But I had to make my own candy bars. It had to be easy to throw them together, right? It took a little time to make the bars, but for me, it was worth the extra effort. I will share the recipe this week with you for my homemade Twix bars.
I knew that this would be a recipe that would be fun to make with the kids and couldn’t resist trying it. I waited for an afternoon where we had some time to bake these together. It was a fun (and slightly messy)baking afternoon.
A chocolate muffin makes Monday’s a little happier. Don’t you agree?

1/2 cup Twix bars (I used my own homemade Twix bars)
2 cups flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup almond milk (or your favorite milk)
Position the rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray the muffin tins with nonstick baking spray or line with paper muffin cups.
Cut the Twix into small pieces; set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa; set aside. In another bowl, beat together the sugar and oil for about 2 minutes. Beat in the egg and the milk. Slowly add the flour mixture mixing together until combined. Stop the mixture to scrape the sides of the bowl and incorporate the flour. Gently fold in the Twix pieces.
Fill the prepared tins three-quarters full. (At this point, I added a spoonful of caramel leftover from my homemade Twix bars to every muffin. You can forget that part if you don’t have any caramel around).
Set the pan on a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
