Who doesn't love a good chocolate crackle? As a kid, I looked forward to these bad boys at every kids party. I still love going to kids parties for the food and hope that there will be these little cases of chocolate goodness.
Im so disappointed when there's not.
Recently, I went dairy free and vegetarian as well as already eating a gluten free diet. Sucks, I know, but its for health/medical reasons and it seems to be working so I'm sticking with it. Im actually having an awesome time looking up and trying new recipes! Im eating way more vegetables than I ever have before (what else... is there?) and I'm loving it! Of course there are my favourite foods that I am adapting and there is stuff that I just absolutely have to miss out on (BACON!). But I'm surviving and feeling great! I feel so much better already.
So I have been feeling like chocolate crackles lately and decided I would give them a go, vegan style.
SO MUCH EASIER AND BETTER THAN I EXPECTED!!!
Like, why haven't we always made them like this?? Who the hell made up the recipe with disgusting copha when they could have used coconut oil?? I will never make them the traditional way again!!
I have seen these made with melted chocolate... Its not dairy free. I have seen these made with Mars Bars... Also not dairy free.
Here is a vegan (and way healthier and better tasting) way! YAY!!!
I totally laugh when people hear that I have restricted my diet and say "OMIGOD you are going to lose so much weight!"
Jasmine very excited to have one after dinner!
|Dying to have another!!|
You will need 24 cupcake papers
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup icing sugar (pure for gluten free)
1/3 cup of cocoa (I used raw cacao powder for added health benefits and better taste)
4 cups of rice bubbles or coco pops (can use the gluten free version if required)
150g solid coconut oil
Mix all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan on the stove and let cool for a minute or two.
Add the melted coconut oil to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Refrain from eating the mix as is, or you will have none left.
Spoon into cupcake pans and place in the fridge to set!
