Twix Brownies

Brownies. As you may have noticed, I’ve developed a serious thing for them. Although I may not be the most enthusiastic chocolate consumer around, brownies have stolen my heart and become my newest baking addiction. There’s just something about decadent brownies stuffed with bits of candy bars that makes me a little weak in the knees.

Brian’s recently developed a little addiction of his own in the form of Twix candy bars. With the golden wrapped bars of caramel goodness filling our candy dish, it was only a matter time before they made their way into the center of thick, rich brownie batter.

Baked to ooey gooey perfection, the Twix cookie layer added just the right amount of crunch. And since I’ve never been good at leaving well enough alone, I had to take these over the top with a drizzle of melted caramel candies. And if you’re feeling a little indulgent, serve them warm and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream – not that I did that or anything.

Twix Brownies

Yield: 12 brownies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30-35 minutes

Ingredients:

4 ounces unsweetened chocolate; coarsely chopped
3/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1 1/4 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
12 Fun Size Twix Bars, each cut into thirds

For the Caramel

10 individually wrapped caramel candies (I used Kraft)
2 tablespoons heavy cream

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8×8 inch baking pan with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Microwave chocolate and butter in a large bowl microwave-safe bowl at medium (50% power) for 3-4 minutes or until butter is melted.

3. Stir until chocolate is melted. Whisk in sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt. Gradually add in flour; stir until just combined.

4. Spread 1/2 the batter into prepared pan. Add an even layer of chopped Twix candy bars and cover with remaining 1/2 of brownie batter. Bake for 30-35 minutes; do not over bake.

5. Remove to cooling rack to cool completely. Just before serving, cut brownies and prepare the caramel sauce.

6. To make the caramel, place the caramels and heavy cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on 50% power in 30-second increments until the caramels begin to melt; stir frequently. Continue warming and stirring the caramels until you have a smooth, creamy mixture. Drizzle over each brownie and serve immediately.

Notes:

- The brownies are very fudgy, make sure you allow them to cool completely before cutting into them.
- Take these brownies to another level by serving them topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

    You had me a “Twix” and “brownies”! This looks decadent!

    I am in love! These look absolutely divine! I do have one question — in the directions it says malted milk powder, but I can’t see it in the ingredient list. Am I missing something?

    Thanks!

      Darcy-
      Thanks for correcting that error, the malt powder was from another recipe. Sorry about the confusion.

  29. Wait, so these are twix brownies drizzled with caramel and you can add ice cream on top? Screw clean eating. I’m having these for dinner tonight!

  30. Gemma — May 4, 2012 at 4:05 pm

    First the fact that they are TWIX BROWNIES.
    Then with the CARAMEL SAUCE.
    And then, then I read “prep time: 10 minutes”.
    I will reserve judgement until they are made and eaten but this could very well be the best recipe ever.

  31. Lori @ RecipeGirl — May 4, 2012 at 4:34 pm

    I’m trying my best to stay OFF the brownies right now. This isn’t helping! They look seriously fabulous.

  32. Aubrie — May 4, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    These look amazing. And I couldn’t help but laugh when you said to add ice cream if you’re feeling a “little” indulgent…because clearly brownies stuffed with candy bars and drizzled with caramel isn’t at all indulgent on its own :)

  33. Tracy {Pale Yellow} — May 4, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    These brownies look AH-mazing! Perfect caramel drizzle!

  34. Christine — May 4, 2012 at 8:03 pm

    Woo hoo! Thanks so much for posting this recipe! I was just wondering what I was going to do with all of my leftover Easter Twix candies and now I know! :)

  35. Two of my favorite things together! Heavenly!

  36. luv what you do — May 4, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    I’m not typically a huge fan of brownies, but when you add caramel, they take on a whole new level. Great recipe!

  37. Tracy — May 4, 2012 at 9:26 pm

    Oooh, these sound fabulous! Love that caramel sauce on top…so decadent.

  38. Yummm!!! I’m drooling looking at these right now!

  39. TidyMom — May 4, 2012 at 9:37 pm
