  • 14 oz soft caramels
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 18 chocolate cream-filled sugar wafer cookies (approx. 1 inch wide and 4 inches long)
  • 1 1/2 lbs chocolate candy coating melts (such as Merckens)


  1. Caramel Layer Preparation:
    • Line a 9×9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, ensuring the foil extends up the sides. Spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray to prevent sticking.
    • In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the soft caramels and heavy cream. Heat in the microwave in 30-second increments, stirring well after each interval, until the mixture is smooth and fully melted.
    • Pour the melted caramel into the prepared pan, spreading it into an even layer. While the caramel is still warm, gently press the wafer cookies into the caramel in two neat rows of nine. Place the pan in the refrigerator to set until firm.
  2. Chocolate Coating:
    • In another microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate candy coating melts in 30-second increments, stirring between each, until completely smooth.
    • Use a pastry brush or the back of a spoon to apply a thin layer of melted chocolate over the tops of the wafer cookies embedded in the caramel. Return the pan to the refrigerator to allow the chocolate to set briefly.
  3. Assemble the Candy Bars:
    • Once the caramel and chocolate have hardened, use the foil overhang to lift the entire slab out of the pan. Peel off the foil and use a sharp knife to cut the slab into individual bars.
    • Dip each bar fully into the melted chocolate, ensuring all sides are coated. Gently tap off any excess chocolate and set the bars on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper to harden.


  • Customization: Personalize your Twix Kat Candy Bars by adding a layer of chopped nuts or toffee bits to the caramel before adding the wafers, or sprinkle them on the chocolate coating before it sets for added texture and flavor.
  • Professional Finish: For those seeking a gourmet touch, temper real chocolate instead of using candy melts. This will give your candy bars a glossy finish and a satisfying snap when broken.
  • Storage: Store the finished candy bars in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator to keep them fresh and delicious.
