I am always on the lookout for new delicious treats to try and since new Kit Kat flavors come out fairly often in Japan, I always look for their latest edition. The custard pudding flavor Kit Kats are perhaps the best ones I’ve tried yet!
These Kit Kats require a little more work than most because they’re best when baked in the oven for a couple minutes. I generally avoid the oven whenever possible but the promise of a delicious dessert was enough to get me baking. I just opened a few of the mini packs and placed them on the oven tray.
I thought they looked a lot like white chocolate before baking so I was a little worried they’d just be super sweet like white chocolate (not my favorite). Once they had baked for a couple minutes though, they transformed into a golden brown and smelled oh so good!
I loved the contrasting textures of the caramelized, crunchy exterior and the soft, flaky interior. It was definitely sweet but not overly so, especially when served with a glass of milk. And being able to make a hot dessert with so little actual work involved is always a plus! I think I’d better make another trip to the grocery store and stock up before they run out!
