Giant Twix

When a normal-sized chocolate bar just won't do

Ingredients

  • 3 tins coronation caramel
  • 330 grams butter
  • 220 grams sugar
  • 90 grams egg yolk
  • 600 grams plain flour
  • 120 grams skimmed milk powder
  • 70 milliliters water

Steps

  1. 1. First make a box that is roughly 40 centimeters long, 8 centimeters wide and 8 centimeters tall out of strong 
cardboard.
  2. 2. Place thinner cardboard or a silicone mat so it touches the base but runs up both 
sides, creating a semi-circular bottom.
  3. 3. Make the biscuit by beating the sugar and butter together. Then add in the egg yolks, milk powder, water and lastly gradually incorporate the flour.
  4. 4. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to about 2 centimeters thick and bake i the oven for 
10-15 minutes at 150C.
  5. 5. Meanwhile, pour some of the caramel mix into the bottom of the lined rectangular box and set in the fridge.
  6. 6. Once the shortbread is cooled, cut into the same shape as the box and place one 
piece on top of the caramel. Smear some caramel on top of this, and place a 
second biscuit on top.
  7. 7. Temper the milk chocolate and cover the base lightly with this.
  8. 8. Turn the Twix out and sit it, chocolate side down on two ramekins. Pour the remaining chocolate over the top of the Twix to cover.
  9. 9. Get some gold paper and wrap the Twix bars up - crimp the edges and serve.
