Homemade Three Musketeers Bars

threemusketeers1

Two years ago I knitted my whole family scarves for Christmas.  Wait…that’s not right.  Oh yeah, I started five scarves and finished two, three are still half-made and somewhere in the back of my closet.  Last year I think I forget to buy presents altogether.  As you can probably tell, I’m not exactly the greatest at gifting during the holidays, but this was my year for redemption..

One of the gifts I made were these homemade three musketeer bars for my other half-brother Phil.  They were extremely simple to make, and they turned out amazing.  I ate myself silly on these little bite of chocolate heaven, but shhh, don’t tell Phil that the recipe made a lot more than the amount he received!

I always say to try out the recipes I post, but I’m really seriously about this one! With only three ingredients, you cannot go wrong and even if  you do-there’s no way the end result won’t be absolutely delicious!

Homemade Three Musketeer Bars Recipe

  • 4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (2 regular sized bags)
  • 1 (8-10 ounce) container of frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 tsps shortening or butter

Making the filling:

  1. In a double boiler, melt 2 cups (1 bag) of chocolate chips.  Pour the chocolate in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk the chocolate until no longer hot (lukewarm or cooler), and then fold in the thawed whipped topping.
  3. Place wax paper on the bottom and sides of an 8×8 inch pan, and then spread the filling in the pan.
  4. Freeze the filling for an hour, and then cut into whichever shapes are desired (I made small rectangles).

Coating the filling:

  1. In the same double boiler as before, melt the remaining bag of chocolate chips along with the 2 tsps of shortening or butter.
  2. Once the chocolate is completely homogenous, one by one, dip the frozen filling shapes in the chocolate, and then place on parchment paper to dry.
  3. Store the homemade three musketeers bars in a freezer, or fridge.
  4. ENJOY!
