Twix Cookies

I had a very pregnant friend over last week and while talking we got the idea to try our hand at a batch of cookies using various kinds of candy. We perused the candy aisle in the grocery store not knowing exactly what we were going to pick. We figured fruity candy was out. It just wouldn’t cook right. We figured chocolate candy would be the best. We picked up some Twix, Milk Duds and Health bars. To tell you the truth I had the highest hope for the Milk Duds but after an afternoon of baking, and snacking, we came to the consensus that the Twix cookies were by far the best cookies of the day. Perhaps the best cookies I have had in a long time.

The Twix candy worked so unbelievably well in this cookie recipe. I was a little unsure when my friend suggested that we buy the Twix candy but I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome. The chocolate melted slightly. The caramel softened. The sweet biscuit part of the cookie added just a slight crunch to the chewy softness of the cookie dough. The only problem that I ran into was that when I simply dropped the cookie dough onto the baking sheet the caramel seemed to ooze out a bit. The way I found to combat this problem is to simply roll the cookies ensuring that all of the Twix pieces were covered. The result was cookies that not only taste great but looked pretty too.

    I have made cookies using Twix bars many times over the last 20 years. They ALWAYS come out delicious! One way I make them is to cut the cookies in half & place the cookie dough around them, other times I’ll cut them into quarters & put those pieces into the dough. And other times I’ll do much like this – crush the Twix bars into pieces & mix it into the dough. But as I said, they are ALWAYS DELICIOUS!
