Grown-up Twix Bars

If there was one halloween candy that I could remake into something just a bit more elevated it would be a Twix bar.  Don’t get me wrong, the original version had my whole Halloween candy loving heart as a kid… but now, something about it falls a bit flat.  Probably the waxy, too-sweet chocolate.
