Ingredients

How to make it

  • For crust:
  • Position rack in center of oven; preheat to 375°F. Butter 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Blend flour, sugar, and salt in processor. Add 1/2 cup butter; process until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add egg yolks; process until moist clumps form. Add cocoa powder; blend in using on/off turns. Press dough onto bottom and up sides of prepared pan. Bake until crust is golden brown, about 20 minutes. Cool in pan on rack while preparing caramel filling.
  • For caramel filling:
  • Combine sugar and 1/4 cup water in heavy medium saucepan. Stir over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to high and boil without stirring until mixture is deep amber, occasionally brushing down sides of pan with wet pastry brush and swirling pan, about 7 minutes. Watch carefully,sugar may burn so fast.
  • Remove from heat; add cream (mixture will bubble vigorously). Add butter and stir over low heat until caramel is completely smooth. Scrape in seeds from vanilla bean; stir in salt. Cool 10 minutes. Pour warm caramel into crust. Let stand at room temperature until completely cool, about 45 minutes.
  • For ganache:
  • Bring cream to simmer in small saucepan. Remove from heat; add chocolate. Whisk until smooth. Let stand until slightly cooled but still pourable, about 10 minutes. Pour ganache evenly over caramel filling. Refrigerate tart uncovered until chocolate is firm, about 2 hours. do ahead Can be made 2 days ahead. Cover and refrigerate.

    The only thing I would change is the ganache. Use milk chocolate. I made this for a Christmas dessert and the kids scraped off the bittersweet chocolate ganache. :( They didn't care for it. Other than that, this recipe is delicious!! I'll make it again and again.

    I made this pie tonight. I love Twix. I had to make the crust twice since the first one burnt in half the baking time. On the second try I cut the baking time in half and I also lessened the cocoa to 1 tsp (since a Twix cookie isn't dark in color) and it came out great. This was the first time I have every made caramel and it was easy and came out great. The ganache was easy and came out perfect as well. Altogether the pie is delicious but very rich. I plan to make it again very soon but will use Milk Chocolate since a true Twix is made with Milk Chocolate. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    I have made this at least 6 times in the last 3 months. This is a show stopper! And I think it tastes nothing like Twix. Way, way better, especially if you actually use good ingredients, unlike the 8% cocoa content chocolate they use in their candy bars.

    Somehow I'd not eat the candy bar... but give this to me in a pie and I'd faint with joy. Mmmmm! Everything good.
