Copycat Kit Kat Bars
yield: 96 PIECES
I love Kit Kat candy bars so much, I created these bite-sized treats to enjoy anytime! I love creating copycat recipes of my favorite foods!
3/4 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
25 regular sized marshmallows
12 oz milk chocolate morsels
1 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
5 cup rice krispies cereal
11 oz butterscotch morsels
1 cup peanut butter morsels
In a large mixing bowl, add marshmallows, milk chocolate morsels, and baking chocolate. Set aside.
In a large pot, bring to a boil the sugar, cream, and butter (over medium-high heat). Once boiling, continue to boil for 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Pour hot mixture over marshmallows and chocolate. Using an electric mixer, beat until chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth (about 2 minutes).
Melt butterscotch and peanut butter morsels together in microwave bowl for one minute. Stir and heat at 30-second intervals until fully melted.
In a large bowl, combine rice cereal, melted butterscotch and about 1/3 of the chocolate mixture. Mix completely.
In a parchment paper lined 13x9 baking dish, pour 1/3 of chocolate mixture onto the bottom, spreading with a knife until the bottom of the dish is covered. Top with cereal mixture. Press firmly. Pour remaining 1/3 of chocolate mixture over cereal, spreading with a knife. Allow to set up in the refrigerator, about 1-2 hours. Remove and cut into bite-sized pieces. ENJOY!
