This is really an adaptation of the Nestle Crunch candy bar.
My little girl loves Nestle Crunch and was quite sad after eating her last mini bar. I
decided to make her some homemade ones. After all, how difficult could it be? It's
basically chocolate with rice krispies! But I thought of using bittersweet chocolate rather than milk chocolate because she likes bittersweet chocolate too.
So off I went
to buy the rice krispies and a chocolate mold to form the bars. I came
home and discovered that somehow the chocolate mold went missing! It
wasn't even registered in the receipt. And I didn't want to go back to
the store! So I thought I'd just use whatever I had, which was a mini cupcake mold (think mini Reese cups).
I melted 250 grams of bittersweet chocolate
(over a double boiler) and added 2/3 cup of rice krispies. While I originally
planned to use the chocolate cup molds, in the end I decided to just spread it out on a
parchment-lined cookie sheet because the mixture was pretty thick and wasn't spreading at all. I stuck it in the freezer for a several
minutes and after it hardened, I sliced the big chocolate bar into bite-sized pieces!
little girl tried a piece and said they were more delicious! (She does
like bitter chocolate!) She had a complaint though. She said that my
version melted faster than the Nestle Crunch!
Hubby says he prefers these bittersweet crunch chocolate pieces!
