Double Chocolate Twix Cookies
Danielle, my partner in #TwoSweetiePies, is a constant source of inspiration, especially since we are both chocolate and caramel fans. I never, ever eat candy, but I have no qualms about adding candies or chopped candy bars to cookies. And how about Twix Bars? Caramel, chocolate, crunchy cookie? Heck, yes. I knew I’d fall head first in love with Hugs & Cookies XOXO’s Twix Cookies.
A Few Baking Tips for Making These Twix Cookies
These cookies started out with your ordinary ingredients: butter, sugar, an egg, vanilla, flour. But a few tablespoons of cocoa powder, chopped, caramelly Twix bars and chocolate chips pushed these over the top. Thank goodness this batch only made a dozen cookies or I might need to break out my stretchy pants this week. Remember, you’ve been warned.
A couple of tips for you, though. I popped my dough balls into the freezer for a few minutes while I tidied the kitchen. My dough was very soft, so even though I used a cookie disher to scoop out the portions, I wanted an even rounder ball of dough. Once chilled for a bit, I could shape them into better spheres by rolling between my palms.
Make sure to used non-stick foil (my preference) or a Silpat or parchment to line your baking sheet as there is bound to be some oozy caramel that escapes during baking. Once the cookies came out of the oven, I quickly used my spatula to press any caramel back towards the cookie. This also works to reshape any crazy amoeba looking cookies. Those happen to us all but can be fixed only while the Twix cookies are still piping hot.
