Twix Cookies

Are you craving a delightful treat that combines the irresistible flavors of caramel, chocolate, and soft sugar cookies? Look no further than these homemade Twix Cookies! With just a few simple ingredients and easy-to-follow steps, you can recreate the magic of your favorite candy bar right in your own kitchen.


  • 496 grams Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix (plus package ingredients)
  • 45 soft caramels pieces (about 240 grams, unwrapped)
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (about 1 heaping cup)


  1. Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to 350°F and line one or two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the Dough: Follow the package directions to prepare the sugar cookie dough. Whether you’re using a stand mixer or mixing by hand, ensure the dough is thoroughly combined.
  3. Bake: Drop 1 ½ tablespoon-sized balls of dough onto the prepared cookie sheet(s) and bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden. Allow the cookies to cool on the sheet or a wire rack until safe to transfer.
  4. Prepare the Caramel: In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the unwrapped caramels and heavy cream. Heat the mixture on low heat, stirring consistently until smooth and creamy. This may take up to 10 minutes.
  5. Assemble: Once the cookies are cooled, spoon a generous tablespoon of caramel onto each cookie, spreading it evenly. Be quick, as caramel can harden fast. Refrigerate the cookies to allow the caramel layer to set.
  6. Add the Chocolate: Repeat the same process with the semi-sweet chocolate chips, melting them until smooth. Spread a layer of chocolate over the caramel on each cookie. Refrigerate the cookies again to set the chocolate layer.
  7. Serve and Enjoy: Remove the cookies from the fridge at least 10 minutes before serving to allow the caramel to soften slightly. Then, indulge in the heavenly combination of soft cookie, gooey caramel, and rich chocolate!

Serving Tips:

  1. Presentation: Arrange the Twix Cookies on a serving platter for a visually appealing display. You can drizzle extra melted chocolate on top for an added touch of decadence.
  2. Pairing: Serve these cookies alongside a glass of cold milk, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or a piping hot cup of coffee for the ultimate indulgence.
  3. Garnish: Sprinkle some sea salt flakes or crushed nuts over the chocolate layer for an extra burst of flavor and texture.
  4. Variation: Get creative with the presentation by cutting the cookies into bite-sized pieces or sandwiching them together with extra caramel for a double-layered treat.

Storage Tips:

  1. Refrigeration: Store any leftover Twix Cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator to maintain their freshness and prevent the caramel from becoming too soft. They will keep well for up to 5-7 days.
  2. Freezing: If you want to enjoy these cookies at a later date, you can freeze them for longer storage. Place the cookies in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze until solid. Then, transfer them to a freezer-safe bag or container, separating each layer with parchment paper to prevent sticking. They can be stored in the freezer for up to 2-3 months.
  3. Thawing: When ready to enjoy, simply remove the desired number of cookies from the freezer and let them thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Alternatively, you can let them sit at room temperature for about 15-20 minutes before serving to soften slightly.

By following these serving and storage tips, you can ensure that your homemade Twix Cookies remain fresh, delicious, and ready to enjoy whenever the craving strikes!



  1. Peanut Butter Twist: For a nutty variation, add a dollop of peanut butter on top of the caramel layer before adding the chocolate. The combination of peanut butter, caramel, and chocolate will create an irresistible flavor profile.
  2. Coconut Delight: Sprinkle shredded coconut over the chocolate layer before it sets to add a tropical twist to your Twix Cookies. The coconut adds a delicious crunch and complements the sweetness of the caramel and chocolate.
  3. Salted Caramel Sensation: Enhance the flavor of the caramel layer by sprinkling a pinch of sea salt on top before adding the chocolate. The contrast of salty and sweet flavors will elevate the taste experience of these cookies.
  4. Dark Chocolate Decadence: Substitute the semi-sweet chocolate chips with dark chocolate chips for a richer and more intense chocolate flavor. Dark chocolate lovers will appreciate the bittersweet contrast against the sweet caramel and cookie base.
  5. Nutty Crunch: Incorporate chopped nuts such as almonds, pecans, or hazelnuts into the cookie dough for added texture and flavor. You can also sprinkle chopped nuts on top of the chocolate layer for an extra crunch.
  6. Cookie Sandwiches: Instead of assembling the cookies with layers, sandwich the caramel and chocolate between two sugar cookies to create Twix Cookie sandwiches. Press the edges together gently to seal in the delicious filling.
  7. Mini Twix Bites: Make bite-sized versions of Twix Cookies by using a mini muffin tin to shape the cookie dough into cups. Fill each cup with caramel and chocolate before baking for adorable and irresistible mini treats.

Experiment with these variations to customize your Twix Cookies according to your taste preferences and create a delightful array of flavors for every occasion!



1. Can I use homemade sugar cookie dough instead of a mix? Yes, you can certainly use homemade sugar cookie dough instead of a mix. Just ensure that the dough is of a similar consistency and follow the same baking instructions.

3. Can I make these cookies ahead of time for a special occasion? Yes, you can make these cookies ahead of time. Simply store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator and allow them to come to room temperature before serving.

4. How can I prevent the caramel from sticking to the pan when melting? To prevent the caramel from sticking to the pan when melting, make sure to stir it constantly and use a non-stick saucepan. You can also add a tablespoon of butter or oil to the caramel mixture to help prevent sticking.

5. Can I freeze the cookies after they are assembled? Yes, you can freeze the cookies after they are assembled. Just be sure to wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil before placing them in the freezer to prevent freezer burn.

6. How long will the cookies stay fresh? When stored properly in an airtight container in the refrigerator, the Twix Cookies will stay fresh for 5-7 days. For longer storage, freeze the cookies for up to 2-3 months.

7. Can I omit the caramel and just have chocolate-covered cookies? Yes, you can omit the caramel if desired and simply have chocolate-covered cookies. The chocolate layer will still provide a deliciously rich and indulgent treat.

If using caramel sauce, consider thickening it slightly by heating it on the stove until it reaches a thicker consistency.

9. Can I add other toppings or mix-ins to the cookie dough? Absolutely! Get creative with your Twix Cookies by adding toppings like chopped nuts, sprinkles, or even mini chocolate chips to the cookie dough before baking for added texture and flavor.
