When I crave a cookie, I don’t always know which way to go. Do I want the cinnamony sweet taste of Biscoff or the chocolatey texture of a more traditional candy bar such as Twix? Sometimes, deciding what it is we are craving is hard, and the best solution of all may just be to combine them.

For those times that one taste and texture just isn’t enough, Instagram creator Eloise Head of @Fitwaffle created a Biscoff and Twix cookie mashup — and it just may be the sweet treat you’ve been missing. This tasty recipe requires a short list of simple ingredients and is easy to pull together. It starts out with a homemade shortbread base that is then topped off with a Biscoff spread, and covered in milk chocolate.

The shortbread is a blend of unsalted butter, granulated sugar, and flour that is placed in a square tin and baked for 15-20 minutes. Once that homemade shortbread is baked and cooled, it can be sliced into cookie strips, or fingers, and is ready for the sweet toppings.

The Biscoff topping is simply a slather of Biscoff Cookie Butter added on top by using a piping bag and then a dip in and covering of milk chocolate. And, once the chocolate sets, it’s ready for you to enjoy. It’s truly that simple.

This is a great treat to have around as an afterschool snack and can easily be modified to personal taste. As Twix is chocolate-covered caramel or peanut butter, perhaps that can be added to the blend too if Biscoff spread is not readily available.

Of course, as mentioned in Head’s post, if you are looking to save some time, you can always pick up some shortbread cookies at the grocery store and then just add the toppings. No one will ever know, and they are still semi-homemade!

No matter what variation you choose to go with though, this is one treat that is sure to be snapped up fast.
