These super yummy star shaped Chocolate Crackles are the perfect sweet treat for Christmas. Plus everyone can enjoy them, cos gluten free, dairy free and low in sugar – yay!


  • 3 cups unsweetened rice puffs
  • 1 cup crunchy natural peanut butter
  • 200g, dark chocolate 85% cacao or above, dairy free
  • 1/4 cup honey or rice malt syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or butter depending on your dietary requirements.


  1. Grease and line a slice tin with baking paper.
  2. Break the chocolate into pieces, transfer to a microwave proof jug or bowl and microwave on high for one minute. Give the chocolate a stir and then microwave in 10 second bursts until the chocolate has fully melted.  Next, melt the coconut oil/butter in the microwave if you need to.
  3. Pour the rice puffs, peanut butter, honey/rice malt syrup, melted chocolate and melted butter/coconut oil in a mixing bowl. Stir until well combined.
  4. Transfer the chocolate crackle mixture to the lined slice tin, using the back of a spoon to flatten the top of the mixture.
  5. Place the slice tin the fridge for an hour, or until set. Once set, lift the baking paper out of the tin and use a star shaped cookie cutter to make 12-star shaped Christmas chocolate crackles. Or just cut into slices, if you’re short on time.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.


  • Bonus! When you cut out the star shapes there will be off cuts. If you don’t polish them off there and then, pop them in a sealed container and eat them for brekkie with milk, yoghurt and berries. Just like a chocolate milk shake only crunchy!
  • Can’t be bothered cutting out the stars? I don’t blame you. These Chocolate Crackles are just as yummy served as a slice or in patty cases, anytime of year.
  • Find unsweetened rice puffs in the health food aisle, or just use oats instead.
