One of my all time favorite candies, maybe even more so than Snickers, Twix is a unique candy ‘bar’ that started in the UK in 1967, and will be around for another century because the love for crunchy cookies topped with caramel and chocolate is not limited to a single generation.
There are probably 50 different variations that have been introduced over the years, including peanut butter, fudge, cookies & cream, gingerbread, dark chocolate, white chocolate, coffee, mint, and coconut flavors. However, the original remains the best (in my opinion)
Here are 21 different unique recipes that use Twix as their inspiration. There are cakes, brownies, milkshakes, shots, pies, and even raw, vegan, and gluten free versions.
Twix Cookie Cups
Labeled as the “best and easiest” recipe on her website, Becky starts us off with high expectations for her Twix cookie cups recipe. Using real caramel chews, milk chocolate, and a sugar cookie crust, I think she might be right! I’m seriously hungry right now so it’s really hard to say much else other than these look delicious.

Homemade Twix bars
Researching this recipe I came across a lot of homemade Twix recipes but none came close to looking like the original as much as these did. I especially loved that she made her own cookie base (although I won’t blame you for cheating and buying something). If you want to make everything from scratch though, this is the way to go. See how she did it at lovecommacake.com and take a moment to admire the chocolatey goodness in the first picture on the page.
Caramel Twix Cookies
This recipe uses homemade shortbread cookies instead of sugar cookies, but the principle is similar. In fact, spelled out like this, you could probably whip up some amazing Twix cookies with just about any type of cookie, some caramel chews, and melted chocolate ships. Of course, making it from scratch isn’t that hard and more fun anyway. See how Jessica does it at swankyrecipes.com.
