Twix Blondies

You know what is pure evil? The strategic placement of candy bars next to the checkout lines at the grocery stores/Target/everywhere. Seriously. There's nothing harder than resisting the impulsive urge to purchase and devour a Peanut Butter Snickers or a Milky Way, just to name a phew. I hope many of you are nodding in agreement...cause it's tough.

Sometimes, life demands that we consume candy bars. We all know it's true. I mean, there is often no better medication than chocolate. Can't deny that.

So, I present to you Twix Blondies. Thanks to this recipe from Cookies and Cups, you can indulge in nearly 40 mini Twix at once (well, in one pan). These are a perfect blend of caramel, chocolate, and buttery, blondie goodness and will therefore satisfy all your sweet cravings.

Do yourself a favor this week and pick up 2 bags of mini Twix, chop 'um up, and make these blondies. Indulge and savor this chocolatey, caramel goodness.

Twix Blondies
Recipe from Cookies and Cups

  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. coarse sea salt
  • 30 mini Twix bars coarsely chopped + 9 mini Twix bars (reserved for garnish) more finely chopped 
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup melted chocolate chips for garnish
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 13x9 baking pan.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt, whisking together.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, and vanilla on low speed until smooth.
  4. Add eggs one at a time, continuing on low speed.
  5. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture until just combined.
  6. Add the coarsely chopped Twix and chocolate chips, stirring in with a wooden spoon.
  7. Spread batter into prepared pan and bake approximately 25-30 minutes until they are set. Toothpick will come out slightly gooey. Be careful not to overcook.
  8. When removed from oven, sprinkle reserved Twix on top and drizzle with melted chocolate.
  9. Cool in pan for 2-3 hours or overnight. Don't cut the bars until they are completely cooled or you'll have a big mess!
