Homemade Kit Kat bars are simple, quick, and tasty! Making them with the childhood classic flavors of peanut butter and jelly make them unique and even more delicious.
PB & J “Kit Kat” Bars will be your new favorite candy!
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always fantasized about making all of my favorite childhood candy bars at home…I just haven’t wanted to put in the effort. All of those beautiful homemade Snickers Bars and Pay Day Bars I’ve seen online look amazing…and complicated. Yes, I’ll get to them eventually, but I’m sticking with basics for now.
Remember when I made homemade Butterfinger bars? Well then I made them like 4 more times for all of my family and we ate a TON of Butterfingers. That was awesome.
And then…I didn’t make anymore candy bars. Whomp whomp.
Well, let’s change that with a really easy one, ok? Kit Kats!
Not just any Kit Kats though…PB & J Kit Kats! Yes! Who doesn’t love PB & J?!
These bars are really easy. Like, head slap easy. You can make them any flavor, too. Yes, you can forgo the whole PB & J thing and stick with the classic…but then I’d boo you and call you boring and I really don’t like being that ugly.
So, just take your peanut butter, melt it up with some white chocolate (I used those Ghirardelli white melting chocolates), dip in some strawberry wafer cookies…let those set…dip them again…let those set…then you’re done! Yes! Seriously!
This picture where I took a bite out of the top of the Kit Kat without splitting them apart seriously hurt me as much as it hurts you. It reminds me of this… and seriously cracks me up. Sorry I did that. I am.
- 1 cup white chocolate (I used Ghirardelli melting chocolates)
- 1/3 cup creamy natural peanut butter
- Strawberry layered wafer cookies
- In a microwave safe bowl, combine the white chocolate and the peanut butter. Microwave and stir until melted.
- For double Kit Kats, hold two Strawberry wafer cookies side-by-side and dip them the bottoms, tops and sides in the melted peanut butter and chocolate. Set on a piece of parchment to set (it's ok if one or two sides aren't fully covered yet, because you'll want to double-dip them, completely covering any missed spots). Let them set on a piece of parchment. Dip 5 or so sets, being sure to leave a bit of extra peanut butter + chocolate for double-dipping (or you can always melt up some more).
- After they're set, reheat the peanut butter + chocolate until it's melted again. Carefully dip the sides and any spots of the Kit Kats that were missed in the first dipping. Let them set again.
- Note: To make Kit Kats that are 3 or 4 wide (which would be very wide, but whatever floats your boat...), dip each cookie fully individually, then set them side by side on the parchment and squish them together. Let them set before double-dipping any spots that were missed.
- PB & J Kit Kats can be stored in zip-top bags in the freezer indefinitely, or on the counter (out of the sunlight!), wrapped for 1 week.
