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.

So Claire, the way figured out to understand righty tighty lefty loosey is thinking about the thing like the steering wheel of a car. If that thing was the steering wheel, which way do you turn it to go right and which way do you turn it to go left. If you happen to see this I hope it helps

She is super hot. Has that look in her eye that she'd be a bit psycho, but hot enough for it to be worth it.

Would it be fine if I used compound chocolate for coating the twix instead of tempering the chocolate?

Claire being confused on the whole righty tighty left loosey thing was me for the exact same reasons, but fear not! All is not lost! If the circle was a wheel, the direction you would turn it to make it roll right is righty tighty (clockwise) and the direction to make the wheel roll to the left is lefty loosey (counterclockwise). You’re not alone in your confusion Claire!

It might be a left-handed mindset thing, but Righty-tighty lefty-loosey has always confused me too. Clock-wise/counter clock-wise is much more clear.
