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

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.

    Isn't the biscuit base for a twix more like a rich tea than shortbread? Don't forget they were invented in the UK, different kinds of biscuits (cookies for our american cousins)

    If the base is shortbread...isn't that millionaire shortbread? Granted Twix were already 95% of the way there, but the snappy, hardtack-esque cookie is part of the package no? The soft chocolate, smooth caramel and crunchy cookie is how you cover your bases is terms of texture.

    I’m with Claire on the whole “righty tighty, lefty loosey” bit. There’s always one side of the circle going left and the other side going right! I ended up changing it relative to time like a video. Clockwise (forward time) sends it towards (direction of push) counter clockwise (reverse time) sends it backwards (opposite of pushing direction).

    Shes a professional pastry chef who studied in Paris. She is well educated and she knows what she is doing. The thing is she is trying to do a very specific recreation of something made in a factory with machinery which can be hard to recreate. I also think the issue is the program she is on wants her to look distressed etc it was a toxic environment

I mean, unless Molly has an identical twin named Milly and the crew of "Gourmet Makes" mistakes them for the other...
