Rice Puffed Chocolate Crackles Recipe

These Rice Puffed Chocolate Crackles are super-simple, easy to make and delicious!!

Chocolate crackles are a popular Australian and New Zealand children’s treat commonly found at birthday parties and fetes.

They are made with a block of Copha (vegetable shortening), icing sugar, coconut, cocoa powder and Rice Krispies, super delicious but at the same time sickly sweet.

So, today I decided to make my own version just as good as the original but with a good quality dark chocolate (and absolutely no Copha!) – These are so delicious you are going to find it hard to stop at just one.

All you need to make this Rice Puffed Chocolate Crackles is, a good quality dark chocolate, coconut oil, desiccated coconut, icing sugar and of course some puffed rice!
