The 'Homemade Twix Bars' Replicate Mainstream Treats

Cupcakes and Cashmere's 'Homemade Twix Bars' recipe post reinterprets the commercialized chocolate bar. Author Emily Schuman speaks of her love for Halloween events, a direct offshoot of the night's sweet treats.

Schuman found herself disappointed with a Twix bar that she tasted for the first time in what she believed to be years. Her dissatisfaction with the snack prompted her to revamp and update the caramel-filled confection.

These Homemade Twix Bars are a three-in-one mixture of shortbread, sugary syrup and of course, chocolate. The layered combination is thick and rich, and while it has been made in the image of store-bought Twix biscuits, it is more of a gourmet dessert dish than anything else, appropriate for display at formal parties.
