There’s nothing quite like a sweet treat that doesn’t have to bake in the oven for hours.
Sometimes, you want to satisfy the sweet tooth without putting in a bunch of extra work, and that’s exactly what this recipe is for.
The bloggers from Dreaming in DIY shared this recipe for no-bake Twix cookie bars, and it’s just about the easiest dessert you can make.
It combines all the best flavors -- chocolate, caramel, vanilla, marshmallow -- into one delicious treat that’s ready in no time.
These bars taste just like the Twix candy and are so easy to whip up.
To make the recipe, they started by throwing both mini marshmallows and butter into a bowl and microwaving the ingredients until all the butter is melted.
Then, they stirred them together until the marshmallow was melted too, creating a smooth mixture.
The next step was then to pour the marshmallow mix over an entire box of mini Nilla Wafers, stirring the two together until all the cookies were evenly coated.
Next, they transferred the marshmallow-coated cookies into a casserole dish, flattened it out as much as possible and then put it in the fridge.
After that, the bloggers made their caramel sauce on the stove using butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and sweetened condensed milk.
When the sauce came to a boil and started to thicken, they pulled the cookies back out of the fridge and dumped the caramel on top.
They used a spatula to spread the sauce out and make sure it covered every inch of the cookies.
Over the top of that went a layer of melted chocolate chips, followed by a drizzle of caramel.
“Put your dish back in the fridge and cool for an additional 30 minutes to an hour,” Dreaming in DIY wrote on their blog post about the recipe. “After they are nice and chilled, then cut them into squares and serve.”
This is the yummiest, easiest dessert to make and is a much more exciting option than something like plain rice krispie treats.
“You’ll want to make these over and over again,” they wrote on the post. “They will make such a fun new addition to your holiday gift treat plates for neighbors, teachers, relatives, and friends too!”
