Ingredients

  • For the Shortbread Cookies:
  • 1 cup 1 (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 granulated sugar

  • 2 cups 2 all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon 1/4 salt

  • 1 teaspoon 1 pure vanilla extract

  • For the Caramel and Chocolate Topping:
  • 1 cup 1 caramel candies, unwrapped (about 20-24 caramels)

  • 2 tablespoons 2 heavy cream

  • 1 cup 1 milk chocolate chips or chopped milk chocolate

Directions

  • In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened unsalted butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, which should take about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the pure vanilla extract and mix until well incorporated.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour and salt.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter-sugar mixture, mixing until a soft dough forms. Be careful not to overmix.
  • Divide the cookie dough in half and shape each half into a rectangular log, about 1.5 inches in diameter.
  • Wrap each log tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or until firm.
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
  • Slice the chilled cookie dough logs into approximately 1/2-inch thick rounds.
  • Place the cookie rounds on the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between them, as they will spread during baking.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies turn golden brown.
  • Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • While the cookies are cooling, prepare the caramel topping. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the unwrapped caramel candies and heavy cream. Microwave in 20-30 second intervals, stirring each time, until the caramel is completely melted and smooth.
  • Once the cookies have cooled, spread a layer of the melted caramel over the top of each cookie.
  • In a separate microwave-safe bowl, melt the milk chocolate chips or chopped milk chocolate in 20-30 second intervals, stirring each time until smooth.
  • Drizzle the melted chocolate over the caramel-topped cookies.
  • Allow the caramel and chocolate to set for about 30 minutes, or until they are firm.
  • Once set, your homemade Twix Cookies are ready to be enjoyed.
