Oh My–This is SO GOOD (and fun!)

I made these AMAZING little things today.  They were wonderful.  Amazing. (Although I already said that.)  And I had a BLAST making them.  The caramel was my favorite part to make (especially since it was mostly dairy free – it just had butter, which could have been changed).  Dipping in chocolate is always fun.  But I have done that before.

Now that I have raved on and on, I am sure you are wondering what I made.

You’re not?



I’ll just tell you anyways.

How’s that?

And you’ll pretend that you are excited?


I made Paleo/Primal Twisk bars!

Oops.  Did it again.  I mean Twix bars.

Isn’t it easy to say it the other way?  I also have an extended family member who used to say it that way (quite a while ago).  I was thinking of you today while I was making these. 🙂

I was so excited to try them once they were done.  And I wasn’t let down.  They were SO SO VERY GOOD.  I stood there on the rug in the kitchen and ate one.

While eating it, the chocolate melted and oozed all over my hands and my (already chocolate smeared – this always happens when I deal with melted chocolate) face.  I am somewhat tired, so I kind of zoned out.

Dad said I looked funny.

I think I did too.

O.K.  And now the pictures.

(Don’t drool.  Or at least try not to.)


The unbaked cookie layer


“I am ready to be baked!”


Baked, and cooling




Mom bought the first bit of egg nog today.  Drake and I love egg nog, and we drink it together in the winter.  Sometimes while we are making dinner.  *Sigh*  I am SO looking forward to winter.  And I am enjoying the first tastes that are already here.


I so need to make a paleo version of this.  This stuff is wonderful.  Even if it isn’t chocolate.






The caramel ingredients in the pan


Lucy being her usual cute self.  She *actually* looked at me when I took her picture.  She usually won’t.


Isn’t she JUST SO CUTE!!!!!  (My family hears this probably about 25 times a day.  Lucy hears it probably ten times that.)


The caramel, now melted




While waiting for the caramel to come to the proper temperature, I discovered that caramel drips are fun to photograph!




*Drip* *Sizzle* (As I am not paying attention and holding my whisk over the hot stove, the caramel drips are burning, instead of returning to the pan.  This has a most unique scent.)


Now we are getting close


Stir!  Don’t stop!


Cooling in the pan


After several hours in the fridge – cutting them up (actually not that difficult)


Melting the chocolate


Cooled, right out of the freezer


Are you ready for this?  You think so?  O.K.  Here it is:




That’s all that I can say.

If you want the recipe, please leave me a comment below, and I will email it to you.


Now I am off to go clean the last residue of chocolate from the bridge of my nose.

    1. They are sweetened with a mixture of coconut sugar and honey. And the chocolate is also sweet, but that would be with regular sugar.

      I’ll send you the recipe.


    1. If you do a search using the words “Paleo [and then the dessert you want to make]” you should be able to find lots of recipes. I certainly have!

      I will send this recipe your way.


  1. Of course I want the recipe you silly girl! Send it my way. Oh and just FYI I have a paleo recipe for eggnog but I much prefer it with cream rather than coconut milk. If you want to try it let me know! Love you sweet girl.
