It’s Memorial Day weekend and you know what that means- Party Time! Cue the music, grab the bathing suits, and don’t forget the picnic basket. If your cookout looks like ours’ it’s quite treat heavy! Who needs burgers, potato salad, and chips? Not us! Ain’t nobody got time for that! Bring on the desserts! We’ll be filling our plates with lots of goodies like Supreme Cookie Butter Cookies, Salty and Sweet Butterscotch Blondies, and Twix Brownies. What’s on your holiday menu this year?
It’s our favorite day of the week and that’s no lie! When Saturday comes around we aren’t into playing tricks with sweet treat cravings. What we are into this week are TWIX. Twix Brownies to be exact! These caramel, shortbread cookie filled brownies are just the prank we need to pull a satisfying fast one on our chocolate-desiring tummies!
2 c. sugar
1 c. butter flavored Crisco
6 Tbsp cocoa
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
10-12individual Twix bars
1/3 c. caramel ice cream topping, plus extra for serving
Cut the Twix bars into small chunks and set aside.
Cream the Crisco and the sugar together with a mixer; add the eggs, cocoa and vanilla. Slowly add the flour so it doesn’t go everywhere.
Add the Twix chunks to the brownie batter and stir in with a spoon or spatula.
Pour the batter in a greased 9×13 pan. Drizzle the caramel topping evenly over the batter. After the caramel drizzle, take a toothpick and swirl the caramel around.
Bake for 35 minutes at 350°. Drizzle with more caramel to serve.
