Why Make These Tasty Vegan Twix Treats?
If you’re craving a quick dessert, this is the perfect thing to stash up on in your freezer! I love making a huge batch and then pop one or two in my mouth after a meal for a guilt free dessert. And the layers are absolutely perfect!
Guilt Free and Gluten Free Vegan Twix Bites
- ¾ cup Coconut Flour
- ¾ cup Almond Flour
- ⅓ cup Coconut Oil, melted
- ⅓ cup Maple Syrup, warmed
- 1 cup Creamy Almond Butter
- ⅓ cup Maple Syrup
- ¼ cup Coconut Oil
- 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 3 bars of Vegan Dark Chocolate
- ½ tbsp Coconut Oil
- Preheat oven to 350*
- Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
- Line a bread pan with parchment paper and pack down mixture into base.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
- Remove once done and place in fridge for 10-15 minutes to cool while you prep the caramel layer.
- Mix all the ingredients together in a small saucepan over the stove on low to medium heat and cook until liquid (~2-3 minutes).
- Remove from burner and add to your shortbread layer.
- Place in freezer for at least 2-3 hours.
- Prep your chocolate layer once the rest has set in the freezer.
- Break you chocolate bar into pieces and add to a microwave safe bowl.
- Add the coconut oil on top.
- Then microwave together in 30 second intervals, mixing with a spoon in between.
- You should only have to do it twice until all the chocolate has melted.
- Remove the set shortbread and caramel layers from the baking sheet and cut into little bites. I cut mine into 4 columns and 3 rows to make a total of 40 bites.
- Place a cooling rack such as this over a large baking sheet to create a drip system.
- Then dunk each twix bite into the melted chocolate using 2 forks, coat completly, and then place on the rack. Excess chocolate will drip down into the baking sheet.
- Continue until you have coated them all.
- Place the baking sheet in the freezer then for everything to set. Minimum of 15 minutes.
- Remove from the fridge and transfer to a glass storage container.
- Grab and a bite and enjoy!
Extra Notes & Tips
- For the shortbread layer, keep an eye on it because you want to ensure the top doesn’t burn. I use my Ninja Foodi Toaster Oven to bake so it cooks a lot faster.
- Make sure to use unrefined, cooking coconut oil for the best flavor.
- When dunking your Twix bites, be sure to move fast. I made this in the hot Texas summer so they started to melt pretty quickly so I did it in batches of two.
- Store your Twix bites in the freezer for the best crunchy bite and perfect consistency!
