Ingredients: For the Shortbread Cookies:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Caramel Filling:

  • 1 cup caramel candies (about 20 individual candies)
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream

For the Chocolate Coating:

  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening or coconut oil



  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the vanilla extract and mix until well combined.
  4. Gradually add the flour and salt to the butter mixture, mixing until a smooth dough forms.
  5. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Use the back of a fork to gently flatten each ball into a round disc.
  6. Bake the shortbread cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden. Remove from the oven and allow them to cool completely on a wire rack.
  7. While the cookies are cooling, prepare the caramel filling. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the caramel candies and heavy cream. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the caramels are melted and the mixture is smooth.
  8. Once the cookies have cooled, spoon a small amount of the melted caramel onto the center of each cookie.
  9. Place the cookies in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to allow the caramel to set.
  10. While the caramel sets, prepare the chocolate coating. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chopped semi-sweet chocolate and vegetable shortening or coconut oil together in 30-second intervals, stirring until smooth.
  11. Dip each caramel-filled cookie into the melted chocolate, coating it completely. Use a fork to lift the cookie out of the chocolate, allowing any excess chocolate to drip off.
  12. Place the chocolate-coated cookies back onto the parchment-lined baking sheet and allow them to set at room temperature or in the refrigerator until the chocolate is firm.
  13. Once the chocolate has set, serve and enjoy your Homemade Twix Cookies!


Tips for Success:

  • Make sure to use softened butter for the shortbread cookie dough to achieve the right texture.
  • For a smoother caramel filling, you can add an additional tablespoon of heavy cream.
  • To prevent the caramel from sticking to the parchment paper while setting, lightly grease the paper with cooking spray before placing the cookies on it.
  • Store the finished Twix Cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week, or in the refrigerator for longer storage.



  • Peanut Butter Twix Cookies: Add a layer of peanut butter between the shortbread and caramel for a delicious twist on the classic recipe.
  • Dark Chocolate Twix Cookies: Use dark chocolate instead of semi-sweet chocolate for the coating to create a richer and more intense flavor.
  • Almond Twix Cookies: Sprinkle chopped almonds on top of the melted chocolate coating for added crunch and nutty flavor.
