Japanese Baked Kit Kats (Pudding Flavour)


Finally, my precious, this is in my hands. As the release of these bakeable kit kats went viral on the internet it left me in a pool of my own tears as I didn’t think it would make it to Australia. If you didn’t already know I have a bit of a kit kat obsession – I have eaten 26 different types and wrote about them in these two posts. The hobby of collecting kit kats became too expensive in Adelaide but I caved when I spotted the baked pudding kit kats at the Kawaii store in Chinatown ($7.35). I bought it without a second thought :P

Maybe buying them on a 40 degree day wasn’t the smartest move as they ended up deformed and melty – oh well they’re going in the oven anyway ;) Eating them by itself was like a normal white chocolate kit kat but I only took one bite and threw the rest in the oven. Totally not wasting that crispy goodness.

The instructions says to bake them on aluminum foil in a toaster oven (1000W and not preheated) for 2 – 2.5 mins. Bit unsure what that meant for Australian ovens so I fiddled around with the baking method a bit. My first try was setting the oven to grill mode where I watched it bubble away until I could see a crispy burnt top (a few mins).

I was actually surprised how good these tasted as it can be a hit or miss with Japanese kit kats. It was a lot like creme brulee with it’s crispy caramelised top, a crunch from the wafer surrounded by melted white chocolate that was like a gooey custard center.

The second method I tried was just baking it which made it like a cookie – kinda like a sugar cookie where it crumbles away at each bite.

In the end I liked the first method of grilling it as you get that crunchy caramelised top. Japan you so crazy but this is too awesome and totally worth the $7 :D I ate half the bag on the first day and then about 3 kit kats at once after that muhahaha.
