Desserts Inspired By Candy Bars

Sharing is caring!

Happy National Milk Chocolate Dessert Day! I come from a long line of choco-holics so milk chocolate has a special place in my heart. I have the cutest and sweetest grandparents who, since I can remember, have kept a whole dresser drawer full of any chocolate candy that you could ever imagine. My sisters and I had full access to that special drawer as children, their home was chocolate heaven for us, and it still is. We are blessed that now our children get to experience that same excitement we once did as children as they raid the chocolate stash at Maa and Papa’s house.

To celebrate National Milk Chocolate Day and loving grandparents, I have rounded up five milk chocolate desserts inspired by our all time favorite milk chocolate candy bars.

1. Kit Kat Skillet Cookies via Miss In The Kitchen

Kit Kat Skillet Cookies are a quick and easy cookie baked with everyone’s favorite crispy candy bars and an extra drizzle of caramel and chocolate.  Too good to pass up!


2. Rolo Cake via Cookies and Cups

My son got some Rolo candies in a goodie bag once and I was tempted to eat them all before he even knew they were in there. Is that wrong???

Jess from Sweetest Menu takes Twix one step further by creating these adorable Twix Cookie Cups with shortbread, caramel, and milk chocolate.
