Twix Brownies

Personally, I would argue that twix is one of the best chocolate bars but also I stutter when arguing so I would probably lose but yeah I wanted to make twix brownies but instead of just chopping up the chocolate bar and adding it to brownie batter, I wanted to take the elements of a twix and add it in layers to the brownie. This is one of my favourite desserts I’ve ever made, the different textures made it so good!!

Ingredients

  • for the base:
  • 410g shortbread biscuits

  • 80g unsalted butter

  • for the brownies:
  • 225g butter

  • 140g dark chocolate
    (chopped into small pieces)

  • 5 eggs

  • 200g brown sugar

  • 200g granulated sugar

  • 100g plain flour

  • 50g cocoa powder

  • for the caramel:
  • 110g unsalted butter

  • 1 tin condensed milk
    (around 400g)

  • 150g sugar

  • 50g golden syrup

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • for the chocolate topping:
  • 200g dark chocolate

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

Directions

  • base:
  • start by greasing and lining a 9x12 inch tin. the brownie will be a lot easier to get out at the end if you line each side of the tin with baking paper
  • crush the biscuits until they're a fine crumb and also melt the butter
  • mix the crumbs and the butter together, then add this into the tin and press it down until it's a compact and even layer.
  • brownie:
  • pre-heat your oven to 180c/350f
  • add the butter into a pot and place this pot over medium-low heat
  • keep heating this until the butter starts bubbling and then eventually it will turn a light brown colour. make sure to keep stirring during this process
  • take the butter off the heat and add the chocolate into it. once the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth, leave it aside to cool for 5-10 minutes
  • in a large bowl, add the eggs and both sugars
  • whip these together until the mixture lightens in colour and almost doubles in volume. if you're using an electric mixer, 5 minutes on medium-high speed will be good
  • while still mixing, pour in the cooled butter/chocolate mixture
  • now add the flour and cocoa powder and mix until the batter is smooth
  • add this into the tin and bake for about 35-40 minutes
  • caramel:
  • once the brownie has been baked and cooled slightly, you can make the caramel
  • add all the ingredients, except the salt, into a tall non stick pot
  • add this pot over low heat. you don't want to make the heat any higher whiles making this, this caramel burns easily
  • keep cooking this and stirring constantly until the caramel changes colour slightly. the difference won't be huge but you're looking for a light amber colour. the darker the colour, the chewier the final caramel will be, so you want to make sure you don't let it get too dark
  • once it has become a light amber colour, take it off the heat and mix in the salt
  • pour this over the brownie, let it cool down then cover and leave it in the fridge for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight
  • chocolate topping:
  • melt the chocolate and the oil together
  • once the brownie has fully chilled, take it out of the tin and spread the chocolate on top
  • let the chocolate set, then cut it into pieces and you're done!
