Description

Chocolate Crackles are a classic New Zealand and Australian Kid's Birthday Party Classic! It is super simple, requires no baking, and can easily be made gluten free or Vegan. This recipe for Chocolate Crackle has two versions - the more nostalgic tasting one made with coconut oil and cocoa, and a fancy chocolate crackle made with chocolate.


Ingredients

Scale

For the chocolate based version:

  • 70g rice krispies / rice bubbles
  • 50g desiccated coconut
  • 20g powdered sugar
  • 4 tsp cocoa powder (any kind is fine, I used dutch process)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 160g chopped chocolate (I used half milk and half dark)
  • 25g refined coconut oil

For the Cocoa / Coconut Oil based version: 

  • 70g rice krispies / rice bubbles
  • 70g powdered sugar
  • 50g desiccated coconut
  • 2 Tbsp Cocoa (any kind is fine, I used dutch process)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 125g refined coconut oil, melted

Instructions

FOR THE CHOCOLATE BASED VERSION

  1. Grease an 8" (20cm) square pan and line with a piece of parchment that extends over the ends slightly to help remove the slice once set.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the rice bubbles, coconut, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and salt.
  3. In a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water (make sure the bowl does not touch the water), or in a microwave, melt the chocolate. Add the coconut oil and mix until well combined. The heat of the chocolate should be enough to melt the coconut oil, but re-warm very briefly to help incorporate if needed.
  4. Pour the chocolate mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients, and mix well with a spatula until well combined.
  5. Transfer to the prepared pan and spread out and then use an offset spatula or spoon to spread smooth.
  6. Refrigerate until set, about 45 minutes to an hour, then cut or break into pieces. Store in the fridge in an airtight container.

FOR THE COCONUT OIL VERSION 

  1. Grease an 8" (20cm) square pan and line with a piece of parchment that extends over the ends slightly to help remove the slice once set.
  2. In a large bowl, combine rice bubbles, powdered sugar, desiccated coconut, cocoa, and salt. Add the coconut oil and mix well to combine.
  3. Transfer to the prepared pan and spread out and then use an offset spatula or spoon to spread smooth.
  4. Refrigerate until set, about 45 minutes to an hour, then cut or break into pieces. Store in the fridge in an airtight container.
