Twix cookies

Twix cookies, just like the chocolate bar. Shortbread, caramel and chocolate. What’s not to love.

Ingredients

Shortbread cookies

1 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 cups flour, sifted

1/4 tsp. sea salt

Topping

Caramel treat

60g milk chocolate, melted

1 tsp. vegetable oil

Method

Shortbread Cookies

1. Preheat oven to 175°c. Place rack in middle of oven. Line baking trays with baking paper.

2. Cream butter and icing sugar together until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and beat until combined.

3. Add the flour and salt and beat until just combined. Do not overmix.

4. Form the dough into a disk and wrap in plastic wrap. Place in refrigerator for an hour.

5. Remove from fridge and place on lightly floured surface. Roll dough out to about 1cm thickness. Cut with round cookie cutter. Transfer to prepared sheets placing 1 cm apart. Place sheets in refrigerator for 15 minutes.

6. Remove from refrigerator and bake, one sheet at a time, for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges. Let cool on sheet for 5 minutes, then remove to wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough until you’ve used it all.

Toppings

While all the cookies cool, whisk the caramel treat to get it nice and smooth. Top cooled cookies with 1 teaspoon of caramel. Let cool.

In a medium bowl, combine chopped chocolate and vegetable oil. Microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until totally melted and smooth. Top cooled caramel with about 1 teaspoon melted chocolate. Let the chocolate set before serving. If you can wait that long!
