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

  • Published on Jun 13, 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.

    I could not agree more about the 'lefty loosey' saying! There is no left or right, just clockwise and anti clockwise. So glad someone else feels the same way.

    Another way to remember how to open stuff: take your right hand, point your thumb in the direction you want the thing to go, then your fingers curl in the direction you want to turn it.

    I wish somebody would do something like this but with vegan and gluten-free foods. There aren’t enough options for reasonable prices...
    Can’t have dairy or gluten but I like watching these. Twix were my favorite.
    Caramel: ˈkærəmel is the correct pronunciation. Everywhere else is a Western ACCENT lol.

    Instead of dehydrating the cookies overnight, what about just cooking them for 1 min longer?

  • Clayton Moore

    Ok, Personally... your goal isn't to simply recreate the task food. It is called "Gourmet Makes," so I don't think it SHOULD taste exactly like a Twix (Sorry Brad). If your goal is to make a gourmet version of it, it should taste better, and all around BE better because you're using better ingredients, fewer ingredients without the added junk and preservatives. Good job. I want to try yours.
