My husband is a LOVER of Twix candy bars. They are his weakness and there is always room for one in his opinion. The other day I decided to combine my love of Chocolate chip cookies, with his love of the Twix bar.
I will warn you not to expect a whole lot of the crunchy shortcake that is found in the bottom layer of the twix, it seems to disappear, but the melted caramel and chocolate make this cookie so delicious!
The only flaw is that the Carmel melts and makes a pretty big mess. I found, after a few pans cooked, that the easiest way to get the cookie to keep it's round form and get it off without it sticking to everything, is to wait till the cookies are completely cool.
2 sticks softened butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 twix bars
Pre-heat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugars till well combined. Add eggs and vanilla. Sift together dry ingredients, and add slowly till just blended. Chop twix bars into small pieces, and add as many chocolate chips as your heart desires.
Place tbs sized balls on baking sheet, leaving plenty of space between (these cookies spread a bit while cooking due to the yummy caramel!)...
Let cool, remove, and enjoy!
