The Chocolate Crackles Story
Think “Chocolate Crackles”, think children’s parties! This recipe is an institution. I think every man and has dog has this recipe or has made these at some time or another. The ingredients are basic. It hardly even needs cooking! You mix it together, whack it in a patty pan. And Presto.
It has been years since I have made these, because once the kids grow up you never bother to make them again, sad but true. These are great of course for kid’s parties as I already mentioned as well as school markets, but I don’t need to tell you that , I bet you already know.
Chocolate Crackles Recipe
4 cups rice bubbles
1½ cups sifted icing sugar
1 cup desiccated coconut
3 tablespoons cocoa
Mix rice bubbles with the icing sugar, cocoa and coconut in a large mixing bowl using a wooden spoon or spatula. Melt the copha in a saucepan over a low heat, allow to cool slightly and stir into the rice bubbles mixture, mixing all ingredients together well. Using a teaspoon, scoop 2 teaspoons of the mixture into a small patty pan, place each chocolate crackle on a scone tray and refrigerate until firm.
Use the large patty pans and make huge chocolate crackles
