Kit Kat Chunky Champion

If you’ve been watching TV recently then no doubt you’ll have seen the adverts for the current Kit Kat Chunky Champion Contest.

In a nutshell, Nestle have released four brand new flavours and they want you to tell them which flavour should survive and become a permanent addition to the Kit Kat range.

If the promise of eating four chocolate bars isn’t enough, Kit Kat are also giving everyone who casts a vote the chance to win £100 in their daily competitions.

Never one to turn down a chocolate related challenge, my family and I endeavoured to test out all four flavours and give you our (not particularly expert) opinions. 🙂

The new flavours are:

White Chocolate

Peanut Butter

Double Chocolate

Chocolate Orange

In a very scientific test we came to the conclusion that:

White Chocolate – this bar has everything that’s good about a standard Kit Kat Chunky in a white chocolate shell. It’s not profound, but it’s still very good.

Peanut Butter – one word for this bar….. wonderful! We have a shameful lack of peanut butter and chocolate sweets in this country, which are finally remeded by this yummy and moreish new Kit Kat.

Double Chocolate – it promises so much but fails to deliver. It simply tastes like a normal Kit Kat chunky with a bit more chocolate, it offers nothing particularly new.

Chocolate Orange – the flavour I was prepared to dislike, it was actually a surprisingly delicious variant. I found it hard to fault and any fan of Chocolate Orange flavours will be satisfied here.

So if you hadn’t already guessed, our votes go for the Kit Kat Peanut Butter Chunky!!

If we had to pick a runner up it would be Chocolate Orange, followed by White Chocolate. Double Chocolate comes in a sad fourth place 🙁

I really do enjoy promotions such as this one, the idea to give input on new flavours is always very appealing. Plus it’s a good way to spend a Saturday morning munching on yummy snacks 🙂

Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

It feels like I haven’t posted a recipe for quite sometime, so true to form today I am bringing you a childhood favourite Peanut Butter Cookies! These are so quick and simple and very moreish.

What You’ll Need

5 oz S.R. flour

4 oz caster sugar

4 oz soft margarine

1 tablespoon liquid coffee

1 desert spoon crunchy peanut butter

Oven 350F, 180C (or adjust for a fan oven), Gas 4.

Step 1

Cream the margarine and sugar thoroughly.

Step 2

Mix in the liquid coffee and peanut butter.

Step 3

Add the flour and roll handfuls of the mixture into walnut sized balls and place on a greased backing tray. I prefer to use baking parchment so that you do not need to put grease on the tray but either works. I flatten the balls with my fingertips.

Step 4

Bake in a moderate oven for about 20 mins.


Note. My picture of ingredients show Morrisons but I am not being paid by them it is my nearest supermarket.
