Homemade Kit Kat Bars

Homemade kit kat barsWhat is it with making homemade candy bars? I think in my mind I'm sort of turning the house into a chocolate factory every time. 

I am Willy Wonka but without the Oompa-Loompas or a psychedelic boat or an elevator that goes sideways or really any elevator, I guess. Okay, I'm not Willy Wonka. How to make homemade kit kat barsWell, at any rate. I had a lot of fun making my own Twix bars. So, I thought next I'd give Kit Kat bars a try. These ended up being even easier to make than the Twix bars! You only need two ingredients. Yep, that's not a typoβ€”only two ingredients.

I made my Kit Kat bars a three different flavors just for fun. But also have you seen how many different flavors of Kit Kat bars there are?! I would LOVE to try the green tea flavor. That sounds very interesting. I've never seen that particular flavor sold anywhere here in the USA (anyone else ever seen it?) so maybe I'll have to invent my own next time I make these.How to make kit kat bars at home!Homemade Kit Kat Bars

sugar wafer cookies
chocolate chips (I used dark, peanut butter and white + red food color)

Melt the chocolate. The easiest way to do this is in the microwave. Simply place the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl, microwave on high for 30 seconds, remove and give it stir. Repeat until the chocolate is melted. If you find that your chocolate is too thick and therefore difficult to work stir 1-2 teaspoons of oil into the chocolate (vegetable, canola or peanut oil work well since they don't have a strong flavor).

Dip a wafer cooking in the melted chocolate, place on wax paper. Dip another cookie and place it right next to the first, so the chocolate in between the cookies blends together. I made my Kit Kat bars out of three wafer cookies each. Repeat until you've coated them all. Allow the chocolate to set before eating.Homemade kit kat These are super easy and truly very yummy. Have fun turning your kitchen into a chocolate factory this week. xo. Emma
