If you want to make the best homemade Twix bars possible, here are a few tips to keep in mind:
1. Use room temperature butter: This will help the dough come together easily and create a tender, flaky crust.
2. Don’t overmix the dough: Overmixing the dough can lead to tough, dry bars. Mix just until a crumbly dough forms, and then press it into the pan.
3. Use a thick caramel: Using a thick, creamy caramel will help it stay in place on top of the crust and prevent it from oozing out when you cut the bars.
With these tips and the delicious recipe above, you’re sure to impress your friends and family with your homemade Twix bars. Enjoy!
