Chocolate Crackles

8 Jun

Wiki says that these are great for kids to make, as they don’t require baking. What Wiki doesn’t tell you though, is that these are amazing! Probably because of all the sugar. Sugar being something you probably don’t want to feed your children too much of (hyperactive kids stuck indoors on a rainy winter day? No thanks!) – I propose that you get your kids to make these, and then eat them yourself.

INGREDIENTS

250g Vegetable Shortening
1/2 C Icing Sugar
1/2 C Coconut
5 Tblsp Cocoa
4 C Rice bubbles

INSTRUCTIONS

Melt the vege shortening in a pot over medium heat. While it’s melting, sieve the cocoa and icing sugar into a bowl. Mix in the coconut and rice bubbles. Once the vege shortening has melted, pout into the mixture and stir it up.

Spoon the mixture into cupcake cases, and refrigerate for 5 – 10 minutes.

 

Edit: I have since been informed you should add 1 tsp Raspberry essence and a small pack of dried cranberries to make these even better!
