Notes

If you have a conventional oven, increase the temperature by between 10 and 20 degrees Celsius.
If you can't find Nestlé Caramel Top 'n' Fill in your local supermarket, or it isn't available where you live, you can substitute this with any thick store-bought caramel.
These Twix Cookies are just as delicious with either Milk or White chocolate Melts, so feel free to choose whichever you prefer.
Bake the biscuits until they have only the slightest hint of golden brown to them, so that they are light and delicate.
If you live in a hot climate, you may need to set the chocolate layer by placing them in the fridge and storing them in the fridge instead of at room temperature.
Twix Cookies are best stored in an airtight container, at room temperature, for up to 5 days, although they can be frozen if desired, for up to 3 months.
