Recently a co-worker brought a few boxes of Kinder Bueno chocolate bars to the office. I think she bought them for a fundraiser and wanted to share them with us. These chocolate-covered wafer cookies are filled with a hazelnut cream. They are light and rich and delightful to eat on their own. But, of course, I started thinking of what I might create with a few of these bars and this recipe was born.
Chocolate and hazelnuts
Until my co-worker brought in those boxes, I had only heard of the candy on television commercials. I like candies that contain wafers, like Kit Kat, and adding in the combination of hazelnut and chocolate made these candy bars an instant hit.
To build on those flavors, I knew Nutella had to be a part of this new creation. From there it was a matter of choosing the right biscuit and dried fruit and a new tiffin was born.
Toppings and decorations
If you’ve made any of my other tiffin recipes then you know they are similar. The same goes for this recipe. The difference, if any, is there aren’t as many colorful decorations as the other recipes. I chose to keep things simple using chopped up Kinder Bueno bars, graham cracker crumbs, and white chocolate chips. But don’t be limited. If you are making these for a particular celebration, feel free to add colorful sprinkles or other edible decorations.
Because of the richness of these bars, I strongly recommend the finishing sprinkle of sea salt.
This rich and decadent tiffin is based on the Kinder Bueno chocolate bar. It is packed with crushed graham crackers, golden raisins, and pieces of its namesake chocolate bars. It is topped with a layer of Nutella and delicious toppings.
7 ounces dark chocolate
7 ounces milk chocolate
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 1.5-ounce packets Kinder Bueno (4 single bars)
6 ounces graham crackers (about 11 double crackers)
3/4 cup golden raisins
For the topping
1/2 cup Nutella
1 1.5-ounce package Kinder Bueno (2 single bars), broken into pieces
Graham cracker crumbs
White chocolate chips
Line a 9″ x 9″ baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
Chop 4 single Kinder Bueno bars into large chunks. Optional: place in the freezer while you melt the chocolate.
Place a medium-sized, heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water and melt the chocolates, being careful not to let the bowl touch the water. Once melted, remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter. Let cool for 5 minutes. You want the mixture to be easy to mix but not so warm that the Kinder Bueno pieces melt.
While the chocolate cools, roughly crush the graham crackers. Pieces should be small enough so you can mix them in with the other ingredients but not fine crumbs. You want to see chunks of crackers in the final product.
Stir the graham cracker pieces, golden raisins, and Kinder Bueno pieces into the cooled chocolate. Work quickly so the Kinder Bueno pieces don’t melt too much.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and level off. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Once the tiffin is set, remove the tiffin from the baking tray and spread with the Nutella. Sprinkle with a little sea salt then decorate with the Kinder Bueno pieces, graham cracker crumbs, and white chocolate chips.
Cut into squares and serve.
