Red Velvet Flummery Crackle Slice
Ingredients:
Chocolate Crackle Base
Red Velvet Flummery
Dark Chocolate Topping
Method:
Chocolate Crackle Base
  1. Line the base and sides of a 5cm-deep, 20cm square cake tin with baking paper, allowing the paper to extend 3cm above the sides.
  2. Place the Copha and chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir until melted.
  3. Add Rice bubbles, coconut and cocoa powder and mix well.
  4. Press crackle mixture into the prepared pan and flatten the top. Refrigerate until required.
Red Velvet Flummery
  1. Place jelly crystals into a heatproof bowl. Pour over boiling water and stir to dissolve. Add remaining cold water and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes, or until mixture is thick and syrupy.
  2. Use electric beaters to beat the cream on medium speed until soft peaks form. Reduce speed to low and gradually beat in jelly and cocoa powder.
  3. Increase speed to medium-high and beat until firm peaks just form.
  4. Fold in enough food colouring to tint to a bright red colour. Pour mixture over crackle base and smooth the top. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.
Dark Chocolate Topping
  1. Just before serving, melt chocolate and Copha together in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir until smooth and melted. Cool slightly before drizzling over the red velvet slice. Sprinkle over freeze-dried strawberries.
  2. Use a warm, sharp knife to cut into bars. Serve immediately.
Tips & Hints:
  • Slice will keep for 2 days in a sealed container in the fridge. Decorate just before serving.
  • Chocolate and Copha can be melted in the microwave. Place into a microwave-safe bowl and heat on HIGH for 1-2 minutes. Stir until melted and smooth.

A bit different to what I was expecting but it was fluffy and nice like flummery is supposed to be. I think I was expecting raspberry flavor but red velvet is probably the right description. I’ll make this again for a party. A little goes a long way and a bit of cream was good too.
