Twix Blondies

Twix Blondies are sweet and chewy with bits of crunchy shortbread throughout. You can even top them with flaked sea salt for a perfect sweet & salty bite!

Twix Blondies are what sweet caramel dreams are made of! Take a buttery, brown sugar blondie, load it up with tons of chopped Twix Bars, sea salt and chocolate chips. They’re chewy with crunchy bits of shortbread baked inside!

This is an older recipe of mine that I posted back in 2010. I have been on a kick going through my old posts and updating the pictures. Turns out that way back in 2010 I was a little confused on what a “good picture” was.

Anyhow, I knew these candy bar blondies deserved another day in the sun.

Because they’re good. And you’ll like them.

Plus, I’m all in whenever Twix are involved. Except, can we just chat a quick minute? This is a PSA to the makers of the TWIX bar. Twix are classic and fantastic and everyone loves them. BUT, Twix makers, how about a little sprinkle of sea salt on top. I mean SALTED CARAMEL TWIX? Why isn’t that a thing in the world?

So for the sake of humanity I went ahead and sprinkled a little extra sea salt on top of these. It’s the right move.

Twix Blondies are sweet and chewy with bits of crunchy shortbread throughout. You can even top them with flaked sea salt for a perfect sweet & salty bite!

They are super easy, actually…and pretty knock-out. The blondie itself could actually be the base recipe for ANY add-in candy bars…I mean Snickers, Milky Way, it’s really up to you!

Of course I am a huge Twix girl, and the crunchy shortbread pieces the Twix leave in the blondies is one of my favorite parts!

Chopped Twix Bars for Twix Blondies

Try not to eat too many Twix beforehand though. Turns out one CAN have too much of a good thing…just speaking from personal experience.

They bake up perfectly, but make sure that you let them cool completely before cutting into bars! And like I said a little flaked sea salt on top is a good idea.

I’m really glad I revisited this recipe!

Hope you enjoy!


Twix Blondies

  • Author: Cookies & Cups
  • Yield: 24 bars 1x


  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups light brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon flaked (or coarse) sea salt
  • 2 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 30 mini Twix bars coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Optional – more flaked sea salt for sprinkling


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 9×13 baking pan with foil and coat with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment combine the butter and brown sugar on low speed. Add in the eggs, vanilla, baking powder and salt and mix until smooth.
  3. With the mixer still on low add the the flour and mix until just combined.
  4. Stir in the Twix and chocolate chips until evenly incorporated.
  5. Spread batter into prepared pan and bake 25-30 minutes until the edges are set and the center is almost set.
  6. Cool completely before cutting into bars.


You could also make this recipe without the stand mixer. A bowl and a wooden spoon will work just fine!

*Be sure to cool the bars completely before cutting. I often chill mine to make the bars pretty.

    Yummy looking brownies! I don't care if people get mad… I stand there and put my card back in my wallet. Once I just held it in my hand to do a quick getaway and got to my car and thought I dropped it! Luckily it fell into a sack, but boy did I have a panic moment!!! Now I just smile at the person trying to root me out of the way and laugh and say I'm almost done. No one has beat me up yet so I guess that works 🙂


    totally gonna have to try the twix blondies…my favorite candy bar paired with one of my favorite bar cookies = perfection!

    Haven't had a Twix bar in years…..but I sure do like them. Nice work. I also dislike the folks who don't understand personal space 'cause I need lots of it.

  4. Jenn @ BentoForKidlet

    I share your personal space pet peeve. Why do people think that getting all up in my area is going to somehow make me move faster? It's more likely to tick me off enough to make me slower 😛

    Thanks for the recipe it looks amazing!

  5. Kristan

    Ooohh…these look sooo good!! I have a recipe for Butterfinger Blondies that I was wanting to try this week…I hope they turn out as good as yours! My shopping pet peeve is when the cashier comments on my purchases…I mean, seriously…if I have to hear "Oh boy, someones making a bunch of cakes!!" from the Walmart lady one more time…

  6. Joanne

    Mmm yes. Champion sweet tooth? Right here. Too bad I have no leftover Easter candy. These look amazing.

    My shopping pet peeve? People who dig around for exact change for five minutes only to realize, no they don't actually have that dime that they thought they did.

  7. Diane {}

    They look so good, and I like everything salted!
    shopping pet peeve? when they ask if I want paper or plastic and when I say paper they seem annoyed.

  8. Brisbane Baker

    Great way to make use of all of the discount chocolate!

    I too went discount shopping for lindt bunnies and also encountered B). I mean how hard is it to wait?

    Oh well, maybe some people just need lessons in queue etiquette 🙂

  9. Raina

    Those are freakin amazing! You amaze me with your wickedly decadent desserts! Love your Target stories!! I am really annoyed when people do that to me in line also. Last time that happened to me, I got so flustered I dropped twenty dollars and did not notice it. Luckily, the salesgirl noticed and called me back.

  10. Ingrid

    Do you see me jumping up and down over here? I love sweet and salty!! I do!

    I feel ya on the check out issue. I've been known to get a bit "ghetto" when being shoved out the door by the guy/girl behind me. 🙂

  11. Molly

    Besides a straight up Hershey bar, Twix would be my candy bar of choice. These are usually the first thing I steal out of my kids' Halloween/Valentine's Day/Easter candy stash. So it's easy to say that these bars look great!

