These are a really easy alternate to the traditional chocolate crackles. They are not as sickly sweet either, so adults can enjoy them.
All you need is 2 table spoons of cream (some recipes say thin cream, but either works) 200 or more grams of Mars Bars Rice bubbles (home brand will be fine) and thats it. I also add chocolate drops and coconut for some different textures, but that is not at all necessary.
Break up the bars and add the cream (I also added coconut at this stage). Microwave in 30 second bursts, stirring at each interval to avoid hot spots (burnt chocolate). Once its all runny, you can either add the rice bubbles directly, or poor into another bowl that has the rice bubbles in it. This actually works better as its easier to distribute and you don’t end up with a heap of chocolate stuck to the bottom of the bowl.
Allow to cool slightly (you can put it in the fridge) so that you can roll the mix into balls. When its hot its just too sticky and you can’t get it off your hands. If you are going to add extra chocolate drops, do it when the mixture is cooler so they don’t melt.
I’ve made something similar but in a slice with chocolate ganache over the top. I like the idea of using the cupcake cases, because it’s not as messy. Yum!
Thanks for stopping by. You reminded me of the Mars Bar slice I have not made for years. Might have to have a crack at that again one day soon. 🙂
