Twixies

5:31 AM

A long time ago Christmas cookies and desserts came up in a conversation with a group of friends, and one person mentioned something that she makes every year. It was really simple the way she described how to make it (and I'm almost certain I remember the recipe exactly). She said that the cookies were supposed to taste somewhat like Twix, so I called these Twixies.


I remember specifically that she uses saltines because I thought it was a strange thing to use, but I figured it was worth a shot. Just to stay on the safe side I made half of these with graham crackers also, which sounded like would be more fitting. I think I must have remembered the recipe wrong, because these little guys were....extremely sweet and pretty much overkill. I couldn't handle eating these little things, and after a bite or two, the hubs agreed that these weren't really worth making. I will be on a google-scavenger hunt to find a similar recipe to see what I did wrong, because I love the idea of making a Twix-like cookie. Sadly, these sure didn't do the trick. Maybe someone out there knows what these are supposed to be like and give me the proper recipe!

Twixies

1 sleeve saltine crackers
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 bag semisweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 400˚.

2. Line a cookie sheet with foil and lay out the crackers on top. Stir together the butter and brown sugar in a saucepan until boiling. Boil for one minute. Pour butter mixture over the crackers.

3. Bake in oven for 3-6 minutes, until bubbly. Remove from oven and cool slightly. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and let cool completely. Break apart and store.
