I really dislike the taste of copha, but do like the idea of a chocolate crackle! This Christmas Chocolate Crackles recipe has no copha in it. It uses actual chocolate instead which in my opinion give such a better taste.
Christmas Chocolate Crackles
- 300 grams chocolate (we used Cadbury Dairy Milk)
- 1 1/2 cups rice bubble
- 3/4 cup desiccated coconut
- 200 grams M&Ms
- Place 40 mini patty pans on a tray, ready to add chocolate crackle mixture to. You could use larger sized patty pans if you wish, but these work out to be little bite size treats, perfect for little hands and mouths.
- Collect 20 red and 20 green M&Ms (or which ever colour you prefer) and set aside.
- Break the chocolate into small pieces and place in a medium-sized microwave safe bowl (you add the other ingredients to it, so it needs to be large enough to fit all ingredients and to able to stir it easily.)
- Melt chocolate on high for about 90 seconds. Check and stir. If chocolate needs more melting, do so for 15 second bursts.
- Add coconut and rice bubbles to the melted chocolate and combine well.
- Spoon chocolate mixture into the patty pans.
- Add a M&M to the top of each crackle.
- Place chocolate crackles in the fridge to set for about an hour.
- I took the patty pans out of the chocolate crackles when I placed them on the platter to serve as a sweet treat Christmas Day.
- If you have some left over store in an airtight container in the fridge.
