Homemade KitKats

My AIM screen name back in the day was kitkatkb494. That is just how much I love Kit-Kats. ALthough I have not logged on AIM for roughly 8 years, my love of kit kats has never faded. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stopped at a 24 hour Duane Reade on the way home from Bobst at like 2 in the morning to buy a King Sized Kit Kat on the way home from a long study session and proceeded to stress-eat the entire thing within an hour. That’s pretty gross of me. But stress does crazy thing to a human being.



When I’m a little less stressed out, I like to make them myself. These are super duper easy. Using the sugar wafers is kind of like cheating. One day I’m gonna make the wafers by myself. But in the mean time, these are still great and crowd pleasing. Use a good quality chocolate for best results. 😉

This recipe was originally written as part of a DIY Candies piece written for NYU Spoon, and was also published on The Daily Meal.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

1 package vanilla sugar wafers
1 package semisweet chocolate chips


1. Place parchment paper or aluminum foil onto a large plate or baking sheet, and place it next to your work space.


2. Empty the chocolate chips into a large microwave safe bowl. Place in the microwave and microwave in increments of 30 seconds, stirring after each increment, until chocolate is melted. Be careful not to burn chocolate.


3. Dip each wafer into the chocolate, using a knife to help coat each side of the wafer. Place each wafer on parchment paper-lined plate.


4. Place plate of kit kats in the fridge or freezer for 30-60 minutes until chocolate has set. EAT. Or put them out at a party like I did where they will disappear very quickly.
