One of the most important factors of successful chocolate crackles is their crunch. This classic way of making chocolate crackles with Copha will always give you the best crunch. Other substitutions will give you a very different result in both taste and texture.
How does Copha create this result? Copha is easy to pour, mixing with the other ingredients evenly and coating each rice bubble grain individually.
Copha holds the crackles together even at room temperature, so no matter when you eat your chocolate crackles they will have a satisfying bite instead of crumbling apart.
Copha also gives crackles that lovely sheen which makes it irresistible for children and adults alike.
Tip: To ensure that every mouthful is crunchy, allow the melted Copha to cool slightly before stirring through the rice bubble mixture.
