How To: Make Twix Bars at Home

This may be a vegan recipe, but these may also be some of the most delicious homemade treats I’ve ever experienced. Don’t want to give in to that ‘vegan-tree-hugger-tofu-shmofu’ crap? Substitute the margarine, soy milk & vegan chocolate chips for the real deal, and stop your whining.  The succulent combination of the snappy shortbread, the chewy caramel & the delicious, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate – ingredients listed below – will likely do the trick!

Shortbread base:

  • 1/2 cup vegan margarine
  • 1 cup flour (half whole wheat gives a nice crunch)
  • 6 tablespoons sugar

Caramel Filling:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup nondairy milk (I use soy)
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon butter flavoring, optional

Chocolate coating:

  • 2 cups vegan chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons canola or olive oil
