In my family the holiday season is all about the COOKIES! Baking cookies is a full weekend endeavor, from the classic Shortbread and Sugar Cookies, to Gingerbread and Macarons, batch after batch of cookies are made. I wanted to share my family’s favourite cookies which are a play on the classic Twix chocolate bar – Twix Cookies!

Get your aprons out; and gather the ingredients to bake up these to die for cookies! Beware; flour is bound to end up on the floor and even on a nose or two! You can’t forget how impressed holiday guests and your families will be when you bring these cookies to the next gathering!

Twix Cookies


  • 1½ cups softened butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¾ cups caramel
  • 2 cups milk choc chips
  • 2 tsp shortening


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Cream butter and sugar together. Add your vanilla, flour and salt. Mix well.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out to ½ inch thick.
  4. To cut cookies you can use a biscuit cutter or I just used a small glass that was 2 inches wide.
  5. Place round cookies on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 350 for 14-16 minutes.
  7. Let cookies cool.
  8. Melt caramel and spread the caramel over the cooled cookies.
  9. Let caramel cool completely.
  10. Add your shortening into the chocolate chips and melt in the microwave. Use a microwave safe bowl and watch so that the chocolate does not burn.
  11. Spread or drizzle melted chocolate over cooled caramel.
  12. Let chocolate set before serving.
  13. Do not put in the refrigerator as it will discolor the chocolate.

These cookies will be a hit at any gathering!
