Homemade Three Musketeer Candy Bars

Halloween is almost here so I’ve been in the mood for candy! Hubby claims he’s not a big fan of chocolate, but he’s never turned down anything I give him to taste. With that being said, if there was candy in the house, I’d eat about 99% of it. I can’t really control myself around candy. That’s why we never buy any.

Since we won’t get trick or treaters for Halloween because of living in a condo building, I can’t justify breaking our “No Candy in the House” rule, so I decided instead to make some candy. Because if I make it, the rule isn’t broken.

These little candy bars are pretty awesome. They taste just like a Three Musteteer’s bar. I kept them in the freezer because I like my candy frozen.

Homemade Three Musketeer Candy Bars

Ingredients:

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (8 oz.) tub frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 cups milk chocolate chips
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Directions:

Line an 8 or 9-inch square pan with wax paper.

In a medium bowl, melt semi-sweet chocolate chips in the microwave at fifty percent power, or use a double boiler.

Using an electric mixer on high speed, beat melted chocolate for about 30 seconds.

Add whipped topping to melted chocolate and beat until well combined and fluffy, 30-60 seconds more.

Spread chocolate mixture evenly into prepared pan (if mixture is too stiff, press into pan with lightly dampened hands). Place in freezer for 30 minutes.

Remove pan from freezer and turn chocolate mixture onto a cutting board; cut into one-inch squares. Return squares to freezer for another 15-20 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt milk chocolate chips with 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil and stir until well combined. Dip frozen chocolate squares into melted chocolate to coat. Place on wax paper to set. Keep chocolates in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

    I’ll take any leftovers! They sound amazing. I keep saying dessert recipes with bacon and bookmarking them, but I haven’t tried any yet. Adding this one to the list now too. 🙂

    The frosting sounds amazing. I honestly still can’t bring myself to get behind bacon in desserts. Maybe someday I’ll try a bacon cupcake if I’m given one though. 🙂 I can only resist so long.

    Fun and Fearless – It’s exactly like it sounds… Everyone dresses up as a pirate (or something related – Hubby and I went as Treasure maps last year). They even hire this guy who looks like Captain Jack Sparrow to come and there’s a prize for best costume. One of the best parties of the year!

    Sounds great! The problem I’ve seen with bacon is that sometimes it is chewy in cupcakes. That’s not good. I like that this recipe says to cook until crispy. Extra crispy for me!

    I’m so curious to try bacon in baked goods, but do you think turkey bacon would work?

    Corrine – I’m sure turkey bacon would work if you could get it nice and crispy. I’ve heard that if the bacon isn’t super crispy, it has a really weird chewy texture in baked goods.

    Chocolate..caramel…bacon…PERFECTION.
    I am infatuated with the perfect smoky/salty addition of bacon into sweet baked goods. So delicious. Of course, I’m kind of a fan of adding bacon into just about anything.
    Great pics, def wanna try these out!

    Sorry the cupcakes didn’t turn out like you wanted. Have you ever tried the bacon/chocolate cupcake at Cherry Bomb Bakery in Brighton? They are fantastic!
