If you've been a fan of Twix(TM) candy in the past but value your health more now, then this is the recipe for you! These Stix bars taste very similar, better actually, but contain much more natural ingredients. Similar to the store-bought variety, they contain 3 layers: shortbread cookie, caramel, and chocolate. But, nothing artificial, no additives, and no refined sugars. Just pure YUM!
This is the ingredient list for Twix(TM) bars (with about a dozen ingredients that I certainly wouldn't recommend!):
MILK CHOCOLATE (SUGAR, COCOA BUTTER, CHOCOLATE, SKIM MILK, LACTOSE, MILKFAT, SOY LECITHIN, PGPR, ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS), SUGAR, ENRICHED WHEAT FLOUR (WHEAT FLOUR, NIACIN, REDUCED IRON, THIAMINE MONONITRATE, RIBOFLAVIN, FOLIC ACID), PALM OIL, CORN SYRUP, SKIM MILK, DEXTROSE, LESS THAN 2% - FOOD STARCH-MODIFIED, SALT, COCOA POWDER, BAKING SODA, SOY LECITHIN, ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR.
Remember: Sweet treats are just that... a treat. So, I don't suggest eating a pan-full. The Stix are so rich, you may only want a small portion anyway. My kids and husband absolutely LOVED this recipe, especially the nice crunchy layer. No one will ever know they're "paleo treats"!
The Shortbread Cookie Crust:
The Chocolate Layer:
- Melt the 2 ingredients in a small saucepan pan on low heat.
- Pour the chocolate mixture over the cooled caramel layer & spread out evenly.
- Refrigerate again to harden the chocolate.
- Cut the Stix bars into any shape you wish. (I cut them into skinny rectangles, like the store bought Twix candy.)
- Store in the fridge.
THESE ARE DELICIOUS!!!!!
