Custard Pudding Flavored Kit Kats

Resized-P1080477

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!

  1. I don’t think you could bake the Kit Kats we get here as any heat seems to melt the chocolate although I have never tried. What a neat and fun idea. It seems to me from seeing your posts on food that In Japan eating is meant to be fun and very enjoyable. Food presentation seems to be very important.

    1. Nancy, I think they do enjoy food in a different way here. Their portions tend to be smaller but whenever you travel here, eating food the region is known for or special regional dishes is always a popular thing to do. And companies are always coming up with new and interesting products so that’s a lot of fun. Plus, the presentation seems to be another way to enjoy food here. I have definitely enjoyed it all! ^_^

  2. I’m pressed for time now, but I jumped over from Tokyo 5’s blog when I saw that you were from Hawaii. I just returned from a visit to Hokkaido and found both your posts interesting about the culture shock.

    1. Thanks for stopping by! It has been a very interesting experience moving back from Japan, especially right before the hurricanes.

      I hope you enjoyed your visit to Hokkaido. I went to the Sapporo Snow Festival this past February and had a great time. If you’re interested, I did a few posts about that trip, too.
