foot rub, a doughnut from Winchells, tickets to a Kenny Loggins concert, a ride in his car, “the bomb”, and of course a coupon for a twix bar.

The last coupon was for this…

A coupon for a diamond ring and then a coupon that entitled me to the love and devotion of Jim for an extra long time – eternity!

I said yes (but not right away- I made him a wait a little bit but I did eat the Twix bars before I said yes!)

So back to the cookies.

Twix Cookies

Twix Bar cookies are pretty darn good, in fact they are really good.  If you remember my cookie rating system this is a five cookie recipe.  Which means I may have eaten five of them!  They are basically a chocolate chip cookie with out the chocolate chips – you just chop up Twix Bars instead!

Of course a cookie can only be improved by a glass of milk.  Especially when the milk is really cold and you get to drink it with a straw.

Twix Cookies

With a Twix Bar cookie, not only do you get chunks of chocolate in your cookie but also caramel.  Even better!

So in celebration of 30 years of marriage and a life long love affair with Twix Bars – I give you Twix Bar Cookies.  Enjoy!

If you were going to make a cookie with your favorite candy bar, which one would it be??

    What a sweet story! I love that you kept the coupon book – I still have the receipt from me and my hubby’s first date in our scrapbook, and he still has the piece of paper with my phone number on it.
    And that recipe looks delicious! Twix really is the perfect candy – enough crunch, lots of chocolate, and some caramel. Perfection!

    These look wonderful. However, I prefer KitKat to Twix. Anyone else have a preference? They really should taste the same. frederick sallaz, junk candy connoisseur

    Sweet, sweet, sweet story! Always love to hear a good love story! And I have to tell you that the day you posted this was the one day BEFORE my daughter in law’s birthday. Twix is her FAVORITE candy bar. So, I KNEW it was meant for me to make a batch of these to take to her work with some balloons for a surprise. She said the cookies were a hit and disappeared REALLY fast! Thanks for your timely share!

    Its interesting that the Twix don’t (doesn’t?) melt. They melt in my hand when I eat them in the car and then my husband wonders why the steering wheel is sticky :). sounds really yummy, Arlie Jarels

    So I made a batch of these Twix cookies this afternoon expecting a basic chocolate chip-ish cookie with hunks of Twix. My expectations were definitely exceeded! The caramel in the Twix melts then cools forming something along the lines of toffee. The cookies are chewy but the cookie part from the candy bars, plus the butter, makes them a little cripsy at the same time- delightful! And of course, you have the chocolate… Even the dough was beautiful to work with. I loved these cookies so much I had to quickly give half of them away, so I wouldn’t eat them all! This recipe is a keeper, thanks for posting! :)
