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.
Bring to a rolling boil then keep boiling for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
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.
Scrape down the bowl then sift in the flour and beat until it forms a smooth, soft dough.
Scoop out teaspoon sized portions of the dough and roll into balls. Place them spaced apart on a large baking tray.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
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.
Allow the chocolate to set at room temperature then store in an airtight container at room temperature. Consume within 4-5 days.
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.
