Twix Carmelitas

If you like it then you better put a twix in it… I’m pretty sure that’s the popular song by Beyonce right? It sounds a lot better to me, especially around this time a year when candy seems to be popping out of everyone’s ears! And since Twix was my favorite as a kid, well that and Milky Way, and since carmelitas are one of our favorite desserts we couldn’t resist putting them together for the ultimate Twix Carmelitas.

And who wouldn’t want to stick an awesome candy bar in their dessert? I love to do it if we have to go out for ice cream. Yes, it freezes it a bit but for some reason I just love it! It’s so blasted yummy.

The original carmelitas are pretty fantastic on their own, and once I created this recipe my mind started racing with all of the other Twix possibilities so now you all have a lot of crazy desserts to look forward to. And the chocolate bars make them extra melty versus chocolate chips that don’t run as much. YUM! Cannot wait to experiment! If I can keep my grubby mitts out of the bag of course. Oh, Twix how I love thee.
