KIT KAT® Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich: A Decadent, Eat-With-Your-Hands DessertAugust 19, 2019
Cookies are an iconic sweet that isn’t just for dessert. They are an ideal snack, with so many versions that it’s hard to truly pick a favorite. There’s the essential chocolate chip, the standard oatmeal, and more adventurous flavours, from everything to red velvet or coconut and macadamia. As the perfect base, cookie dough can easily be transformed into anything amazing—hence our KIT KAT® Cookie.
The KIT KAT® Cookie is definitely playful. It’s chock full of different KIT KAT® bars: KIT KAT® Chunky Milk Chocolate, KIT KAT® Chunky White, and KIT KAT® Chunky Peanut Butter. Baking all of these awesome bars into one cookie creates a chunky, chewy treat, with the crispy wafer adding even more texture. Each KIT KAT® flavor brings something to the table: the original brings the essential milk chocolate flavor that chocolate chips would, white adds the sweetness and smoothness, and peanut butter finishes it with a necessary salty and nutty note.
As if this weren’t enough, we’ve made the KIT KAT® Cookies into the most outrageous of cookie sandwiches, by placing a huge scoop of ice cream in between two perfectly-baked pieces. You can use any flavor—from vanilla to chocolate—and create your own mix. Roll the sides into crushed up KIT KAT® pieces, and you’ve got an incredibly indulgent treat.
