I was recently asked to create some Kit Kat inspired fudge. I’m always up for a good challenge! I have bought wafers online before, but since they aren’t readily available, I wanted to create these with ingredients you can find anywhere! Rice Krispies were meant for this challenge. They are light and airy and create the perfect crunch!

Comments & Reviews

  1. OH!! Well, I wish I’d run across this recipe sooner but better late than never. The money I’ve spent on Kit Kats for the house full and I over time is, I’m sure, a terrible amount. No more store bought Kit Kats for us! THANKS! :o}

  2. Recipe looks great and I enjoy your blog but I have a suggestion. I think it would look nicer with fewer picture. I love recipes with beautiful photos but so many bloggers are loading lots of photos that are basically alike. One lovely photo is wonderful; more if they are significantly different. Too many pics make reading on a mobile device a little difficult. I hope you take this as constructive criticism and keep up the good work.

    1. Hi Kelley,
      Thank you so much for your suggestion! With blogging and pinterest being such a visual place, I like to show my readers several views. I usually try to keep it within 2-3 photos, but yeah, this one was a little excessive!

  3. Where is the recipe…..it states to click for the recipe and when I do there is not recipe only pictures and a short comment about how great they are

  4. Is there a substitute for heavy cream?  I would like to lower the calories a bit and never have heavy cream on hand.
