Twix Thumbprint Cookies

So Twix Thumbprint Cookies exist and they’re actually pretty easy to make. Yes, seriously! Beautifully crumbly biscuit filled with chewy caramel, finished off with a generous drizzling of milk chocolate… Who needs the real deal when you can make better yourself?! I do warn though, these beauties are hazardous to your waistline. (Trust me, you’re not just having one!)

Here is what you will need to make 22-24

For the Caramel

  • 55g Unsalted Butter
  • 100g Light Brown Soft Sugar
  • 55g Honey
  • 1 tbsp Double Cream

 

For the Biscuit

  • 115g Unsalted Butter, room temp
  • 65g Icing Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 160g Plain Flour

 

For the Drizzle

  • 100g Milk Chocolate

 

To make the caramel, melt together the butter, sugar, honey & cream.

Allow to cool whilst we make the biscuits.

Preheat your oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C.

To make the biscuit, in an electric stand mixer or a large bowl with an electric hand whisk, beat together the butter, icing sugar, salt & vanilla until light and fluffy.

As soon as they come out the oven, using the rounded handle of a kitchen utensil, press indents into the middle of each cookie.

Allow to cool on the tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

When the caramel has cooled, pour it into a piping bag or plastic zip lock back. Snip the end and squeeze caramel into the indents of each cookie.

Break the chocolate into a bowl then heat in 10 second intervals in the microwave. Stir well between each blast. When it’s completely melted, pour into a piping bag/zip lock bag.

Place some newspaper or paper underneath the cooling rack, snip the end of the piping bag/zip lock bag and drizzle the chocolate over each cookie.

Aren’t they beautiful?? Twix Thumbprint Cookies have been possibly the most quickly disappearing cookie to ever grace the KitchenMason household! They really are moreish though, I mean seriously! I’ve had 2 occasions in 1 day where I’ve had to stop myself reaching for a 5th cookie. Probably not the greatest health choice I’ve made in a while but hey, one of the tastiest!

I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time.
