If you’ve lived in Australia your whole life like me, you would have had more than your fair share of Chocolate Crackles – most likely at every birthday party you ever went to as a kid.
These tasty treats are a childhood favourite, but let’s be real, I think I love them even more now – and you will too. If you’ve never had the pleasure of trying a Chocolate Crackle, you need to get on this right away.
Thankfully, I’m sharing my easy recipe for homemade Chocolate Crackles so everyone around the world can enjoy this oh-so-sweet treat.
What is a chocolate crackle?
- I’m so glad you asked. Chocolate Crackles are a homemade no bake treat consisting of chocolate and rice cereal, like Rice Bubbles or Rice Krispies.
- Some recipes use cocoa powder and sugar but I use real chocolate in my Chocolate Crackles. Trust me – it’s the BEST.
- Many recipes use copha to help stick the crackle together, which is essentially shortening. But in my opinion, it makes your crackles waxy and it has a soapy mouthfeel. So instead, my crackles use real chocolate and a little coconut oil for their sticking power 💪🏻
Do chocolate crackles need to be refrigerated?
- Yes! Keep these Chocolate Crackles in the fridge to ensure they keep their crunch.
Are chocolate crackles gluten free?
- You can make these Chocolate Crackles gluten free by using a gluten free rice cereal and gluten free chocolate. You could also make these vegan by using vegan chocolate.

- 1 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 350 grams (2 and 1/3 cups) good quality dark or milk chocolate*, plus extra for drizzling
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- Line a 12-hole muffin pan with cupcake liners. In a large mixing bowl, add rice cereal, coconut and cocoa powder.
- Break up the chocolate and place it in a small heat-proof bowl. Microwave the chocolate, stirring every 20 seconds, until smooth and melted. Add coconut oil and stir until smooth.

*I prefer to use a mix of half dark chocolate and half milk chocolate
