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 just made your vegan chocolate cupcakes over the weekend for some vegan friends and they were a huge hit. I had bookmarked this cupcake recipe for mother’s day because I LOVE peanut butter cups.

    Anyway I wanted to let you know the woman from Confetti Cakes was on Rachel Ray and they posted the official recipe on the Rachel Ray website. Not sure if you want to link it?
