I used the same concept that cake balls are made with for these truffles. Therefore, I chose a Kitkat candy bar because it has the wafer inside, unlike candy bars that are all good. By that, I mean all soft ingredients like chocolate, nougat, and caramel. I thought the wafer would give it substance.

I haven’t tried other candy bars to see if they work. I’ll update this post when/if I do.

You can get KitKat candy bar minis now that are already unwrapped which is a huge time saver in this recipe.

For the chocolate coating, I like to use dark chocolate. It’s a nice contrast since the candy bars are so sweet. However, you can use dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or white chocolate. I do recommend using Wilton Candy Melts for a smooth, even coating.

You can add a decoration on top if you choose or leave them plain.

Melting chocolate can be tricky, frustrating, and irritating! I wrote this post How to Melt Chocolate that may help you.

HOW TO MAKE Kitkat Truffle Recipe

This recipe is about as simple as it gets.

  1. First, you want to crush the Kitkat candy bars. I put them in a freezer-style ziptop bag. Then I took my frustrations out and beat them with a meat mallet until they were crumbs.
  2. Next, I poured the Kitkat crumbs into a bowl and added sweetened condensed milk.
  3. Stir until it’s gooey and sticks together.
  4. Chill
  5. Form into balls. I found it easier to use a spring-release scoop (small ice cream scoop). The scoop I used was about 1/2 tablespoon.
  6. Finally, dip the balls in melted chocolate and allow to set.

These truffles are okay to set on the counter for a couple of days. However, if you need to keep them for longer than that, I recommend storing them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
