Homemade Twix

I am not sure about you, but I am a sucker for anything chocolate and peanut butter. So when I decided to make homemade Twix candy bar, I knew they had to be delicious. I made these with the kids and they absolutely love them. Isabella helped me make the cookie crust. Lele made the peanut butter and chocolate layer with me. So this is definitely a great recipe to make with the kids.

 

I did an almond flour base cookie, which is a little bit healthier and makes the gluten free in case you need them. I love the way Jif all natural peanut butter cooks and it makes for a nice smooth layer. For the chocolate layer I use Ghirardelli chocolates. I usually use 60% cacao and a bittersweet chocolate. I find if I use a sweeter chocolate, it makes them too sweet for me. But feel free to play around with the chocolate and use what chocolate works best for you.

The final touch is a little bit of sea salt flakes on top. Salt and chocolate go hand in hand. It enriches the flavor of the chocolate and also adds balance to the sweetness. So grab the ingredients and get in the kitchen with your kids. It is such a fun treat to make with them.

Tips

You can substitute the almond flour for all purpose flour. In the peanut butter mixture I love the way Jif all natural peanut butter melts, but you can substitute if you want. I use Trader Joe’s almond flour, I have learned that other almond flour doesn’t bake as well.
