Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Everyone knows “Twix” only as a candy bar, packaged & in a pack of two. In today’s post I will show you a sheet baking variant of this. Crispy biscuit, caramel & milk chocolate layered on top of each other & combined on a tray.

The recipe is super simple & does not require a sugar thermometer, as the caramel is not cooked, but only caramel sweets are melted with a little bit cream. Have fun baking!
