Twix brownies are a fun take on a favorite candy bar. Whip up a batch the next time you’re craving something sweet.
Brownies are my son’s most favorite dessert on the entire planet.
Naturally, I love brownies. A cold, fudgy brownie straight from the fridge is definitely up there on the top tier of my favorite things, right along with Jon Snow (I’m just saying that I wouldn’t mind a shot at bringing him back to life some day), hot pink lipstick (it just makes an ordinary day seem a bit more special), and waking up thinking that it’s time to get up and then realizing I still two more hours to sleep.
If only I could wake up and find a brownie on my nightstand and THEN realize I still had two hours before I had to get up…we might be on to something. Throw in Jon Snow and…well.
I’m just saying that I’m a big fan of winter.
So obviously, I don’t mind making brownies whenever my son requests them. Which is on his birthday, for sleepovers, for Thanksgiving, on Christmas, and almost any ordinary Saturday evening. But sometimes, I’d like to switch them up just a little. Why settle for an ordinary brownie when you can stuff it full of gooey caramel?
We are all huge fans of Twix bars, so I decided to channel that flavor into a super simple and delicious brownie. These fudgy bars do not have actual Twix bars in them, but instead have layers of buttery shortbread cookie, fudgy chocolate brownie, and gooey caramel.
I am not mad about this combination. And the fact that the lovely layers make for an impressive presentation is just a fabulous bonus.
Whip these up the next time you’re baking a batch of brownies. They only take a bit more effort but make an incredible difference in taste!
