Crunchy Cacao Crackles

Gluten free, dairy free, low sugar


Do you remember eating chocolate crackles as kids? They were usually a big hit at kids birthday parties especially in  the 70’s and 80’s.  They were the ultimate sugar rush. That's what I remember, racing around like a maniac, I could have conquered the world living on those chocolate crackles!

 One of my beautiful customers and I were talking about creating a healthy version for the  kids and families of today. As more parents are aware of how highly processed food and lots of sugar can really influence our kids behaviour, also the rise of children with food allergies is noticeable at all kids parties and schools nowadays.

I've created the healthy version of my  childhood favourite that is just as delicious but without the sugar rush and maniac personality that goes with it! Please enjoy as you reminisce about your childhood whilst giving your family great memories of their own. Parties are fun fun fun!