  12. Chey can cook! (and more)

    Yum! I hate the people who try to move you too quickly! I also hate when the person in front of me doesn't put the little stick in between their order and what will be mine, and when I grab the stick thing so I can start putting my order on the belt, they give me a dirty look!

  13. Monica H

    I answered F- yay we can still be friends!

    I don't really eat a lot of candy, but Twix are on my fave list. love them! These look really good too!

  14. grace

    the checkout line is always a nightmare for me–if i haven't picked the slowest line, then i'm being crowded by the person behind me. that's why i always do the self-checkout when at all possible!
    on a brighter note, these bars look AMAZING. excellent leftover usage. 🙂

  15. Taste of Beirut

    I agree cutting this with some sea salt is brilliant; yum!
    I try to go to groceries stores when it is slow or the ethnic grocer who hardly has line to avoid getting angry or irritated.

  16. Cookie Sleuth

    Looks delicious! BTW, I encounted "C" at the grocery store yesterday. What really frustrated me was that I let her go in front of me because she just had two things, and I didn't want to make her wait for me and my entire cart to go through.

  17. Shauna from Piece of Cake

    Huminuh, huminuh. Delicious!

    I have too many shopping pet peeves to mention. And shopping with a toddler, as I did earlier today, well, that just makes you hate people and shopping in general.

  18. Cinnamon-Girl

    Twix are one of my all time favorites! These are so irresistible! I have a serious sweet tooth – champion for sure.

  19. Leslie

    lol lol lol..I am BIG on personal space. I CANT stand when people get in I dont get in theirs.Funny story…I was in the post office a few months back..I stood there, my normal "far away" from the person in front of me, and there was this elderly lady literally up my ass and every time the person in-front of me moved up on line..she would say to me, "you better move closer or someone will take your place". I was polite the first 4 times she told me to move closer to the person in front of me..but the last time I snapped!

  20. bridget {bake at 350}

    Whoa! Those look incredible!!!

    Yeah, I hate that at the store. I try to use cash, so trying to stuff change and a mile long receipt in my wallet take just a MINUTE!!!

    My pet peeve in the grocery store is when the person in front of me thinks every one of their items needs 6 inches of clearance on every side. They have 7 items, but they are taking up the entire "belt." STACK people!

    Oh, and talking on cellphones at the check out….hate that!

  21. CookiePie

    omg I HATE people like that. If they catch me at the wrong time I give them a sharp look and say, "Excuse me, just a second!" Not yelling, but on the loud side so other people can hear. It kind of shames them.

    Meanwhile, YUM on those blondies!!!! YUM!!!

  22. Megan

    These look eggcellent! Hehe, get it? Egg-cellent, because it was Easter candy.
    OK, sorry. I can get a bit corney. 🙂
    The blondies look killer and I would love to have a pan of those right now. Even if it is 7 in the morning. They would go great with this cup of coffee.

  23. Jaime

    yum!! i was in target and was behind this old lady who took forever. she had to make sure you got credit for her 2 coupons…when she handed the clerk 3. there was 2 coupons for 1 item so then she had to pick which one she wanted to use. then she asked the cashier to put the dog food in a plastic bag so she could transport it more easily (the rest of her items were in a reuseable grocery bag). and then after she walked away, she came back and said "hey don't i get a nickel back for bringing my own bag??" LOL i was thinking to myself "ummm you still used a plastic bag!"

  24. oneordinaryday

    Oooh. Yummy idea. I have a bunch of milky ways leftover from something. Wonder how they'd work in a blondie? Wheels are turning…

  25. Josie

    Amazing, just tried making these but used mars bars (or milky way in america I think!?) and YUM, couldn’t wait for them to set though, I also put marshmallow on the top!

    1. shelly

      You could definitely do this recipe in a 9×13 pan and cut them into squares. The crust wouldn’t go up the sides of the pan, but it would be a great bottom crust!

  26. E.M.

    These look delicious and I cannot wait to try them…they are in the oven right now. Just wanted to point out that you have vanilla as an ingredient, but it isn’t listed in the steps 🙁 Unfortunately, this got left out while baking because I just followed the steps and never checked to make sure I had used all the ingredients. Here’s to hoping they still turn out okay for the holiday party tonight….

  27. Maria

    Are “mini” Twix bars the same “fun” size? I have an assortment of sizes leftover from Halloween and want to make sure I am using the correct amount. Do you have an approximate measurement of candy bar used?

  28. Barbara Dulong

    I am wondering why the printable version of the recipe is different from this one…in the printable, butter not melted, and it calls for extra Twix bars as a topping, along with a drizzle of chocolate…

    1. Shelly

      Yes, the changes are minor. This was an older recipe that I updated and tried to simplify slightly without changing! I thought I deleted the link to the old recipe!! haha!

  29. Barbara Dulong

    Whoops…just re-read printable recipe…butter IS melted…so, the only difference is the topping of crushed Twix bars and melted chocolate.

  30. Leah

    This was the perfect way to use up all the extra candy from Halloween! I made these with Twix, added a few Milky Way’s because I was a little short of Twix. Took “most” of them to work and they were a hit! I didn’t dare leave them at home…with only me and the hubby that would have been dangerous.

    Everyone raved, thank you so much! I think these would be awesome with some peanut butter cups added also!

  31. Tonia

    Cannot wait to make this recipe, how long would you say these last for? And is in an airtight container the best way to store these, at room temperature?
