This is a blog dedicated to vegan recipes that tickle my fancy. Though the links I post are not necessarily directed to vegan websites, the recipes I post or reblog are (or can easily be modified). Feel free to click the "Personal Artwork" link to view my professional art blog.

homemade twix bars

by spabettie

makes 20-24 cookies

gluten, dairy, egg and soy free, vegan

cookie dough base:

1 cup butter (Earth Balance soy free)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla paste
2 cups flour (gluten free ap)
1/4 cup milk (vanilla almond)

Cream together butter, sugar and vanilla. Stir in flour 1/2 cup at a time, adding milk by the tablespoon as necessary. Combine until dough forms, do not over mix. Knead into a ball, cool in refrigerator 10 minutes. Roll to 1/3 inch thickness and cut into strips, then into bars. Bake at 350 for about 12 minutes, until just golden brown on edges. Cool completely. 

caramel topping:

1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon water
1/4 cup coconut milk*
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon butter (Earth Balance soy free)
2 tablespoons coconut spread (or use more butter)

*carton, not canned coconut milk – or sub milk of choice

In saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, cornstarch, water and milk, stirring until sugar is dissolved and mixture begins to thicken. Remove from heat. Add butter and coconut spread, stirring until combined. Let cool.

Spoon caramel or peanut butter down middle of each cookie; cool in refrigerator to set (the caramel is best if you freeze on the cookie, the warm chocolate makes it melt quick). Melt chopped dark chocolate (10 ounces for 16 cookies), dip the bottom of each cookie in melted chocolate, set on parchment. Spoon chocolate over top of cookie, using spoon to cover entire cookie sides. Return to refrigerator to set.
