Eat it as chocolate bar or bake it into a crisp cookie.
KitKat Japan has developed a new chocolate bar that can be eaten as is, or baked.
That’s right. Baked. Instead of melting into a messy puddle of chocolate sauce and wafer bits, after two minutes in the oven the candy bar will bake into a crispy cookie.
Though details are sparse, images show what appear to be white chocolate, puffed into a golden browned version of itself.
The new bakeable candy bar comes in KitKat mini original chocolate and and KitKat mini pudding.
It’s the latest innovation out of KitKat Japan, which has also come out with unusual flavours like Hojicha Roasted Tea, Matcha Green Tea, Strawberry Cheesecake, Edamame Soybean and, of course, Wasabi.
Earlier this year, Nestlé Japan also opened the world’s first KitKat museum and boutique in Tokyo, in response to the brand’s cult-like following in the country.
The bakeable KitKat bar will be released across Japan on March 24.
Just in case you get other ideas in your head, Nestlé Japan also issued a disclaimer with their announcement: “KitKat Bake has been developed in Japan, specifically for baking; please do not attempt to bake other KitKat products.” – AFP Relaxnews
