The original Twix is super delicious treat, however, it is very caloric and not the healthiest either. Why not to experiment and create something that is equally delicious but better for your body?
The Twix is a chocolate bar made by Mars, Inc, which consists of biscuit with other toppings and coatings like caramel and milk chocolate.
The original Twix Stick (58grams) has 286kcal and my home made Twix contains 179kcal (about 50g).
Sometimes not only the calories intake counts, but also the type of ingredients you use in cooking or preparing your meals.
