Homemade Twix Bites
#28: I’ve eaten way too many of these, in every stage of preparation. #SCP.
We’re back this week! It’s spring break, and so we’ve got a lot of cooking in our future, including: Kalbi, Dakgalbi (for the first time…fingers crossed!), and scones! Justin is here with me and we made a delicious treat we want to share.
Beware: these are not for the faint of heart. They are so rich, we could have cut them even smaller. But they’re the most delicious thing you’ve ever eaten.
A couple things to start out: Walker’s are EXPENSIVE. Something like $5/package. My next time I make these, I’m going to try my own shortbread! The original recipe calls for the caramel you have to unwrap, but the bits were all I could find and they were fine. Also, note I added a little more milk than the original.
4. Let this cool for ages, and hope your fat cat doesn’t try to eat it. We let it sit for an afternoon.
5. Get a super good-looking dude with a knife to separate all of yours into pieces. You can just flip it onto a cutting board sprayed with non-stick spray. 🙂 We ended up cutting them into three pieces per shortbread piece, because…they’re huge. and rich. Be certain to taste test at this stage. They’re delicious as-is.
6. Melt chocolate chips (just in the microwave) with a bit of canola oil. Dip each piece and lay on wax paper. Add a sprinkle of flat kosher salt to the tops! 🙂 Let dry and store in a cool dry place (like, not above the dishwasher…our salt and chocolate melted a teeny bit).
ENJOY. FOR REALS THO.
