    Thank you for this amazing step by step tutorial of this nice recipe, You must have put in a lot if energy in putting this down and I sincerely appreciate that. Though this is the first time of coming across Twix bars I will try to get the necessary ingredients and try it out. But my only concern is the sugar content because i don’t take much sugar.

    Thanks for this your food tutorial. Although I’m new to this kind of recipe but your explanations has but been  very helpful. So I believe I can prepare some home made  home made prix bar. I want to ask can adults take this because it may be sugary considering all the ingredients that shall be added to it to  garnish it. I’m talking of adults of age 60 and above?

      Well, I’m 59 and I do enjoy them once in a while!  Mostly, though, I give them as gifts to friends and neighbors, so I don’t worry about my blood sugar too much.  Thanks for the comment!

    The recipe sounds heavenly! As a mother of 4, I am always on the lookout for different and new homemade treats. The recipe contains quite a lot of sugar, is there any substitute that can be used? I am trying to reduce my family’s intake of sugar as I’m pretty sure they have way over their limit. Thanks for a great recipe!

    • Don Herman says:

      I guess I take a different approach to sugar.  There are sugar substitutes out there to use, but I have yet to find one that a) bakes correctly and b) sets up correctly.  And you have to do both here.  For the shortbread, you need the sugar to carmelize a bit to hold the bread together.  And with caramel – I don’t think there’s any non-calorie sweetener that will set up as caramel.  

      I choose to limit sugar intake by creating smaller portions.  Growing up, that’s what my mom used to do, too – with five kids to feed, she had to!  Using the silicone mini-muffin cups will yield smaller pieces that perhaps you can regulate a bit better.  Thanks for the comment!

    I love chocolate, I love Twix, my God what a great Recipe to do; I am even scared to prepare it because I am not sure I would want to share it with anyone. 

    This might be a bit of a tricky question, do you think I could follow all the instructions but turn it into a Vegan recipe since I am a Vegan? I will try to find the subsite for everything and let you Know! Thank you for the great idea anyway!

    • Don Herman says:

      I always hesitate to say “yes, you can make it Vegan” because it always gets me into trouble!  There doesn’t appear to be one clear definition of what makes something Vegan.  But I do know that there are a lot of recipes out there that use coconut milk or soy milk in place of cow’s milk for making the caramel.  And for the shortbread, you could substitute a Vegan spread for the butter, and it would probably work fine.  Otherwise, that’s it – not a lot you would have to do.
