Australian NZ VEGAN Mofo Part 3

Although not it's not quite known for being a vegan food, (it's one of those ninja vegan items) yesterday i made an Aussie favourite - chocolate crackles! There is no photographic evidence because they were all eaten before i could get my camera out. Here is how i made them.....

4 cups of some kind of rice bubble cereal
1 cup sifted icing sugar
3 tbs cocoa powder
1 cup dessicated coconut
250g copha

Mix the dry ingredients together. Melt the copha in the microwave for about 45 seconds (make sure to cut it up into a few pieces so that it melts faster) and pour it over the dry ingredients. Mix well and spoon into cupcake/muffin liners. Place in the fridge to set.
I usually put the cupcakes liners into the cupcake baking tray to keep the shape and make them really big.
Here's what kellogs say they look like but mine are always double the size!

Yum! We love making chocolate crackles, so fun! And someone made them for the last bake sale, they were a good seller!

Oh man, I SO remember chocolate crackles from all the kids parties I went to when I was little. You're making me nostalgic for them now! Perhaps I should whip up a batch...

that's so funny, my partner came home from his job at a school where they made chocolate crackles in class and whipped up a huge batch for us, using that exact same recipe!
