Twix Cookies Inspiration
I was inspired to make these Twix Cookie Cups while surfing Pinterest (where else). I came across this delicious little recipe from 2007. Tucked away in the annals of Pinterest by one of the best, Tartlette. Helene, the writer of Tartlette, is also the writer of my very favorite foodie photography how-to, Plate to Pixel. If you’re a food blogger, you better buy that book. Every single food blogger HAS to read it. Okay moving on…
Helene made a similar recipe to these Twix Cookie Cups back in 2007 and I wish I would have found it way back then! I changed a couple things to make it even easier for the novice in all of us. But otherwise this is her idea and her recipe. THANK YOU TARTLETTE!!!

I love this Twix Cookies recipe for many reasons. The main reason, of course, is because they are just so darn delicious. What’s not to love about layers of chocolate and caramel? But I also love these cookie cups because they’re so easy to make! Cookie cups are a fun alternative to regular ole’ cookies, you just bake them in a muffin pan.
How to Make Twix Cookies:
- Take 1/2 inch sections of premade sugar cookie dough & press them into a greased muffin tin
- Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350°F
- Create cookie cups by pushing a shot glass into the dough
- Let cool for a couple of minutes & then remove the cookie cups from the muffin tin
- Heat up the caramel (with water) in the microwave
- Fill each cookie cup 2/3 full with caramel then set in fridge for 20 minutes
- Heat chocolate in microwave, fill the tops of the cookie cups, and set in fridge
Once the cookies have cooled, they’re all ready to serve! This method creates the most perfect layers. These Twix Cookies are just soooo good! See the recipe card below for full instructions.

- preheat oven to 350F

- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are slightly golden. Depending on your oven, it could take more or less, so watch carefully to make sure they don't burn.
- Take out of oven and create a cup by pushing the end of shot glass into each muffin cup (you could also use the bottom of a spice jar or wooden spoon. you just need to push the middle of each cookie back down to create a "cup")
- Allow to cool slightly and then using a butter knife, carefully take each cookie out of the muffin tin.
- Heat the caramel with the water in a microwave. (use more or less water depending on the consistency of the caramel) Heat in intervals of 30 seconds, stirring between heating. It should take 2-3 times to be fully melted and creamy. Fill each cookie cup 2/3 full with caramel.
- Place cookies in the fridge for about 20 minutes to set the caramel. While caramel is setting, melt chocolate in the microwave, again in intervals of 30 seconds.
- Take cookies out of fridge and pour chocolate to the top of each cookie. Sprinkle each cookie with a pinch of sea salt.
- Cool cookies in the fridge to set chocolate and then store in an airtight container.
