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.

    does it even count as gourmet if it's the exact same as the original? wouldnt they WANT to make overall better instead of just replicating it?

    It makes me sad that claire sometimes seems like she doesn't enjoy doing these, I know the majority of us would prefer she do something she likes. You can tell she's a good soul. I love BA vids cos the sense of camaraderie in the kitchen is super homely, I love when the others are in gourmet makes and Claire looks happier when too

  • The Sad Little Toaster

    I'm raging at her calling it care-a-mel

    ojmg claire is my spirit animal

    ive had the "righty tighty blahblah" doesnt make sense conversation before...IT DOESNT

    people say, its because the top of whatever you're turning goes to the
    the bottom goes left, this is why clockwise, counterclockwise are words, beucase left and right dont apply to rotation!

  • stargasm420
    stargasm420 18 days ago

    The correct way to say it is the way it is spelt obviously. Caramel you know with an a in the middle
