Klondike bars can be hard to come by in college. There aren’t too many ice cream vending machines around, and it’s not so often you find yourself splurging on dessert in a gas station.

Next time you have a craving for that good ol’ Choco Taco, put your chef’s hat on and make your own. It might even taste better.

    Add in the wet mixture and mix until combined (be sure not to over mix).

    SpoonTip: If the mixture seems too thick, add milk until it’s a more liquid-y and less pudding-y consistency. 

  • Step 6

    Heat pan, coat with butter, and add batter. Swerve the pan so the batter spreads into a nice, thin and even circle.
