Snap Crackle Pop



Kids healthier version of a birthday staple, the famous Chocolate Crackle. They have passed and been approved by my critics, and even requested for following occasions so they must be okay. Using organic brown rice puffs that you can get from most health food stores, coconut oil and rice malt syrup as a sweetner and cacao, you have ingredients that are less processed and retain some nutrition. You still don't want to have too much of these, but for kids celebrations we still want to keep it fun without loading them with sugar and colourings and flavours and preservatives........

Quick and simple to make, try at your next birthday bash!

note: as coconut oil is the base and glue that holds them together they will fall apart with heat. Best to keep in fridge or freezer till last moment, or if taking to school for class celebration warn not to leave in the sun, on the heater etc and perhaps best for recess not at end of day.


4 cups of puffed rice
2 cups of desiccated coconut
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup cacao powder
1/2 cup of coconut oil
1 cup rice malt syrup

Melt oil and syrup over low heat.

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl then stir through oil and syrup.

Spoon into patty cake bases and put in fridge or freezer.

EASY hey!

chia seeds not necessary but nice add in, in fact mix it up a bit and add whatever you like
