Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Twizzlers

Claire Saffitz, a pastry chef and the Senior Food Editor for Bon Appétit magazine, returns to the Bon Appétit test kitchen to attempt to create a healthier, gourmet version of another famous snack. This time, Claire tries to recreate the original cherry-flavored Twizzlers licorice ropes.

“Twizzlers come in just about every flavor under the sun, but Claire only has one goal in mind: make a gourmet version of everyone’s favorite. That’s right — the original, cherry-ish flavored Twizzler.”
