I love a Twix bar, I must admit. Twix was probably one of my favourite chocolate bars as a kid, but hey who am I kidding, anything would have pleased my lazy ass 10 year old self. Anything with calories was music to my ears, beats to my heart and tingles in my coochie. Today, I bring you a combination of 2 of my favorite things of all time – the Twix bar meets my arch nemesis, Biscoff Spread. These Vegan Twix Bars are Gluten Free, Dairy Free (duh lol), and sandwiched with a generous layer of Biscoff Spread.
What is Biscoff Spread?
Biscoff Spread, aka Cookie Butter if you’re a Trader Joe’s junkie, is a spread that is made from Speculoos cookie crumbs and is a common alternative to nut butter and chocolate spreads. I’m pretty sure it originated somewhere in Europe (not bothered enough to do the Google research), but trust me when I say it is bloody delightful. I usually end up sticking my fingers into a jar at 2am like a complete and utter monster, but that is a story for another day. Note, Biscoff Spread is NOT Gluten Free, so if you want a GF version of these Twix Bars, make them with the suggestions I’ve made in the next section!
What If I Don’t Like Biscoff or am Gluten Intolerant?
Hey, no worries, if you don’t like Biscoff or if you’re Gluten Intolerant. You are more than welcome to leave it out and you will have a delicious plain Vegan Twix Bar that you can chomp down on. Some other options that you can use include:

How Do I Make Vegan Twix Bars?
Simple as pie, except it’s not pie, it’s a Vegan Twix bar recipe.
Step 1: Combine Almond Meal and a bunch of other fun ingredients (Refined Coconut Oil, Agave Nectar, Vanilla, Sea Salt) until it form a nice dough, and then pat into a 8×8 inch square tin that is lined with baking paper. If you’re insane and love a challenge, don’t line the tin. Instead, you can just rub your face into the tin and call yourself the Twix monster.
Step 2: Freeze the Almond base for 10 minutes and then top with a generous layer of melted Biscoff Spread. Pop back into the freezer whilst you make a simple caramel out of blended Medjool Dates, Almond Butter, Sea Salt, bish bash bosh.
Step 3: Spread caramel onto your Biscoff layer and then pop the tin into the freezer for anywhere between 4-6 hours, ideally overnight.
Step 4: Once frozen, slice into bars and dip in melted Vegan Dark Chocolate.
How Do I Store Vegan Twix Bars?
Well, kept in the freezer these bastards will last till the world ends (which at the current rate we are going at, is September). In the fridge, these bars will store in an air-tight container for up to 1 week. I suggest keeping the ones you want to eat in the fridge so that the caramel remains soft and gooey, and storing the rest for later in the freezer.
What Else Do I Need To Know?
Nothing, bro. Don’t you love how I don’t give you a long ass story about my husband and kids (don’t have either) or about how the winter season really gets me feeling creative and inspired to stick rhinestones on my vagina? Well, onto the recipe then! Hope you enjoy these Vegan Twix Bars with Biscoff Spread as much as my thighs loved them. Peace and love! Don’t forget to hit me up on Instagram and slide into my DMs too, god knows I’m bored as hell.
