Twix Cookies


  • 1-1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 3 bags (6.25 ounces each) sugar cookie mix
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 50 caramels, unwrapped
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1-1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the butter, sugar cookie mixes and water, using a hand mixer to incorporate it into a dough.
  3. Roll the dough into balls (about 1-1/2 tablespoons each) and place on a non-stick baking sheet.
  4. Bake in batches in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes; the cookies should be flattened and have just a hint of golden color.
  5. Once the cookies have cooled slightly, move them to a wire rack and allow them to cool to room temperature.
  6. Meanwhile, in a double boiler, add the caramels and heavy cream and heat on medium-low until melted and smooth (this could take a while with this amount of caramel).
  7. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of caramel onto each cookie and spread it around to cover the entire top.
  8. Place the cookies into the refrigerator for about 15-20 minutes or so until the caramel has cooled and become firm.
  9. Meanwhile, in the same double boiler (cleaned or using a different top vessel), heat the chocolate chips over medium-low until melted and smooth.
  10. Spoon a tablespoon of chocolate over the hardened caramel, spreading with the back of the spoon as needed.
  11. Place the cookies back into the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes to cool and set.
  12. Enjoy with a nice cold glass of milk.
