What would you do with 48 four-finger Kit Kats?!

Do you remember the other day when I won a Kit Kat sculpture competition? Well, the prize turned up the next day…

My prize: a box of 48 4-finger Kit Kats!

Yes, 48. Count them.

I sat and looked at them for a while, happy, excited, but fearful that this was the end of any chance I ever had at dieting. Naturally, while I was thinking I had a Kit Kat…

As I don’t have my own place of work right now, I decided to give a whole bunch of them to my mum to take into her office. That helped me get rid of a lot of them. Don’t get me wrong, you know I love Kit Kats and would happily make them the seventh food group, but I have no will power when it comes to Kit Kats. If they’re in the house, I eat them.

So, I got on the Internet and Googled “Kit Kat recipes”. It wasn’t long before I found a recipe for Kit Kat crunch cheesecake, which looked divine. I was going to a friend’s house for dinner on Saturday night, so I decided it was time to bake and share!

The recipe was really simple. I won’t repeat the whole recipe here as it’s not my own, but please click here if you want to know exact quantities etc.

Basically, I took six four-finger Kit Kats and smashed them up, which was fun.

First smash the Kit Kats

After crushing them and mixing them with melted butter, I squished them into a cake tin to make the cheesecake’s base:

Then I mixed mascarpone cheese with whipped double cream (light version!), lime juice and zest, and sugar:

And made the topping:

Almost finished - time to chill!

I added some lime slices for decoration, which was a bad idea.

They looked pretty but tasted bad the next day, so don’t do that! we had to pick them off before we ate the cheesecake.

Despite the near failure-by-lime, the cheesecake was a success!

Yay me! 😀

I still have more Kit Kats to dispose of. If you have any recipes or creative ideas, please let me know!
