Twix Cookies are delicious shortbread cookies topped with caramel and milk chocolate that tastes just like the beloved Twix candy bar. Actually, we think this cookie recipe is even better! Super easy to make and will be your new favorite.

I love sharing delicious cookies on the blog, and these Twix Cookies are probably among my favorite. They are rich, creamy, with a nice caramel balance. They are purely irresistible. If you like caramel desserts, I recommend you try the Rolo Stuffed Salted Caramel Cookies or the Caramel Toffee Poke Cake.
