A giant homemade Kit Kat Bar makes a way better statement than those silly little store-bought ones.
Sure, you can just go to the store and pick up a few teeny, tiny, almost-not-even-there Kit Kats. Or… you can make your own huge, delicious double-decker Kit Kat. If the SUV craze has taught us anything, it’s that bigger is always better (insert sidelong glance). So forget those silly little candy bars and make your own giant homemade Kit Kat with only two ingredients.
Note I said “two” ingredients, because I’m all about that which is easy and efficient, what with being busy all the time. Even when I’m not busy, I’m busy in this bigger-is-better, hectic world we live in. The last time I made two-ingredient candy bars, I got to have all these Nestle Crunches. And that worked out well, so the Kit Kat is next.
You really can’t go wrong when you melt chocolate and add stuff. I’ve tried chocolate and bacon, chocolate and popcorn, chocolate and Girl Scout cookies. This homemade Kit Kat is the same. It’s just melted chocolate and store-bought vanilla wafer cookies. That’s it.
To make the candy bar, I poured melted chocolate into a 12-inch disposable decorating bag. These are relatively inexpensive and available at the craft store. The decorating bag is optional, you may also use a Ziploc bag or a spoon or spatula, but I find piping with the decorating bags much easier. I use disposable decorating bags so often, I buy them by the hundreds. If you snip about an inch from the tip, you can control the spread of the chocolate virtually mess-free. Hence, this candy bar took only minutes to assemble.
Once your giant homemade Kit Kar is ready, they make great gifts for the candy-obsessed. Wrap the candy bar in tin foil and then design your own paper wrapper to mimic the Kit Kat logo. How clever is that? Even better if the recipient’s name it “Kitty” or “Kat,” huh?
