One of my local cheapie shops has a great selection of sweet stuff, and recently they’ve had out a big range of different Kit Kats. Normal, Chunky, mint, orange, green tea, and all shades in between; it’s Kit Kat heaven. And best of all, it’s all cheap! What else am I to do but make something with this harvest?
I wanted to blend the chocolate bars with something that wouldn’t damage its lightness, and wouldn’t overwhelm all the different Kit Kat flavours I wanted to use. I also wanted to keep the wafer crunch, I didn’t want it to go soggy. So I decided to go with fudge.
Fudge makes a great vehicle for smaller, more delicate confectionaries. If you use the right base, it can accent your chosen sweet perfectly. For my Kit Kat Crunch Fudge, I decided to go with white chocolate.
This fudge couldn’t be any easier to make, it’s just 3 ingredients; lots of white chocolate, 1 tin of condensed milk, and Kit Kats!! I’ve used 4 different Kit Kats in my fudge (milk, dark, white, and cookies & cream), but you can use as many or as little flavours as you like.
This is a microwave recipe, so please make sure you have a large enough microwave-safe jug or bowl for melting and mixing. Mine is 1Lt, and it was just big enough.
Kit Kat Crunch Fudge
Time: 10 min preparation, plus setting time
Yield: 32 squares
- 500g white chocolate (broken into squares if using block)
- 1 tin 395/400g condensed milk
- 8 x 4 Finger Kit Kats, chopped, 332g total weight – I used 2 Milk Chocolate, 2 Dark Chocolate, 2 White Chocolate, and 2 Cookies & Cream.
Grease and line a 27 x 18 cm slice pan, set aside.
In a microwave-safe jug or bowl, place in white chocolate and pour in condensed milk. Microwave for up to 2 min and stir at 20 second intervals until combined and flows/oozes together.
Stir in 2/3 of the chopped Kit Kats until marbled or combined. Pour fudge mixture into the slice pan and spread evenly. Pour the remaining 1/3 of the Kit Kats on top of the fudge and press down. Refrigerate until set.
Notes: Microwave times vary depending on your microwave. I have a lower wattage, so it took longer. If you want a darker fudge, stir the Kit Kats in for longer. If you want it more swirly, just give it a quick stir.
