Boozey Chocolate Crackles

I must admit I was never a huge fan of chocolate crackles. I felt cheated because they looked so chocolatey but were not actually made with chocolate :(. I hadn't made them since I was very young and had never really had the urge to until now. 

I was watching TV and saw a little girl eating one. It looked so delicious I just had to have one. I decided  that I needed to put an adult twist on the recipe as they are a bit childish. The answer, RUM! But not just any rum, Captain Morgan Spiced Rum. I've recently been introduced to this Puerto Rican rum and I've never looked back.

The rum gives a delicious taste to these crackles and certainly makes them ADULT ONLY! I wish I had have added some colour to these crackles as they do look a little bland. Maybe I could have just used colourful papers to brighten them up a bit. All these things I will take into consideration next time, but you can learn from my hindsight.

Boozey Chocolate Crackles

(Recipe adapted from the back of the Rice Bubbles Box and here)

What you will need

4 cups Rice Bubbles
250g Copha
1 cup icing sugar
1 cup desicated coconut
3 tbsp cocoa
30mls Captain Morgan Rum

What you will need to do

Place cupcake papers on a baking tray and set aside. Place the copha in a saucepan over low heat and stir until melted. Set aside to cool slightly. Place rice bubbles, icing sugar, cocoa and coconut in a large bowl. Add copha and rum and stir until combined. Spoon mixture into cupcake papers and place the tray in the fridge to set.

Although it may be tempting to eat them before they are completely set, I URGE you to let them set properly, they will taste so much better I promise!
