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.

    If Claire Reads this know we love you! <3 Feedback: The show seems to have turned into how to recreate instead of making GOURMET versions! Would love to see Claire going back to making things better rather than stressing over making exact versions.

  17. HailOlympos! says:

    You should try something like a strawberry poptart.

    There’s no chocolate, not tempering involved, and it would be a super yummy treat

  18. David Abraham says:

    clockwise = lockwise
    I gotchu, Claire!

    • RanchoFundo says:

      I think that she meant that you can go “left” while going clockwise (from 6 to 9, for example). I think she just doesn’t know you’re supposed to begin at 12
