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.
I’ll just tell you anyways.
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
*WE INTERRUPT FOR A BREAKING NEWS ALERT*
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.
*WE NOW RETURN TO OUR STORY*
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.
