  • 1/4 cup brown rice syrup
  • 2 tablespoons refined coconut oil
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup plain, unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 2-3 tablespoons finely ground coconut sugar or sucanant optional
  • 4 cups cornflakes (or puffed rice cereal)


  1. Have paper cupcake liners ready for the finished Crackles. You'll need 12 liners.

  2. Add the brown rice syrup and coconut oil to a large pot over low heat. Whisk together until the coconut oil has melted.
  3. Remove from heat and whisk in the cocoa powder, non-dairy milk, and sugar, if using. Stir to combine everything thoroughly.
  4. Gently fold in the cornflakes into the chocolate mixture and carefully mix until they’re completely coated.
  5. Use a large spoon or scoop to form the mixture into balls, and place them in paper cupcake liners. You'll need about 1/4 cup for each one.

  6. Allow the crackles to cool completely. Once the chocolate has cooled, the mixture will form chocolaty clusters.
