Sleepy and brain starting to hurt but still alive and kicking. I have been MIA because of work. As I'm learning and getting used to my new job, it seems like it takes twice as long for me to get stuff done. But it is getting better. In the mist of my crazy schedule, it was the Husband's birthday. I figured I should nice and do something for him :D I didn't want to have a normal birthday cake and since halloween was coming up, I figured why not make a chocolate bar.
I found some images of a person making a giant Kit kat bar on Pinterest. I love Pinterest!
Giant Kit Kat Bar
(Influenced from The Meta Picture)
3 Bags - 8 ozs of Milk Chocolate (I just used the hersey brand)
1 1/2 Pack of Vanilla Wafers
*Please keep in mind, it depends on big the pan you are using. I was using a Pullman Pan 9x4x4
Pullman Pan 9x4x4
Wax paper (but I used foil bad choice)
Piece of cardboard with the same with and length of the pan
- Take the cardboard and cut out the word Kit Kat. I made sure it took almost the whole width of the pan. Place the cut out cardboard on the bottom of the pan. Make sure you spell it backwards
- Line the pan with wax paper over the cardboard letters.
- Melt one bag of chocolate in the microwave for one minutes. Take it out of the microwave and stir it to make sure all of the chocolate is melted. You may have to reheat multiple times to get everything melted. I first did one minute and then fifteen seconds if the chocolate wasn't fully melted.
- Pour the chocolate on the bottom of the pan.
- Layer the wafers. I laid the wafers parallel to the pan.
- Keep stacking the wafers until it fills the pan. It took about 36 wafers.
- Melt the second bag of chocolate.
- Pour the chocolate over the wafers. Make the chocolate covers the side.
- Due to the size of the pan, I had to user the 3rd bag of chocolate. You may not need to depending on the size.
- Place in the refrigerator (I know you are not suppose to do that with chocolate but I have the worse luck with the stuff).
- Chill for 2 hours or until it is firm.
- Remove from the pan and serve.
This was a misadventure mainly because it wasn't smooth like it should be and you can't see the letters. I would use thicker cardboard next time.
