Ingredients & Tools
The best part about this recipe is that it requires just 2 ingredients and no special kitchen equipment!
- Wafer Cookies – We used vanilla wafer cookies but you can use any flavour you want to!
- Dark Chocolate – For a more accurate flavour profile you can use a vegan milk chocolate, but we love using dark chocolate for this too.
- Double Boiler – If you don’t have a double boiler, you can also use a heatproof mixing bowl on top a pot of boiling water.
- Forks – Forks make coating the wafers in chocolate nice and easy.
- Parchment Paper (or Silicone Baking Mat) – Using parchment paper or a silicone baking mat means your Vegan KitKats won’t stick to the pan after freezing or cooling.
What are wafer cookies?
Wafer cookies are a sweet, crisp, thin, and dry cookie. They’re often used in many desserts as well in some popular chocolate bars around the world. They can be both vegan and not. When finding a wafer cookie for this recipe be sure to check the ingredient list to make sure it’s vegan.
Vegan KitKat FAQ:
Do you need to temper the chocolate?
Nope! While tempering the chocolate would ensure that the chocolate remains solid at room temperature, its not completely necessary. In place of tempering chocolate, these Vegan KitKat Bars set in the fridge or freezer. Then be sure to store them in the fridge or freezer. If left a room temperature, un-tempered chocolate will melt at room temperature.
How long do these last?
We promise you, you’ll eat these quicker than they will go bad. If kept in the freezer (like we do) they can be stored for up tot 2-3 months.
How to make Vegan KitKat Bars:
All you have to do is melt the chocolate, coat the wafers and let them set in the fridge or freezer until solid. Yep, that’s it.
Vegan KitKat Bars
- 10 vanilla wafer cookies
- 150 g dark chocolate chunks
- Cut each wafer cookie in half length-wise.
- Using a double boiler (or a heatproof mixing bowl on a pot of boiling water) melt the dark chocolate until smooth.
- Dip each wafer cookie in chocolate and gently toss to coat using forks. Life the wafer cookie and allow the excess chocolate to drip off. Place on a lined baking sheet and repeat to all the wafer cookies. You can leave each cookie separate, or place two next to each other to make the traditional looking KitKat bar with two pieces.
- Place baking sheet with coated wafers in the freezer to set for 15-20 minutes. Once set, store in an air-tight container in the freezer.
