Making Homemade Nestle Crunch Bars

While browsing our local cake and candy making specialty store the other day, I found myself eyeing the bags of crisp rice again. They are in the chocolate and candy making section of the store. The crisp rice is exactly what you find inside a bar of Nestle Crunch. The bag was only $2.99 so I decided to get it.
You will need some milk chocolate or milk chocolate candy melts, a 1 ounce bar of white chocolate, and crisp rice.
I have many different candy moulds, but I broke out the ones that are shaped like candy bars for the recipe. It is very melt the chocolate, stir and add in your desirable amount of crisp rice. Pour the mixture into your candy mould and refrigerate to set, unless you tempered you chocolate you won't need to do that.
Once they are set, melt your white chocolate and get your pastry bag and small round tip ready. Once meltd, transfer to your piping bag and decorate however you wish and enjoy!
As a side note, I have been working with Lorann Oils this past year. Here is their website:
I used the orange oil for one of the bars. I added one drop as it is more concentrated that extract. Do you know exactly what it tastes like? One of those chocolate orange balls that you have to whack on the table to break it open into the wedges that are available around Christmas! Wow, I am so impressed by these oils.

Awesome, thanks! That would be great for me to make for my son, his allergic to peanuts and can't have basically any candy bars becuz they're all processed with peanuts. Question: Is crisp rice the same as like rice crispy cereal? Or how different is it? Thanks again, great blog!

You need to open up your own little sweet creations shop!

Those look so tasty. The orange oil is a great idea! I love the combination of orange and chocolate.

I am every bit a chocolate freak. I had been on a modified diet but that was recently temporaliy suspended. Now, this recipe may well be part of that suspension- gladly.

They look great, Kelly! We used to sell those tiny crisp rice in our store and they were very popular. We also used to sell all the LorAnn oils/flavoring...they make almost every flavor imaginable...

Robbi, the crisp rice is different from cereal. The rice is more crisp and the pieces are smaller and more round. It is the same cripy crunch in Nestle Crunch. These would work great for your child! You can control the ingredients and ensure there is no cross contamination.

Christina, I am loving the Lorann Oils. I have a variety of flavors now. At first I was unsure of what to use them in, but I keep finding more and more uses for them. I never make lemon bread without my Lorann Lemon Oil. Since you had a store with these products, have you used them before? Did you like them?

Yum! Crunch bars are my favorite candy never occured to me to try to make them at home! Thanks for sharing :)

Oh yeah, I've used them (still do) and LOVE them!I used to make a lot of hard-tack candy, so I used them in that, but now I use them in anything I want a boost of flavor in. You are right, they are very strong, so a few drops go a long way. They are great to make different flavors of icings too!

Those bars look so good! I wish I made candy or had a candy store any where near close to try that. Afraid I'd have a go at making dk chocolate bars. Alas, I'll have to content myself with staring at your pics and wishing I had a creative friend like you close by!

Christina, I agree. I don't think I could be without the Lorann Oils. I add them to the Vanilla Glaze recipe on this site and then pipe the flavored icing onto sugar cookies. I try to introduce the oils to anyone I know that would be interested because they are great, yet many people do not know about them or where to find them.

They look delicious (as all your photos always do) ~ never seen that shape mold before, where did you purchase them? I really could take a bite of them now, they would go perfect with my cup of tea!!!
