What 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.
Well, 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 typo—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.
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.
These are super easy and truly very yummy. Have fun turning your kitchen into a chocolate factory this week. xo. Emma

Seems like a really delicious recipe, can’t wait to try!
I’ve found matcha Kit-Kats at LeeLee International Supermarket for six dollars a bag. They are an awesome grocery store chain in Arizona. There’s one in Tucson, one in Peoria, and one in Phoenix.
World Market (Cost Plus)has them sometimes
Yum! These look great, definitely one to try with my cousins over half term.
the green tea kitkats are sold at a store in Chinatown in Chicago
So excited to try this! I LOVE KitKats and I also love an easy recipe. Thanks Emma!
Yummy…These kit kat bars are to be definitely tried at home! 🙂

Yumm!! Looks good!
I am living in Japan now, so Green Tea Kit Kats are pretty common here. As are so many other flavors! The seasonal cherry blossom one should be coming out next month! Each area of Japan also has their own flavor of Kit Kat. I have tried soy sauce and wasabi ones too!
I could send you a couple packs of green tea and other varieties, if you wanted. 🙂
I’ve seen the green tean KitKat at CostPlus World Market. I noticed they have the orange flavor
I live in Japan, and I have to admit that green tea flavor is awesome! But you can make it if you buy some matcha powder in any asian shop! (maybe you can even buy the proper matcha kit kat; but I guess It’d be fun to make 🙂
Sometimes we find Green Tea Kit Kats at Cost Plus World Market (and they also have dark chocolate mint flavor). But the most interesting ones so far were the passion fruit flavored ones we bought at an Asian Market. I would add a picture but I don’t know if I can here. Bought them for my husband for Christmas. Delish!
I can’t believe that I didn’t stumble on this post sooner!!
These look amazing – I will have to try and recreate them !!!
Want butter kitkat, yum! They made chunky ones over here in the UK for a while
Oooh, those look good. Also, I can almost always find the green tea kitkats at Uwajimaya, the Japanese grocery store. (I’m in Seattle, so not sure if you have them where you are.)
Happy Valentine’s Day to me! These truly get me excited. Definitely next up on the diy menu.
Love your blog!
My boyfriend LOVES kit kat bars and I may or may not participate in the upcoming Valentine’s day this year just to make him these little guys!
Green tea flavour is my FAVOURITE! My boyfriend has friends in Japan and they just sent us a whole bunch of different flavoured mini kit kats. From black bean sandwich (so strange), to strawberry (yum!), to spicy (I’m too scared to try it).
Most Asian food stores do carry flavoured kit kats and since the green tea isn’t too wild and there is a matcha trend here (in Canada) you can find them pretty easily. Just keep your eyes on the look out for Asian markets and hopefully you’ll get to try it someday soon!
These look great! And yes! You MUST try the york peppermint patties:)
These are so adorable – love the tri-color! Probably making these for my office for Valentines Day. Thanks for the recipe!
Green tea kit cats are the best!!!! I have only had them once, and they were amazing! (:
