chocolate and cherry crackles

I treated my little sisters 18th birthday like a 8th birthday and made fairy bread which is fun to make but I used a little too much margarine:

I then made chocolate crackles using the standard recipe and put them into mini cupcake wrappers.

I then stole an idea and a rough recipe from a friend claire for cherry crackles. She had them at her 21st. Many of my teeneage cousins who hated glaced cherries loved these.

Cherry Crackles

4 cups rice bubbles
1 1/2 cup icing sugar
1 cup dessicated coconut
250g copha
1/3 chopped glace cherries
pink food colour

Mix coconut with food colour until it is a nice pink colour. Melt copha and then mix all of the ingredients together. Add more pink colour to mix if needed.

Makes 24 large crackles.


  1. so cute - mini wrappers make them such a good size too!

  2. I love fairy bread! Its a great idea for a party.
