    Preheat oven to 175°C/350°F. Mix butter and confectioner’s sugar in a bowl with a hand mixer for approx. 2 min until foamy. Add vanilla extract and flour, mixing in between each addition until well combined. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper, add the dough, and spread into an even layer. Pierce the dough all over with a fork. Transfer to preheated oven and bake for approx. 30 min. at 175°C/350°F, or until golden brown around the edges. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

  • Step 4/4

    Roughly chop chocolate and melt 2/3 in a bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Remove from pot and stir in remaining chocolate until melted. Submerge cooled bars into melted chocolate until fully coated on all sides. To make the classic Twix pattern, gently press a fork on top of the bar to create grooves. Transfer to a wire rack and store in a cool and dry place. Enjoy!
