The ‘Emergency’ Kit Kat Loaf

by Barry Lewis


Approx 2kg milk chocolate, broken into pieces. ¼ of the chocolate grated.

Approx 60 rectangular ice cream wafers

1 tub of chocolate spread (or other spread)

Here’s my third ’emergency’ super size chocolate bar attempt – the Kit Kat. The idea is like the Snickers and Peanut Butter cup videos before that you can make a super size treat in a flash with every day household items, normally it works…. unless you get a bit excited with the freezer and stick icing in for lettering! Anyhow, it was awesome in the end… follow my tips in the recipe write-up to properly nail this 3 ingredient kit kat bar in a loaf tin!

Ok so just a reminder the ingredients are based on the loaf tin I used, which was a 2 Litre one.

Get your wafers and spread a thin layer of chocolate spread on them, place another on top like a deck of cards line it up with your tin to get it almost the same height – you need to allow for the chocolate top and bottom. Repeat until you have decks of wafer chocolate spread cards! Leave to one side.

I recommend not using the icing technique in my video. If you want to do letters, cut out some letters and wrap them in baking parchment then place in the bottom – my advice, the letters are a hassle and defeat the whole point of this emergency concept! If you do them, remember to put them in the reverse way around!

Melt ¾ of your chocolate in the microwave on 30 second blasts, stirring until smooth. Add in the remaining ¼ chocolate (that is grated) and stir through until the heat in the bowl melts it and becomes smooth again.

Pour into the tin just to cover the bottom and freeze it for 5 minutes just to set the top. Take out the freezer and stack the wafers inside the tin as much as you can but leaving a small border around the edge and enough to top it up at the top of the tin.

Pour the melted chocolate over the top, tap it down to settle it lots of times and get the air bubbles out of it. Freeze for 20 minutes, then put in the fridge for 45 minutes. Allow to come to room temperature for 5 minutes before releasing from the tin. You will need to give it a bit of encouragement with a thin spatula down one long side to help it drop out.

Keep in an air tight container for no longer then a week. Slice and serve up at a Birthday or whatever you like!
