Today we present you with a marvel in Japanese chocolate confections: baked cheesecake Kit Kat. These are specially made Kit Kat bars ready for baking only found in Japan; baking a regular Kit Kat bar won’t work. We had to try these out ourselves and got our hands on some. As a Japan Yum subscriber, chances are you’ll be seeing these soon. 😉
To enjoy these sweet treats, all you need are some Japanese cheesecake Kit Kat bars and a toaster over (a regular oven should work, but we personally haven’t tried it). Here’s the process we used to bake these to perfection!
How to Bake Japanese Kit Kats
- Unwrap bake-ready Kit Kat and place it on a foil wrapped tray.
- Place the tray in the toaster oven and set it to 375 degrees (don’t preheat it).
- Bake the Kit Kats for 3 minutes, or until the tops start turning golden brown.
- Remove them from the heat and let them cool off.

Unwrap the Kit Kat and lay it out on a foil wrapped tray. Discard the wrapper.
After about 1 minute the Kit Kat will start to melt at the base. It might seem like the Kit Kat is just going to melt away, but it won’t; keep waiting. After about 2 minutes you’ll start to notice the top bubble up and start browning. Wait about 30 seconds to a minute longer and remove it from the heat.
This is what the fully baked Kit Kat should look like. Let it cool off for about 5-10 minutes and enjoy your deliciously baked Kit Kat!
