Chocolate Crackle Slice
Chocolate crackles were the centrepiece of many Aussie birthday parties in the early 90s, and we reckon they should still have a place on the table.
Our take on this childhood classic is a little different. It's a no-bake slice that's definitely more nutritious than the chocolate crackles we grew up eating, but it's just as moreish and yummy. Enjoy!
To make chocolate crackle slice, you'll need:
For the base:
- 4 cups puffed brown rice
- 1/2 cup your favourite nut butter
- 1 cup raw cacao powder
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of sea salt
For the choc top:
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 raw cacao powder
- 1/4 cup your favourite nut butter
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Line a slice tin with baking paper and set aside.
- Pop the bar ingredients, except puffed rice, into a bowl and mix well.
- Add puffed rice and stir until well coated.
- Pour the mix into the slice tin and spread out evenly with a spatula.
- Place in freezer for 10–15 minutes, until set.
- For the choc top, put all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
- Pour the choc top over the base and put it back in the freezer until set.
- Remove from freezer and slice into bars.
