These Twix Cookies are the perfect combination of my favorite candy bar and my favorite cookie!
Twix Bar Cookies
I have been a Twix candy bar fan for many, many years. In fact if I had to pick my favorite candy bar it would be a Twix bar. 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, 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!) I can never eat a Twix bar without thinking about that event!
So back to the cookies.
Twix Bar Cookies
These Twix bar cookies are really good!! I have a personal cookie rating system and this cookie is a five cookie recipe. That 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!
With a Twix Bar cookie, not only do you get chunks of chocolate in your cookie but also caramel. Even better! This year we will be celebrating 37 years of marriage this year and a life long love affair with Twix Bars!
If you were going to make a cookie with your favorite candy bar, which one would it be??

Because of the caramel in the Twix they may stick a bit to the cookie sheet so use a spatula to remove
