Chocolate Crackle Bars

With the school holidays just around the corner, we thought it would be the perfect time to share with you our Chocolate Crackle Bars recipe – made by Sam @Wholesome Patisserie.

These beauties will remind you of the chocolate crackles we all grew up enjoying at kids parties, but without the copha or additive-laced rice bubbles, just organic goodness.

What’s best about these crackles, is the addition of our delicious Little Gems – cute little buttons of organic chocolate covered in a crispy candy shell, coloured and flavoured with natural fruit and plant extracts.

Make this easy to follow recipe with the kids over the school break, for a healthier alternative and relive this childhood retro classic!
