Chocolate Crackles

Classic chocolate crackles are a true Aussie icon that has passed down through the ages. They’re super easy to make and hopefully, there may be a couple left over for adults to enjoy as well.

The traditional chocolate crackles recipe is simply made with rice bubbles, cocoa, icing sugar, coconut and copha… Kiddies Love What 101!  Now I know that this is quite a simple recipe, but let me tell you why I’m still sharing this recipe. Chocolate crackles were an absolute staple at any of my friends birthday parties when I was growing up. And when I take Maggie to her friends’ parties, they are still at the snack table to this day.

They are a great way to get the kids in the kitchen and learn how to make and bake with you. This is a great opportunity for them to share an awesome experience with mum or dad.  I can remember the experience as a kid making them with both my mother and grandmother. It is something that has stuck with me and I hope will stick with my kid.

 Another great reason is that it’s simple and quick to make with the kids that they won’t have time to lose interest due to either attention spans or the recipe having too many steps. It’s also a great way to get them interested and make cooking fun with little to know mess for you to clean up for us parents. 

Either way, they’re delicious, they’re super simple to make and kids love them. And don’t kid yourself, so do you!
