3 Musketeers Candy Bars

So I made the mistake of showing my husband these recipes for candy bars on Pinterest one day. They have one for Butterfingers, one for Twix, one for Reese's cups, Snickers, York Peppermint Patties, and 3 Musketeers. At least those are the ones I've pinned so far. After seeing this, he immediately asked if we could make the 3 Musketeers (probably because the ingredients list consisted of a total of 3 items). I told him that I had bought bite sized Twix & Milky Way bars for work, so he was satisfied with that at the time. And then one night I noticed him trying to whip up something in the kitchen after dinner. It was the 3 Musketeers bars.

This recipe comes from Monster Mama's blog.

Unfortunately, my husband's version didn't look as neat as this, and I forgot to take a picture. We've yet to discover the neat way of dipping things in chocolate. We will have to work on that!

3 Musketeers
  • 2 c semi sweet choc chips 
  • 1 (8oz) tub of Cool Whip 
  • 2 c choc  candy coating wafer melts (most stores sell them in baking department)
*We used chocolate almond bark vs. the wafer melts. Also, I felt that the inside of the candies were too chocolate-y (what!? I know..), so next time we'll use less chocolate chips.

 1) Line an 8x8" square pan with wax paper. 
2) In a medium bowl, melt chocolate chips in microwave on 50% power for ~30 seconds. Stir  microwave  for 30 more seconds on 50% power. 
3) Beat melted chocolate for 30 seconds on high with an electric mixer. Add the Cool Whip to melted chocolate & beat just until combined and fluffy (~30-60 seconds).
4) Spread evenly into 8x8" pan & place in freezer for about 30 minutes. 
5) Remove from freezer, remove candy from pan & cut into squares. Return back to freezer.
6) Melt candy wafers/almond bark in microwave following package directions. 
7) Take the frozen squares of cool whip/chocolate & dip into melted chocolate, then place on baking tray lined with wax paper. 
8) Place in refrigerator/freezer until chocolate sets/hardens. 
*Store in airtight container in refrigerator or freezer.

You can't beat 3 ingredients! This can be dangerous, however, to have home made candy bars that whip up so quickly! Maybe we'll try out the other candy bars sometime and share with you!
