Homemade Twix Bars Recipe

Makes: 16 bars
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Chill Time: 4 hours


Shortbread Base

Caramel Middle

Chocolate Topping


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan and bake for 11-13 minutes, or until sides are slightly brown. Let cool while preparing the next layer.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine almond butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, honey, and vanilla extract. Mix until completely smooth, then pour over the cooled crust and place in the fridge for 1-2 hours to harden.
  4. Once the caramel mixture is hardened, prepare the chocolate layer. In a medium bowl, combine the coconut oil, cacao powder, maple syrup, and sea salt. Mix until smooth and pour over the caramel layer. Refrigerate until hardened, about 1 hour.
  5. Once the chocolate has set, remove the Twix bars by pulling up on the parchment paper. Place entire square on a cutting board and cut in half one way and in eighths the other way, creating 16 candy sticks. Keep leftovers refrigerated.
