Cacao Crispy Cakes

choc crispies

My favourite thing about these rice crispy cakes is how super fast and easy they are to make and how simple the ingredients are to buy. They’re a brilliant treat to make with the kids and perfect to serve up as bite size party food.

The recipe makes 24 mini crispies. That probably equates to 10 – 15 regular, cupcake sized crispy cakes. I like the bite size version because it feels like you’re having a treat without overdoing it … though trying to resist more than one is virtually impossible!

100g rice puffs (make sure they’re just wholegrain rice, with nothing added)

100ml maple syrup / agave syrup or manuka honey (non vegan)

Large heaped tablespoon of cacao powder

50ml melted coconut oil

Warm the syrup and oil in a pan, stir in the cacao powder until it’s all melted and creates a lovely, smooth, chocolatey liquid. Turn the heat off.

Stir in the rice puffs, ensuring they’re nicely coated in liquid chocolate.

Allow to cool a little (but not too much) and spoon the sticky rice puffs into cupcake papers. I find this easier to do with the papers inside a cupcake tray.

Place in the fridge to set.
