Homemade Twix Bars Recipe

Twix bars are a little more complicated than the others as they have a crust below the filling, but they are very delicious, and this recipe is worth a try. This recipe is great for individuals following a paleo diet and is also gluten free.

Ingredients

The Chocolate:

1/4 cup of melted coconut oil
1/4 cup of organic cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt (flaky)
2 tablespoons of natural maple syrup

Caramel Filling:

1/2 a cup of almond butter
1/3 of a cup of organic maple syrup
1/3 melted coconut oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt

The Crust:

2/3 of a cup of coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt
1/3 cup solid coconut oil
3 tablespoons of organic maple syrup

Directions

The Crust: We will start with the crust as it needs to be baked in the oven.

1. Preheat your oven to around 350 degrees (Fahrenheit)
2. Then grease a pan (about eight by eight inches) with some coconut oil.
3. Add the salt and coconut flour in a bowl, then combine the two.
4. Add maple syrup to the mixture and combine, followed by coconut oil.
5. Form a large ball with the mixture and press it into the greased pan.
6. Bake the crust for about 10 minutes – take it out of the over once the edges are golden brown.

Caramel Filling

1. Add all of the ingredients into a saucepan and stir over a low heat.
2. Keep stirring until all of the ingredients have been properly combined, then pour the mixture over the crust and add to the freezer.
3. While the filling is busy setting over the crust in the freezer, pour all of the chocolate ingredients into a pan and whisk them together.
4. Once the part in the freezer has set, pour the chocolate part over and place back into the freezer.
5. Once your Twix bar has cooled down, simply cut it into slices and enjoy.
