It's that triangle-shaped block of chocolate that tastes delicious, but when it comes to breaking off a piece, is about as far from a Kit Kat's easy wafer-snap as you can get.

Until now. A YouTuber has shared her foolproof method for snapping off individual pieces of the bar in a video that's been viewed more than 660,000 times.

Kaitlin Moore, believed to be from the US, demonstrates opening a bar of Toblerone as she explains: "Let me show you how to properly break off a piece of it."

Eating a bar of the pyramid-shaped block, which is inspired by the Matterhorn Mountain in the Swiss Alps, usually involves some effort to snap away each piece.

But Moore's method looks far more simple: Instead of tugging the piece away from the bar, she pushes it towards it.

Her demonstration using just a finger appears to take little to no effort in comparison.

Several of the video's viewers commented on the demonstration, applauding Moore for changing their attitude towards the chocolate, which they said they were previously put off buying because it was difficult to break.

While one user wrote: "You are amazing. This is amazing. My life has changed for the better", another joked that they usually use a chainsaw to remove it.

Some weren't so impressed, stating "there's no right way or wrong way when it comes to eating or breaking food".

Another wrote: "Who cares? If it breaks off then you have succeeded. Don't... tell me I'm doing it wrong when any method that results in a broken-off piece is technically correct."
