Before we jump into the process of making chocolate crackles with Coco Pops, let’s gather all the necessary ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3 cups of Coco Pops cereal
  • 1 cup of icing sugar
  • 1 cup of desiccated coconut
  • 250 grams of vegetable shortening (or coconut oil for a healthier alternative)
  • 200 grams of dark chocolate, finely chopped


Now that we have all our ingredients ready, let’s proceed with the step-by-step instructions on how to make these delightful chocolate crackles:

Step 1: Prepare the Coco Pops

Begin by pouring the Coco Pops cereal into a large mixing bowl. Ensure that the bowl is big enough to accommodate all the ingredients and allow for easy mixing.

Step 2: Prepare the Chocolate Mixture

In a separate microwave-safe bowl, add the vegetable shortening (or coconut oil) and the finely chopped dark chocolate. Heat the bowl in the microwave, using short bursts of 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between each burst. Continue until the chocolate and shortening (or oil) mixture is completely melted and well combined.

Step 3: Combine the Ingredients

Pour the melted chocolate mixture over the Coco Pops cereal in the large mixing bowl. Using a spatula or a wooden spoon, gently stir until all the cereal is evenly coated with the chocolate mixture.

Step 4: Add the Sweetness

Sift the icing sugar into the bowl containing the coated Coco Pops. Add the desiccated coconut as well. With the help of the spoon or spatula, thoroughly mix all the ingredients together until they are well combined and the Coco Pops are evenly coated.

Step 5: Shape the Crackles

Retrieve a muffin tray and line it with paper cases or cupcake liners. Spoon the mixture into each paper case, dividing it equally among the spaces available in the muffin tray. Press down gently on each scoop of the mixture to shape them into compact crackles.

Step 6: Refrigerate and Set

Place the muffin tray in the refrigerator and allow the chocolate crackles to set for at least 2 hours. This refrigeration time will help the crackles retain their shape and firm up, ensuring a satisfying bite in every mouthful.


After patiently letting the chocolate crackles set in the refrigerator, they are finally ready to be enjoyed. These crunchy treats with a delightful chocolatey taste are perfect for parties, afternoon snacks, or even as a fun activity to do with your little ones. So go ahead and indulge in the irresistible goodness of homemade chocolate crackles made with Coco Pops. Your taste buds will thank you!
