焼きキットカット (Baked Kit Kat) (Japan)

Just over a month ago the Internet was all a-buzz with news of some new Japanese Kit Kats. But these weren’t just any old unusually flavoured chocolate snacks from the far East… no, these were something completely new… BAKED KIT KATS!!

I got a little bit excited when I heard about them, and wondered if they would still be around in time for my visit to Japan next month. Turns out, I didn’t have to wait that long though as I have an amazing friend who made it her personal mission to find them for me!

So, here we go… presenting… BAKED KIT KATS!

They come in two flavours – original and pudding (プリン) flavour.

The slogan on the packaging is cute – 焼いておいしい (yaite oishii) – meaning something like ‘bake ‘n’ tasty’.

Let’s see shall we… the instructions look simple enough…

You could probably use a regular oven, but my almost-Japanese-style toaster oven seemed like a safer option as they only require 2 minutes in the oven on quite a low heat.

You’re supposed to put them on foil I realised afterwards, but I don’t know if it matters.

So, how to they measure up to regular Kit Kats? You have to leave them to cool a little as they get very hot, but the flavour is good. The pudding ones are very sweet, and I think I burnt the regular ones a little bit, but overall I was very pleased with them. They’re sort of caramelised on the outside and then still wafery inside – quite unusual!

It you’d like to see how the professionals bake their Kit Kats, check out this official video:

And if simply baking them isn’t enough, why not try putting them on top of a pizza or in a sundae?! It’s already been done in Japan…  (and the sundae looks delicious!).
