What would you do with 48 four-finger Kit Kats?!Posted: May 22, 2011
Do you remember the other day when I won a Kit Kat sculpture competition? Well, the prize turned up the next day…
48 four-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.
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:
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!
I still have more Kit Kats to dispose of. If you have any recipes or creative ideas, please let me know!
