Two Peas and Their Pod

Twix Caramel Brownies

Last week we hosted a barbeque for our good family friends. I couldn’t decide what dessert to make, so I made three:) I wanted to make sure there was something for everyone to enjoy, plus, you all know I love an excuse to bake:) I decided to make brownies, because brownies are always a hit at parties. I didn’t want to make plain chocolate brownies so I jazzed them up with Twix candy bars and caramel. I think that was the best decision I have made in a long time! These Twix Caramel Brownies take brownies to a whole new level of deliciousness.

Josh and I both love Twix candy bars. Crispy crunchy cookie, smooth creamy chocolate, and chewy caramel-what’s not to love? We don’t buy or eat candy bars very often, but I had to splurge for these brownies. I chopped up the candy bars into chunks. It was hard not to eat them right then and there, but I knew the brownies would be worth the wait:)

I stirred the Twix candy bar chunks into the rich, chocolaty brownie batter. Again, I wanted to just eat the brownie batter and Twix chunks with a big spoon, but I refrained. It sure was hard though!

I poured the batter into the pan and drizzled caramel ice cream topping evenly over the brownies. Next, I took a toothpick and swirled the caramel into the brownie batter. The brownies baked for about 40 minutes and that was the longest 40 minutes of my life. I love the smell of brownies baking and my chocolate craving was through the roof at this point. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one of these decadent brownies.

After I impatiently let the brownies cool, I cut them into squares and placed them on a platter for the barbeque. I was going to wait until the guests arrived to try one, but temptation got the best of me. I grabbed a brownie from the platter and enjoyed every single bite. The brownies are divine. The Twix candy bar chunks add a pleasant crunch to the fudgy brownies and the caramel creates tunnels of sweet, ooey, gooey, goodness. The brownies are very rich so I was satisfied with just one…for awhile. I had to have another one at the party. I didn’t want our guests to think the brownies were unsafe to eat. I had to set a good example:)

If you are looking for a simple and fun way to jazz up the traditional brownie, try this Twix Caramel Brownie recipe.

    I’m right there with you, baking time is always the hardest to get through when you’re forced to smell whatever you’re making! But the wait is always worth it in the end :)

    I’m a Twix fanatic, too. I don’t eat candy bars often but you can’t pass up a Twix. Great recipe!

    Twix are my very favorite candy bar! I don’t buy them much because I have no self control around them. These brownies would be extra dangerous to have around :)

    All I can say is that it’s a good thing I did not read this post while my teenagers were home. One look and I’d be forced to drop everything and make these….
    Now at least I can do it on my schedule since they do look, sound and I am sure are fabulous!!!
