Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Twix | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit

Twix. They’ve been at the heart of a debate that goes back more than five decades. Lines have been drawn so intractable that friendships, relationships, even nations have been ruined. Who could forget the Great Twix Battle between the UK and Finland in 1984? No, we’re not speaking of the Left vs. Right debate. We’re talking about the Conflict of Classification that rages to this day. The age old debate: is Twix candy or cookie? Out of respect for those who came before, we will not take a position. Instead, join Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make a gourmet version of Twix that can hopefully bring peace to this conflict.

    Why would you trim off "excess" chocolate?? There is no such thing as excess chocolate. Such a designation is heresy.

  • Sam

    yeah, i have the same issue with describing the movement of circular things as right and left. So there is that.

  • Xmetal

    twix has always been one of my favs ... along with reeces and maybe kitkats ... oh (lol) and white chocolate Hersey with little white chips

    Claire explaining what tempering chocolate is is the equivalent of Brad explaining what allicin in garlic is

    I love Twix because it is one of those candies you could eat in like two pieces I always bite of the cookie with chocolate off of the bottom and then I eat the caramel with chocolate and left over cookie 😻😹😻

      Sara Samaletdin since Claire hates chocolate work so much I would like to see a Flake bar, which are also utterly delicious.

    I wanted her to coat one with chocolate and then use a hair dryer to blow on them. That would remove excess chocolate and give that wavy pattern.
