Divine, delightful, these sweet treats evoked memories of childhood birthday party but are totally good for you! Chocolate crackles were my favourite treat at a birthday party, I remember I would scan the birthday table for chocolate crackles and my eyes would light up if I spotted them!
These have the flavor and the crunchy rice bubble-like texture that ‘normal’ chocolate crackles have, so try them out on your kids. That is your ‘big’ kids or little ones both will love them!
So simple to make, just put all the dry ingredients in a bowl, combine the wet ingredients and mix together! Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until set. Yep, it’s that simple!
Makes = 18 small
1 cup dehydrated buckwheat*
½ cup cacao powder
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup desiccated coconut
1 tsp vanilla powder
¼ tsp good salt
½ cup cacao butter, shaved & melted
½ coconut oil, melted
½ cup agave syrup
Mix together all the dried ingredients.
Add the shaved cacao butter to a stainless steal bowl and place over a saucepan of boiling water. Reduce the heat to low (or turn off) to slowly melt the cacao butter but not destroy all the raw nutrients and goodness.
Once melted, add the coconut oil and allow the heat to melt it too. Then mix together the wet ingredients and add to the dry ingredients. Combine thoroughly and spoon into little patty pans and chill for 30 minutes or until set. Store in an airtight container for up to a week or more….if they last that long!
* You can buy dehydrated buckwheat through two fabulous companies either Loving Earth or 2Die4Nuts. So you don’t need a dehydrator to make this recipe!
