‘Twix!’

Okay, honesty moment!! Twix were probably my favorite candy growing up..or Skor bars…yes, I ate candy… we even had a huge candy drawer at my house that we filled up every year at halloween after trick-or-treating. I can’t even really imagine going and buying a traditional candy bar these days, so it’s kind of hilarious to look back on all of this. Obviously, I still have treats, but I definitely look at ingredient labels to make sure they are simple and don’t contain any unnecessary dyes, chemicals, or HFCS…ew! I also am shocked by how sweet these desserts are once you aren’t used to consuming massive amounts of sugars.

ANYWAYS, I had to healthify the twix since it was one of my favorites growing up! This recipe has a few steps, so it’s definitely for special occasions. But, the good news is that the ingredients can be used for multiple things.

For instance, the cookie part can also dub as a cracker recipe! So, make a double batch, nix the sweetener, and add in some savory ingredients to kill two birds with one stone! The caramel sauce is also great on it’s own as you saw from Monday’s post!
