Quick And Delicious
Chocolate crackles
August 14, 2013

We made these at school in my daughter, Chloes’ class when she was in  Year 2.  Whenever I need a healthy snack ready to go I can always rely on this recipe.    As long as there’s cacao butter or coconut oil, cacao for the chocolate and a sweetener on hand then we’re good to go!    Another very quick, super easy and nourishing recipe the kids love!

Just don’t tell them it’s good for them…

Preparation time:  5 minutes

Fridge time:  about 30 minutes to set

Quantity:  approximately 15

Chocolate crackles
Ingredients:

  • 2 cups base: eg puffed rice or almonds (or a mix)
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut (optional)
  • 100ml melted coconut oil
  • 1 big tbsp honey

Directions:

  • if using almonds, roughly chop them or place in a food processor to roughly chop. keep an eye on it so it’s not overprocessed.
  • place the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and mix together well.  (if the mix is sloppy, with liquid at the bottom of the bowl,  add more of the base)
  • once mixed, place in the freezer for about 5 minutes or until the oil sets a bit.
  • then stir again to ensure the nuts or puffed rice is covered well
  • place into patty pans
  • store in the fridge

Notes:

  • The puffed rice is great for school or nut allergies.  If taking to school remember to include an ice pack to keep it cool as the coconut oil will melt.
  • if the coconut oil is hard, place in bowl of warm water for 5 minutes to melt.
  • Boost the nutritional value and add in:  goji berries, pepitas, sunflower seeds, cacao nibs, or a couple of drops of peppermint oil or whatever you’ve got on hand.  All these will work a treat and give an extra yumminess and nutritional nudge!
