Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Twix | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 13 June 2019
  • Twix. They’ve been at the heart of a debate that goes back more than five decades. Lines have been drawn so intractable that friendships, relationships, even nations have been ruined. Who could forget the Great Twix Battle between the UK and Finland in 1984? No, we’re not speaking of the Left vs. Right debate. We’re talking about the Conflict of Classification that rages to this day. The age old debate: is Twix candy or cookie? Out of respect for those who came before, we will not take a position. Instead, join Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make a gourmet version of Twix that can hopefully bring peace to this conflict.

        When the gourmet looks better than the original, that's where it's at

                Why would you trim off "excess" chocolate?? There is no such thing as excess chocolate. Such a designation is heresy.

                  yeah, i have the same issue with describing the movement of circular things as right and left. So there is that.

                                    I love Twix because it is one of those candies you could eat in like two pieces I always bite of the cookie with chocolate off of the bottom and then I eat the caramel with chocolate and left over cookie 😻😹😻

                                        One thing I forgot to comment when the video appeared : maybe that layer of chocolate between the biscuit and the caramel make it is for the two two separate?
