Chocolate Crackle Spiders

choc-crackles-spidersSo Halloween can be an over the top sugar-fest.

If the kids are going to a Halloween party (and of course they still want to join in the fun) then here’s a version of chocolate crackles that are sugar free and fructose free, but more fudge than crunch.

Good for all little (and big) ghosts, ghouls and monsters!

  • Makes: 12 cupcake size (24 mini size)
  • Refrigerate 1-2 hours to set
  • Preparation time: 20 mins
  • Pan size: 12-hole silicon muffin pan or 12 patty pans

2 cups puffed rice (available in the health food aisle at the supermarket)
220g coconut oil (or can use copha)

½ cup shredded coconut
2 tablespoons cocoa powder

Extra
¾ cup desiccated coconut
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 tablespoons The Sugar Breakup Organic Golden Rice Malt Syrup

Let’s get crack-ling!

  1. Combine puffed rice, shredded coconut and cocoa powder in a bowl.

  3. Measure out ½ cup of the melted coconut oil, place in a separate small bowl.
