A rich and decadent chocolate fudge dip swirled with caramel and crushed Twix bars makes for a truly amazing dip or dessert! Get ready to make a few batches of this Twix Dip because everyone is going to inhale this!
What is a Twix Bar?
There is nothing better looking to me than the combination of chocolate, caramel, and buttery shortbread. Well, my family is better looking but I can’t eat them so this is second best.
So naturally, I crave Twix candy bars. Just like potato chips, I can’t eat just one so I am always so grateful that there are two bars in that package.

So what’s Twix Cookies made of?
To love a Twix you have to love all the components. All three of them! Three simple ingredients that come together in perfect harmony.
- Creamy milk chocolate
- Buttery caramel
- Crispy shortbread cookie
If you prefer to call the shortbread cookie a biscuit like the British do, that’s ok as well. I don’t care if you call it “ridiculous crunchy layer” as long as I can eat it!!
Because I am a dark chocolate fan, I was very happy when they came out with a dark chocolate version of my beloved candy bar. Do you prefer milk or dark chocolate?
Thinking about Twix all day gets me in the mood to eat more than a few bars! It also got me thinking that I might want to make a dip to a party that mimics the Twix bar so I don’t’ have to sneak my mini bars in my pocket and sneak-eat them in the garage while pretending to get more sodas.
A Twix only has three ingredients so a dip is pretty easy to throw together! I’m going to start with my typical dessert dip base of cream cheese and powdered sugar. I have used this base in my other dips like my Drunken Cherry Garcia Dip, my Boozy Banana Cream Pie Dip, and my Oatmeal Cream Pie Dip!
So now that we have the base, next stop, chocolate!
What’s the best way to add chocolate to your dip to mimic the Twix cookies?
You can add in straight cocoa powder, or stir in melted chocolate if you want. The only problem with the latter is the cold dip base. Cold cream cheese will cause the melted chocolate to solidify and any residual water in the dip will also cause it to seize up so this is not a good idea!
I like to go with another option, which adds creaminess to the dip, and is super easy: chocolate pudding. Chocolate FUDGE pudding to be exact. I haven’t found a box of dark chocolate pudding yet so I usually go with the fudge flavor.
If you are the type to snub your nose up at boxed instant pudding, feel free to make your own from scratch, but I really do love a good shortcut so I’m cool with the instant pudding.
Just make sure you use less milk than the package instructions so the dip doesn’t get too loose. It’s a dip and not Twix soup. Although a Twix soup does sound interesting to me…
The rest of the Twix dip comes together pretty easily. With the chocolate fudge pudding, cream cheese, and powdered sugar already in the bowl, add some chopped up Twix bars and a drizzle of caramel sauce and we are done! Again with the caramel sauce, feel free to make your own like I did in my Pumpkin Apple Punch or you can do another shortcut and buy some already made🙂
FAQ about Twix Dip:
- Q: Can I make this ahead of time?
A: Yes, you can! Just add the chopped Twix bars on the top just before serving so they don’t get soggy.
- Q: Can I use vanilla pudding?
A: Yes, you can. I would miss the chocolate but you can always add chocolate chips or more chopped Twix bars to compensate for it.
You might be thinking that those few pieces of Twix bars in the dip are not enough shortbread to get the true texture of a Twix in the dip so I use shortbread cookies to inhale, I mean scoop, the Twix dip in my mouth. These shortbread cookies complete the whole picture by adding crunch and that distinct buttery flavor!!
Get your Twix on in a classy way with a bowl of this Twix dip! Decadent chocolate, creamy caramel, and crispy shortbread cookies all wrapped up in one beautiful bowl!
