With all the running around we do, it's nice to take a break with something sweet from time to time, which is why we came up with this recipe for "Gimme a Break Bars." Once you try our version of this copycat candy recipe, you might never go back to the store-bought kind again. 

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 (14-ounce) package vanilla wafer cookies, cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 (10-ounce) package dark chocolate melting wafers
  • 1/2 (10-ounce) package white chocolate melting wafers

What to Do

  1. Line a 10- x 15-inch baking sheet with wax paper.
  2. In a medium, microwave-safe bowl, microwave dark chocolate for 60 seconds, stir. Continue to microwave in 10 second intervals until chocolate is melted and smooth. Place wafer in chocolate, coating evenly on all sides. Using a fork, remove wafer and shake off any excess chocolate and place on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining cookies. Refrigerate 5 minutes or until chocolate is set.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small microwave-safe bowl, microwave white chocolate for 30 seconds, stir. Continue to microwave in 10 second intervals until chocolate is melted and smooth. Place in a small resealable plastic bag and snip off one corner. Drizzle white chocolate over chocolate-covered wafers. Refrigerate 5 minutes, or until chocolate is set. Remove from wax paper and enjoy. Store in airtight container.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Put these in tins along with my holiday cookies. They were a hit! I agree with BaconBombshell - they just might be better than the real ones.

Honestly, these taste just as good (maybe even better) as real Kit Kat bars. I really enjoyed this recipe.

My fiance and I could not get enough of these. They're easy to make and boy do they go fast. I recommend making two batches because they're that good

Made 'em for our fishing trip, kids and adults gobbled 'em up / Nana was a hero !
