Introduction: How to Make Chocolate Crackles

About: I love cooking, finding out about everything, and craft-work. You can read about read enthralling adventures and discover enticing recipes on a blog I nurture to keep my writing alive.

Growing up in New Zealand in the Seventies meant that sitting on every table at every child's birthday party, you could always find a plate of Chocolate Crackles just waiting to be devoured by a herd of over-excited children. The Seventies seem to be coming back into fashion (please don't bring back lamé jumpsuits.....), so I decided to resurrect this old childhood favourite.

Chocolate Crackles are incredibly easy to make and do not need any cooking, except for melting the butter, so could happily be made with just the use of a microwave.

I have entered this crackles recipe in the FAT contest as one of the main ingredients is butter!
