Snap. Crackle. Pop.

Ok so here it is as promised - the CHOCOLATE CRACKLE RECIPE from Heaven.

It's an adaptation of a recipe I got from an online course I've been doing for almost a year now.

1 cup buckwheat
3/4 cup coconut oil
1 cup coconut
6 tbsp cacao
4 tbsp agave syrup

Soak the buckwheat overnight in a bowl of water (make sure it's well immersed), then rinse it well when you bound out of bed! And dehydrate until it's crunchy (usually about 12hrs; if you don't have a dehydrator you can use your oven on 45 degrees).

Throw all your ingredients into a bowl (like my 'bowl'? Having recently moved house you come to slowly realise what you do and dont have in your kitchen. Note to self; buy a big mixing bowl).

Melt your coconut oil over a hot bowl of water, and then mix all the ingredients together. This is my favourite part. The smell of chocolate starts to take over... the sound of wet and dry ingredients merge making sticky sounds... mmm childhood no?

Once well incorporated, TASTE TEST! I think this is my favourite part! A good cook always taste tests (but make sure you leave some to put into patty pans)!!
If you're taste buds want it sweeter, add more agave. If they want something chewy through it, add some raisins. EXPERIMENT! And then spoon your delicious mixture into little patty pans and refrigerate to set!

(Take to college and watch the girls melt) :)
