Sugar-Free Chocolate Rice Crispy Cakes (15 bites)
A simple, allergy free (no dairy, no egg, no gluten), low sugar, very tasty sweet treat for class!
- 1 box of creamed coconut
- 50g Dark Choc
- 1/3 bag of rice crispies
- Tablespoon full of sweetener (I usually use maple syrup or stevia)
- Generous handful of sultanas/raisins
Melt the creamed coconut and chocolate in a pan on a very low heat. Once it’s liquid add sweetener, raisins and rice crispies. Use a tablespoon to dish out into paper cupcake holders. Leave to set in the fridge (or freezer if you are in a rush!)
This makes about 15 small bites. You can add 1/2 bag of the rice crispies instead and it makes about 20, but just watch as you don’t want the mixture to be too dry as the cakes will be too crumbly and make a big mess!
