TWIX® Caramel Cookies - #eatmorebites #cbias #ad

Do you and your family plan any special outings for memorial day weekend? As far as our family goes, memorial day is the kickoff for summer season and we almost always enjoy some family time together, backyard grilling with a water activity. Not only is it a day to remember our heroes and celebrate the sacrifices they made for us, It’s a special day because to JP because it represents the end of school and the beginning of summer fun and games.

I made a few sweet treats in preparation for our weekend, and this one is by far my favorite! TWIX® bite-size chocolate candy made the perfect chocolate chips for my cookies. Instead of using the regular chips, I decided to sub it for crushed up TWIX® candy that I spotted at Walmart this weekend. I love those little sample demonstrations – I always get sold on whatever they are promoting!

Did you know that they have an awesome promotion going on too? Get $1.00 off when you buy two 2.83oz bags or 3.00$ when you purchase two 6oz or larger of these bite-size delights!

$1.00 off when you buy two 2.83 oz. or larger bags - $3.00 off when you buy two 6 oz. or larger bags

I thought that crushed up TWIX® would bring both chocolate AND caramel to a plain a cookie dough and take it from an ordinary dessert to an extraordinary one.

In hindsight, I should have stored the bag of TWIX® in the freezer overnight so the bite-size pieces would be completely solid when I run them in the food processor to crumble them. It still worked out fine, but I think having them frozen beforehand would have make a more uniform crumble.

So using this basic cookie dough recipe, I sub’ed the chocolate chips for my chocolate/caramel crumbles instead!
