Twix® muffins

After making these I still had seven Twix® left over. I made my Husband a choc cheese cake for valentines day, and it was a big hit around here, so I thought I could make those Twix® into something cheesy...like muffins??! There was no recipe so I came up with this one myself. I thought they turned out very yummy (had 3 for breakfast this morning, so how bad can they be?) but honestly, it depends what ratio for base to cheese you prefer. These little Babies will be about half to half.

So you take your
7 Twix® (=14 Fingers)

You have to separate the biscuit from the caramel bit with a sharp knife. Really it sounds more difficult than it is!

Then put the biscuit bits into the blender

1/2 cup ground almonds
3 tbsp melted butter
2 tbsp white sugar
mix well, and divide into 18 muffin cases.
preheat Oven to 150°C/300°F and bake the bases for about10 minutes. Then let cool.

Now beat in a large bowl
2 Pcks (à 8 ounces/200gr) of cream cheese (softened) until fluffy. Then add
1/2 cup of white sugar. Mix well, and add
two beaten eggswith
2 tbsp of coffee liqueur. Mix well. Chop up the caramel parts of the Twix®s and add to the Cheese.

Fill on top of your cooled base in the muffin cases and put back into the oven at 175°C/350°F for roughly 30 min. The edges should be light brown.

I hope You enjoy them as much as I did :-)
