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.

    Another way to remember how to open stuff: take your right hand, point your thumb in the direction you want the thing to go, then your fingers curl in the direction you want to turn it.

    Claire is my favorite part if this series

  • bakarangerpinku

    I wish somebody would do something like this but with vegan and gluten-free foods. There aren’t enough options for reasonable prices... Can’t have dairy or gluten but I like watching these. Twix were my favorite. Caramel: ˈkærəmel is the correct pronunciation. Everywhere else is a Western ACCENT lol.

  • FoxyStealth

    Instead of dehydrating the cookies overnight, what about just cooking them for 1 min longer?

    Hi, I'm Morgan, I'm 7 years old. I love your show. I have a suggestion for your gourmet makes. You should do a show on Pez candy. Thank you!

    Gaby is soo thoughtful and nice it’s unbelievable 😘


    Gourmet tootsie pops? Tootsie rolls?

  • Clayton Moore

    Ok, Personally... your goal isn't to simply recreate the task food. It is called "Gourmet Makes," so I don't think it SHOULD taste exactly like a Twix (Sorry Brad). If your goal is to make a gourmet version of it, it should taste better, and all around BE better because you're using better ingredients, fewer ingredients without the added junk and preservatives. Good job. I want to try yours.


    "You want to taste something disgusting?" Chris: .....Yes. Chris is the unsung hero of this show.

    Whats with the sound effects around 8:56 - 9:03 ? 😂 I think it's unnecessary. Rice flour sounded like uncooked rice. 😂

    6:46 Wait. Is reading the ingredients NOT Claire's favorite part?!? The world is currently feeling really flat...or hyperbolically-paraboloid. Claire, you have to tell us, "Is reading the ingredients your favorite part for real?" If you're being held under duress, set one parchment paper divider on fire to show us.

    righty tighty lefty loosey never made sense to me as well for the same reason. For me I think counter clockwise/rewind time to remove/loose. Thats how I remember

  • PhoenixXFeatherz

    She didn't try the peanut butter, which is second best to the original!

  • SumerianCupBearer

    I have the same problem with righty tighty and lefty loosey too. Instead I kind of cup my right hand, stick out the thumb, and whatever direction the thumb is pointing when you rotate your hand is where the force is going
