Twix are a delicious chocolate bar candy. If you’ve never had one you are missing out. These Twix cookies are inspired by the tasty combo of flavors found in the iconic candy bar by the same name.

Twix cookies feature (like the candy bar) a cookie with caramel and then chocolate of course! You could sort of re-fabricate this recipe into actual Twix bars but it’s much easier to just dollop the caramel and the chocolate on top of the cookies!

Kitchen Essentials for Making Cake Mix Cookies:

If you are trying to pick out some of the best supplies to stock your kitchen for cake mix recipes and baking in general, these are some of our favorites and must have items.

I like half sheet baking pans that are quality (hello no noisy pops or sloshed cookie dough from twisting), I line my cookie sheets with silicone baking mats. These are a must when doing cake mix recipes which can settle and become thin at lot easier than traditional cookie dough.

Of course mixing bowls, a mixer, spatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!
