Homemade Twix Bars are so indulgent and made with feel-good ingredients. They’re gluten free, vegan, and the perfect homemade candy bar!

Homemade Twix bars will be your new favorite candy to make at home! Twix bars, you guys!! I love recreating sugary treats into equally delicious desserts with better for you ingredients.

This recipe comes in three layers. A cookie shortbread layer, followed by a sweet, drizzly homemade caramel layer, and a hardened chocolate on top. I added some flaked sea salt because sweet and salty is THE BEST EVER and it makes them ever so more delicious.

A few notes on the recipe, I always line my baking pan with parchment for easy removal with the caramel and you will have to keep them in a cool location when you are done taking a few bars off the tray, and you also might eat them all in one sitting!

Ingredients to make homemade Twix bars:

  • refined coconut oil
  • agave nectar (honey, coconut nectar, or maple syrup works too)

  • salt

How to make homemade Twix bars:

Make the shortbread layer

In a bowl whisk together the coconut oil, agave nectar, vanilla, almond flour, and sea salt. I found it easiest to use a rubber spatula to fold everything until completely combined.

Transfer the batter to the pan lined with parchment paper and press the dough into the bottom of your pan to create an even base and bake for 12 minutes until golden brown.

Make the caramel

In a saucepan add the coconut cream, coconut sugar, vanilla, and sea salt over medium-high heat. When everything starts to bubble, whisk frequently for about 10 minutes until it thickens up and the color darkens.

Remove from the heat.

Pour the caramel over the cookie layer

When the cookie base is done baking, allow to sit for 10 minutes. Give the caramel one more whisk and pour over the cookie base. Refrigerate for an hour.

Add the chocolate on top

Melt the chocolate and pour over the top of your set caramel. Add back into the fridge this time to set another hour.

Pull the parchment paper up and place on a cutting board. Slice into bars and sprinkle with sea salt.
