The Easiest Twix Cookie Recipe

1005

Today we’re making the easiest Twix cookie recipe. These are simple cake mix cookies that we’re going to turn into your new favorite treat.

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!
