Aussie/New Zealand Treat ~ Chocolate Crackles

4 cups Rice Krispies
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa
1 cup shredded coconut, optional
250 grams solid coconut oil
In a large bowl, mix the Rice Krispies, powdered sugar, cocoa, and coconut (if using).
Over low heat, melt the coconut oil in a saucepan and allow to cool slightly.
Add to Rice Krispies mixture and stir until well combined.
Spoon mixture into cupcake liners and refrigerate until firm.
Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. I’m not sure how many it’s supposed to make, but I used 12 regular cupcake liners. You could easily make them smaller and get 24, or use mini liners.
