No Bake Homemade Twix with Vanilla Wafers tastes like Twix Candy Bars and, literally, takes minutes to make and will satisfy any craving!

I used a popular vanilla-flavored cookie, Nilla Wafers, as the base for my copycat recipe, dipped them in chocolate, and sandwiched a caramel in them.

So Easy. So Yummy!

NO BAKE HOMEMADE TWIX WITH VANILLA WAFERS

The combination of a shortbread cookie, caramel, and chocolate is heavenly tasting and hard to resist. If you love chocolate and caramel together try my Caramel Chocolate Mud Hen Bars, Pecan Shortbread Toffee and Rolo Magic Cookie Bars, Mexican Pecan Chocolate Squares, Chocolate Pecan Shortbread Bars, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Shortbread Bars. You know just to be extra sure you like the combo!

YOU ONLY NEED THREE INGREDIENTS FOR THIS DESSERT

  1. Vanilla wafer cookies. I used the standard Nilla Wafers by Nabisco but you can use any brand.
  2. Chocolate. When I cover anything in chocolate I use Wilton Candy Melts.
  3. Caramel. For the caramels, I used Werther’s Original Soft Caramels. Usually, I always use Kraft caramels, but I kept eating all the caramels before I made the recipe and when I went back to Walmart, they were out of Kraft brand.😅

EASY TO MAKE!

  1. First, unwrap the caramel and using clean hands smush the caramel into a circle the size of your cookie. (Actually, Werther’s caramels are softer and easier to flatten than Kraft caramels.)
  2. Next, melt the chocolate candy melts in the microwave in 30-second increments. Stir at each interval until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  3. Pour the chocolate into a decorated bag or a freezer zip-top bag. Snip the end off.
  4. Pipe chocolate onto the flat side of two cookies. 
  5. Sandwich the flattened caramel between the cookies and press lightly together.
  6. Sit it on parchment or wax paper to dry.
  7. Continue with the next cookie.

I have found this the easiest method. 

Also, work with two wafers at a time. The chocolate hardens too quickly to spread the chocolate first then come back and stick them together.

You can make as many or as few as you want. If you don’t want to use the whole bag of caramels just make what you want to.

Don’t worry. The chocolate sets quickly and they’re ready to eat in no time!

Store your Twix Cookies in an airtight container on the counter. They’re good for about a week before they start getting stale.

Ingredients

  • 11 ounce box Nilla wafers put them in your cart here
  • 4.51 bag caramels Wherther's or Kraft soft caramels
  • 12 ounce bag Wilton chocolate candy melts

Instructions

  • Unwrap the caramel and using clean hands smush the caramel into a circle the size of your cookie.
  • Next, melt the chocolate candy melts in the microwave in 30-second increments.
  • Stir at each interval until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Pour the chocolate into a decorated bag or a freezer zip-top bag. Snip the end off.
  • Pipe chocolate onto the flat side of two cookies. 
  • Sandwich the flattened caramel between the cookies and press lightly together. Sit it on parchment or wax paper to dry.
  • Continue with the next cookie.

Notes

  • You can make as many as you want and save the remaining ingredients for another time. I made about 15 cookies. I don't know how many the whole box of cookies make.
  • According to my crafty internet searching skills, I think they're 88 wafers to an 11-ounce box. So that would be 44 cookies. (You'll probably need 2 bags of caramels if you plan to make all.)

  1. I’m gonna add peanut butter too. I’ve been crazy Peanut Butter Twix and can’t find them. Thank You for this 💜

  2. 5 stars
    I made these for my grandsons and they loved them. Probably just as much or more than the candy bars. They’re ready for me to make them more cookies. And of course I will. Great recipe. Thanks 😊
