This homemade Kit Kat recipe is a healthier version of the favorite candy bar because it contains natural ingredients that everyone knows. This secret ingredient Kit Kat bites recipe includes all the components of a regular Kit Kat, including the base and caramel, but the process of creating these components will surprise you. The base involves blending coconut, cashew flour and maple syrup in a food processor and pressing into muffin molds. The caramel mixture is a simple blend of natural ingredients too, like cashew butter and honey. If you adore Kit Kat chocolate bars, but would like a healthy snack to enjoy, this Kit Kat bar recipe is the one for you.

The most surprising part of this bar recipe is the caramel sauce. It is rich, sweet and velvety like normal caramel sauce, but so much simpler to make. If you are wondering how to make homemade caramel, it usually involves cooking sugar with water until it turns golden in color. This is a difficult process, because the caramel may appear the perfect color, but will, in fact, taste bitter. Usually, you have to pull the caramel off just a hair before to prevent a burnt caramel taste. This easy caramel recipe doesn’t have you dealing with any of the traditional challenges of caramel making because it involves blending ingredients like maple syrup, cashew butter, and honey in a food processor until smooth. It looks just like the usual caramel recipes, but without the fuss.While this easy Kit Kat recipe isn’t very hard to make, there is a piece of equipment that will make the process easy every time. A silicone muffin mold is a perfect vessel for the Kit Kat bars because they don’t have to be greased, and baked items are easy to remove from them. They aren’t the most ideal for baking, however, because they retain heat in a different way to other bakeware, but for no-bake recipes, like these bars, the silicone molds are perfect. Don’t worry, however, if you don’t have silicone bakeware at your disposal. You can substitute with a traditional muffin tin instead, make it non-stick by greasing it lightly with some coconut oil, and line the bottom of the tins with rounds of parchment paper.
