twix cookies;

What is a twix cookie?  Well, I’m glad you asked!  It’s a shortbread cookie, topped with a sploosh of caramel, and a schmear of chocolate!  These are perfect “tea-time” cookies.  I don’t know what makes me say that, except that I think it’s the shortbread that makes me think of tea. Though word around the block is that these are pretty amazing dipped in coffee too!

Cutting out Shortbread for Twix Cookies @ tipsychocochip.com

This recipe makes a solid ton of cookies, which is perfect for when you’ve got a busy week and want one chunk of time to spread out deliciousness across various events.  That’s what I did–I made the batch, and then some went with me to JMU for an all-day leadership workshop, and then more went into work to share!  These would be pretty good for a bake sale too.

Caramel for Twix Cookies @ tipsychocochip.com

I will note that the shortbread is pretty crumbly!  So plate or napkin is highly suggested.  At least the caramel helps keep the cookie together. I also think I make mine a little too thin and making a thicker cookie could help their robustness.

I really like the additional sweetness that the caramel and chocolate add.  I like shortbread, but only can handle small amounts, so the added sweetness really amps these cookies to top notch!  Besides, who doesn’t love a twix bar?
