When I was a kid chocolate crackles were my favourite at a party. I still have a sweet tooth and I still get cravings for them every so often, and I’m 40 now!

I have of course, lightened up the recipe to remove unnecessary added sugars and used all whole food ingredients to help rather than hinder your health.


  • 2 cups of puffed rice (you could also use or quinoa, or millet. If you opt to use a rice bubble type cereal just be aware they contain added sugar).⁠

  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil⁠

  • 2 tbsp raw cacao powder

  • 2 tbsp dark roasted peanut butter⁠ (smooth or crunchy, or a different kind of nut butter)

  • 1 tbsp honey⁠ (or maple syrup)

  • pinch of salt⁠

  • 1/2 a block of 70% or higher dark chocolate


1. Place rice puffs into a mixing bowl.

2. In a small saucepan, add coconut oil, cacao, peanut butter, honey, and salt. using a small whisk or spoon mix to combine.⁠ You could also zap in a microwave.

3. Pour the mixture over the rice puffs and combine.

4. Place the mixture into a lined loaf pan and pat it down with your fingers or the back of a spoon.

5. Set in the fridge for two hours.

6. Melt chocolate in a bowl over a boiling saucepan or in the microwave

7. Spread over the top and set for another hour.

Note: These don't keep out of the fridge for very long *at all* due to the lack of copha so only take them out when you're ready to eat them, and put them back in as soon as you can.
