Before we talk about Twix Caramel Cookie Bars, I have some exciting news to share! Tomorrow I am flying to New York City with Land O’ Lakes. I am going to be on the TODAY show with Kathie Lee and Hoda on Thursday! I just found out on Friday so I am rushing around like a mad woman trying to get ready for my trip. I have to find something to wear, I need a manicure, and a haircut! I am a little nervous, but I am mostly excited because I get to be on with two of my blogging friends, Ree and Bridget. Make sure you tune in on Thursday to see our cooking segment!

Ok, now let’s talk dessert. Do you still have Easter candy lingering around? We really didn’t buy Caleb much Easter candy, but the after Easter sales got me. I stocked up on Cadbury Mini Eggs, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and Twix candy bars. I can’t resist a good sale on all of my favorite candies. Plus, I have been craving Twix bars like mad! I guess this baby has a sweet tooth like his mama:)

I used some of our Twix Candy Bars to create a spectacular dessert, Twix Caramel Cookie Bars. That’s right, a chocolate chip cookie bar with Twix candy bars AND salted caramel sauce. Is your mouth watering yet? 🙂

The hardest part about this recipe is chopping up the candy bars and NOT eating them all. It took some major will power to save the Twix candy bars for the cookie bars.

I also drizzled salted caramel sauce over the bars before baking. I used a toothpick to swirl the caramel into the bars. I used our homemade salted caramel sauce, but you can use store bought caramel sauce if you want. I like Trader Joe’s salted caramel sauce when I am in a pinch.

  1. CONGRATS on the today show! That’s so awesome!! 🙂
    And these cookies bars? The perfect way to celebrate! I will definitely join you in dessert heaven….I can guarantee I won’t be leaving with these babies for a while! Pinned!

  2. Congratulations on the show. Have fun. Being in Italy Twix is one of the few American chocolate bars that we get, so thanks for sure I’m going to give these a try. @anitalianinmykitchen.com

  3. How exciting to be on the Today Show, I’ll be watching! These bars look and sound fantastic and it would take tons of willpower from me as well not to nibble on the Twix candies while I cut them. Congrats on your TV appearance!

  4. Congrats on the Today show! I’m sure you’ll look fine:)
    The Twix Cookie Bars look yum! I’ll have to try them though my willpower isn’t much these days…lol
    Checked out Bridget’s blog…don’t know why I wasn’t following her before but can I just say YUM!….

  5. These look amazingly yummy, and I do have left over twix Easter candy…looks like the snow keeping us inside was sent to give a reason to bake 🙂 Congrats on the show, I will be tuning in!

  6. These look just amazing! Love twix so much, but I never seem to catch them on sale. I had a major sweet tooth when I was pregnant and breathed a sigh of relief when I passed my gestational diabetes test. That would have been torture to abstain from sugar! Congrats on your today show appearance!

  7. OMG! these are so cool!! ok, it’s almost 2 am here in England and if there were any store open I would go out in a sec to buy twix… gotta wait tomorrow! 🙁

  8. Hi! I’ve never commented on this site before, but I have been following you for a couple of months now.

    Congrats on your t.v. appearance. I kept on checking my nbc to see when u were on. It was nice to see u on. I think ur baby bump is so cute. 🙂 And those scones looked very delish.

    All the best!

  9. Have just made this Twix slice and it turned out beautifully. I did have to adjust temperature on my convection oven as 325F/150c was way too slow,( I wasn’t sure if that was the temp for fan forced ovens?) so upped temp to 170c which is the usual temp I cook my bars & slices at. Hubby has given it the thumbs up, he is eating it whilst it is still very hot straight out of oven! I substituted raw sugar for the granulated sugar, chopped up white choc melts in place of milk chips and used a brandy caramel sauce I had hiding in cupboard.
    Does anyone know if this can be frozen as it turned out far bigger than I imagined and don’t want hubby to snuffle through the whole tray, as I don’t eat chocolate.
    Thanks for another great recipe!

  10. Could I half this recipe to be put into an 8×8 pan? Also any other ways/ideas to use up leftover salted caramel sauce?
