Crumbl Twix Cookies
Twix is one of my favorite candy bars. I mean, I try to not be biased when it comes to candy…I’d eat almost any candy bar placed in front of me (besides you, Almond Joy!). If I played favorites, though, Twix and Milky Way would be up there.
And what do those two glorious candy bars have in common? Chocolate and Caramel. Heart eyes for days. SERIOUSLY.
And these Twix cookies are all the good things wrapped up together! A delicious sugar cookie base stuffed with Twix pieces, topped with luscious caramel and creamy chocolate. HELLO!!! Welcome to your new favorite cookie!
Ingredients In Copycat Twix Cookies
For the Cookie
- Softened Butter- I use salted butter because that is what I always have on hand. You could use unsalted if that is what you have, but you will want to add a pinch of salt to the recipe.
- Sugar- Just granulated sugar for this recipe!
- Vanilla Extract
- Oil- I love what the oil does for the texture of the cookie in this recipe! It creates a nice and buttery crisp edge that almost reminds me of shortbread…It’s amazingly delicious!
- Flour- All purpose flour will work great in this recipe.
- Baking Powder
- Twix Candy Bars- These get chopped up small and added to the cookie.
For the toppings
- Caramel Dip- Needs to be caramel dip, not caramel sauce. The sauce is too thin and won’t work the same way.
- Milk Chocolate Chips
- Mini Twix Bars- This is for garnish so you could get away with not using this ingredient…but who doesn’t want more Twix?
How To Make Twix Cookies
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
While the oven is preheating begin the cookie dough by creaming together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Scrape the sides of the bowl and add the eggs, vanilla extract and oil and beat again until it is mixed well. Scrape the sides again and add the flour and baking powder. Mix again until thoroughly combined. Add in the chopped Twix and mix until well incorporated.
Scoop out 1/3 cup of dough and roll it into a ball. Flatten the dough just slightly with your hands. The dough will continue to spread and flatten as it bakes. Bake at 350 degrees for 14-16 minutes. Be careful not to overbake the cookies, you will know they are done because the center of the cookie will puff up and they will no longer look wet on the top.
Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool completely on the cookie sheet. When the cookies are cooled, heat the caramel in the microwave until it is soft and spreadable.
Spoon 2 tablespoons of caramel on top of each cookie and spread so that the caramel covers the tops of each cookie. When each cookie is covered in caramel, melt the chocolate chips by placing them in a microwave safe bowl and microwaving for 30 seconds. Remove the chocolate from the microwave and stir. Repeat heating the chocolate in 30 second increments until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
Spoon 2 tablespoons of chocolate onto each cookie and spread it over the caramel. Finish by placing a mini Twix bar in the center of the cookie. Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving and serve chilled.
Can I make smaller cookies?
You can make the cookies smaller if you want to by only scooping out 3 tablespoons of dough and adjusting the bake time to 9-11 minutes.
How should I store leftover cookies?
You’ll want to store your cookies in an air tight container and keep them in the fridge. Most caramel dip needs to be refrigerated after opening so it is important to store your cookies in the fridge.

This recipe is awesome and super indulgent! Will definitely make again!
They turned out so good! Perfect recipe! Thank you!
I’m so excited to try this! How did you chip the Twix bars?
I’m looking forward to making these! Could you clarify if you cream together sugar/butter for one minute or until light and fluffy? In my experience, it takes a lot longer than 1 minute to become light and fluffy.
Cooking with Karli says
Sometimes it does take longer, but you just want to keep it light and fluffy.
Karli Bitner says
I just chopped them roughly with my chef’s knife on a cutting board.
Hi! Does it have to be canola oil for the recipe? Wondering if I can use olive oil
Karli Bitner says
I wouldn’t use olive oil- that has a pretty strong bitter flavor to it that wouldn’t be optimal. It’s best to use canola oil or vegetable oil.
Hi!! If you want to make smaller cookies do you change the temp or cooking time?
Karli Bitner says
Temp will stay the same, just shorten the cook time a bit. Just watch for the cookies to puff up a little and for the center to no longer look wet and glossy on top.
Kristy A says
What kind of caramel dip do you use for your cookies?
Karli Bitner says
I usually either use the lighthouse or marzetti brand of caramel dip that is used for dipping apples.
