These copycat Kit Kat bites are a homemade version of my favorite candy bar. Milk chocolate and crispy rice cereal come together in a bite-sized treat you can enjoy anytime!


  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • 1 ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 25 regular sized marshmallows
  • 12 ounce milk chocolate morsels
  • 1 ounce unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 4 ½ cups rice krispies cereal
  • 11 ounce butterscotch morsels
  • 1 cup peanut butter morsels


    1. In a large mixing bowl, add marshmallows, milk chocolate morsels and baking chocolate. Set aside.
    2. In a large pot, bring to a boil the sugar, cream and butter (over medium high heat). Once boiling, continue to boil for 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Pour hot mixture over marshmallows and chocolate. Using an electric mixer, beat until chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth (about 2 minutes).
    3. Melt butterscotch and peanut butter morsels together in microwave bowl for one minute. Stir and heat at 30 second intervals until fully melted.
    4. In a large bowl, combine rice cereal, melted butterscotch and about ⅓ of the chocolate mixture. Mix completely.
    5. In a parchment paper lined 13x9 baking dish, pour ⅓ of chocolate mixture onto bottom, spreading with a knife until bottom of dish is covered. Top with cereal mixture. Press firmly. Pour remaining ⅓ of chocolate mixture over cereal, spreading with a knife.
    6. Allow to set up in refrigerator, about 1-2 hours. Remove and cut into bite sized pieces. ENJOY!


  • Store the Kit Kat bites in a tupperware container in the fridge. They stay wonderfully crispy even a few days later!
  • Use a a very sharp knife to cut these bars! You want smooth and even edges. Your go-to knife for cutting Rice Krispy Treats will work well here, too.
  • Keep an eye on the butter and sugar while it's boiling! Spilled over boiled sugar makes for a sticky mess.
