  • Some nibble away at the chocolate shell first; others may split the wafers apart before eating. They may have their preferences, but what what they may not know is their routines help to reverse engineer what it takes to make one in the first place. Claire Saffitz is up to the challenge to make Gourmet Kit Kats!

        Anyone miss the old Kit Kat packaging where it was that aluminum foil wrapping covered by the paper sleeve?


        Just me?

                        Well for starters, American Kit Kat packaging wouldn't have to accommodate for a second language. XD I always double take when I see monolingual packaging. So much space for everything!

                            There's a show on ITV or Channel 4 or something that is copying your idea. It's called snackables. I doubt you could do anything, or that you'll se this comment but...

                                          this is soooo weird for me, my mom tempers chocolate in a table with a spatula she doesn't even use a thermometer or ice, I've never thought it was actually this hard

                                              I just had to say I really love the editing style on Bon Appetit. The subtle edits and some bg sounds, not "in your face" type of humour... they're trying to keep it as raw as possible and i love it.

                                                                                          Or did it sound like biting into hard thick chocolate?

                                                                                            I like how Claire is just unapologetically herself. Like if she’s annoyed or doesn’t want to do something that is difficult she doesn’t hide it. Really realistic unlike other ‘YouTube personalities’ that just put on a happy face all the time for the camera.
