My eldest daughter has a myriad of food allergies so when it comes to Easter treats our options are very limited.
Last year I gave up on searching throughout the city, and online for suitable options and took matters into my own hands. I decided to play around with an idea I had for low allergen chocolate crackle eggs.
They turned out so well I will definitely be making these again this week!
These are just too cute, and yummy, to keep to myself ladies....so here is the recipe and how to make your own beautiful homemade Easter crackle eggs.....And with no cooking involved the kids will love assisting you on this holiday project
CHOCOLATE EASTER CRACKLES
(I have listed the low allergen ingredients I use, but of course the regular Chocolate crackles recipe will be just as delightful if you don't have allergies to worry about)
What you will need:
Chocolate Easter egg moulds
4 cups Freedom Foods Gluten free Rice Bubbles
1 cup Gluten Free icing sugar
1 cup Organic, preservative free desiccated coconut
250g copha®*, chopped
3 tbsp cocoa
Sweet Williams Gluten Free/Dairy Free Chocolate block
Gluten free/natural coloured sprinkles
In a large bowl, mix the rice bubbles, icing sugar, cocoa & coconut.
In a saucepan slowly melt the copha over a low heat. Then allow to cool slightly.
Add melted copha to rice bubbles mixture, stirring until well combined.
Spoon mixture into chocolate Easter egg moulds and press in firmly
Refrigerate until firm
Once firmly set....
Slowly melt the chocolate block in a bowl over a pot of boiling water
Once melted remove crackles from fridge, turn out of moulds and rest gently on cake rake
Dip the smaller end of each each crackle egg into the melted chocolate and replace on cake rack...it may be a good idea to have some grease proof paper of a plate under the rack to catch any chocolate drips
Sprinkle chocolate coated end and get back into the fridge
Remember Chocolate crackles do melt in hot weather so keep them refrigerated as long as possible before serving.
I tied different ribbons around the middle of each egg for a finishing touch.
I'd love to hear how you go if you make the eggs and see pics of your creations!!
