Twix Truffle Brownies

My favorite Candy Bar is hands down Twix. I love the caramel, shortbread, chocolate combo.

I was brainstorming some ideas a couple weeks ago and then this brilliant one hit me. I am obsessed with my Oreo Truffle Brownies… yummy brownie, oreo truffle filling topped with chocolate. Why not make a Twix version?!

Oh. My. Gosh. Time to break out the stretchy pants… This recipe will completely knock your socks off. If you love the components of Twix, then you will LOVE this recipe!

This recipe is a fudgy chocolate brownie topped with a shortbread cookie truffle, gooey caramel and melted chocolate… yeah, its pretty amazing :)

    They look insanely good!!! ALL THOSE LAYERS! Omg yes, break out the stretchy pants is right! Pinned!

    I would love to eat these for...breakfast right now :)

  2. LaWanda

    I am going to make these for my son's birthday. Is there something else that I can use to replace the shortening?

  3. Catherine M.

    Hahaha! "Starchy pants"!

    But seriously, can't wait to make these - thanks for sharing!

    1. Chef in Training

      haha! Thanks for catching that! All fixed now :)

  4. Mir

    Totally worth the stretchy pants! And they look amazing!

  5. Kay

    This sounds like something that would be good to take to a party. Is that 1/2 "bag" or "cup" of chocolate chips in the last layer?

    1. Chef in Training

      1/2 cup… sorry about that! Fixed in the recipe now :) Thanks for catching that!

  6. Lois Rife

    How do you cut these and make them look so pretty?

  7. Theresa

    Made these and they are great. Quick question though, could I replace the cream cheese in the short bread layer with butter or anything else?

  8. Leslie White

    I'm not a caramel Twix fan but I LOVE peanut butter Twix so I'm going to do mine with some sort of peanut butter layer.

  9. Shasta

    I've got these in the oven now. I'm up to 30 min. of baking time and the center is still extremely gooey. What am I doing wrong? The batter seemed extremely thick, more so than normal brownie batter. Anyone else have this issue?

    1. Kayla

      I did! I had to keep mine in the oven for like 35 minutes!

  10. Jrzgrl

    These were incredible! I used a whole bag of milk chocolate and a whole bag of semisweet. Can't wait to make them again!

    Hi, I love your recipes and try tyem whenever I can find the ingredients. ..yyou see I'm from Pakistan and I can't find some things like the caramels that tge twix cookies call for...pls tell me what I can use instead of store bought caramels. ..maybe something I can make something at home...thanx

  12. Ayushi Agarwal

    What is the substitute for egg??

  13. Sarah

    Ok, I made these last night - they look soooo good. I don't know what I did wrong thought because the caramel is not gooey, it is so hard to cut the cake and to eat it. Should I have added more milk to them when melting? Otherwise it is superb. Thanks

  14. elsie

    can i use oil or butter instead of shorting for the chocolate chips thanks

  15. Antonia

    Thought these were really good. Made them yesterday. Personally, for me a bit too much. Something that I would like a piece of once in a while

  16. Caitlin Soplata

    How many brownies does this recipe make?

  17. Susan

    Hi - these look amazing! I am wondering if you think I can sub the cream cheese for whipping cream or yogurt? I am not a big fan of cream cheese. Please let me know your thoughts! Thanks!

    1. Chef in Training

      Unfortunately, I would not sub out the cream cheese. The texture and concept of the truffle will not be the same. I am so sorry. I wish I could be of more help.

    I just made these! I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out great - they are SUPER rich though. If you are bringing them to a party/work, cut them into 1" bite sized pieces because that's seriously all you need! I love Twix + brownies and this is a such a delicious combo of the two

  20. Janice

    These look awesome! Do you think I could make, cut into bite size pieces and freeze. I would like to use them a week later on a dessert tray.

  21. JanIce

    Do you think I could bake, cut into bite size pieces and freeze for 5-7 days? I would like to use these on a cookie tray.

  22. M

    Something not right with the chocolate. not melting in micro, just getting hard. Should there be milk included?

  23. megan


    i happened upon this site randomly and tried these brownies out. the folks in my office have renamed them "crack brownies" and i get constant requests for them. i made them as is the first time, but since have stopped making the truffel layer and just layer the cookies dry and un-crushed to give it more of the twix feel in addition ot the twix taste.

  24. Paula


    Sadly the brownie and shortbread layers will not stay together; the whole thing is falling apart. Time consuming to make for the result. Disappointing.

  25. Christian

    Probably a silly question, but when you say "flour" does that mean self rising? Thanks! Can't wait to start these!

  26. Renata

    Hi. Where I there's no Lorna Doone Shortbread Cookies can I change for some other type of cookie or make the original recipe? Thank you.

  27. Renata

    Hi. Where I live there's no Lorna Doone's Shortbread Cookies can I change for another cookie or the original recipe? Thank you.
