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

  • Published on Jun 13, 2019
  • 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.

    Some tips for people wanting to do this
    Bake time for me was about 17 minutes
    I put my dehydrator on same heat as oven
    If you’ve never tempered chocolate it may take a while to get it right but be patient and wait until you can get it hardened at room temp and then it should have a satisfying snap when cracked

    I'm a graduated engineer and working offshore wind turbine technician, and I so fully 100% agree with Claire on left and right making zero sense when considering circular motions.

    the ultimate pro-tip to replace "righty-tighty lefty-loosey": make a thumbs up with your right hand, point your thumb in the direction you want the thing to move, turn it in the direction that your fingers are curling

    I binged the whole playlist of Gourmet Makes, and the first few videos Brad was a Test Kitchen Manager, then they stopped putting tag on him like his name and position on the newer episodes. What's his position now? Is he a food editor now?

    Funny that she said she wouldn't eat the parts on their own, bc half of the time I eat Twix, I bite off the caramel and then eat the cookie part alone...
