Hi Bianca, do I need to use a particular type of peanut butter to make these refined sugar free? x Christen

Would any nut butter do? We have a peanut allergy.

This was delicious! I don’t even like the old school chocolate crackles but I made this for my son and I’ve now eaten just as much as him! I made this in a standard Lamington tin and it did only fill half the tin so next time I’ll make a double batch.

Could I use almond butter instead of peanut?

Bianca Slade March 10, 2017 - 7:52 pm

Sure can x

I’m not sure where I went wrong but my slice didn’t hold together very well at all! I did use raw honey which was quite solid so maybe that’s why? Any suggestions? It tasted great though! Would definitely love to try making again…

Bianca Slade April 2, 2017 - 12:38 pm

I would suggest heating the honey first, I think that is what has made the difference x

Thank you so much for your reply, I will give this a try! x

Do you mean “rice crispies” when you say puffed rice. Puffed rice isn’t crispy. Thanks.

Loz November 12, 2018 - 9:01 am

Rice crispies have sugar in so I doubt it.

Ellen November 3, 2018 - 11:32 am

De-licious ! And so quick and easy. We made tbe recipe as is, just added some peppermint extract to the top layer! Yum! Thankyou so much!

Barbara November 14, 2018 - 6:18 pm

This didnt go as smoothly as I expected the puffed rice and chocolate mixture just wouldn’t combine properly, even after sitting the bowl in some hot water to attempt to soften the mix….so the topping kept sticking to the loose bubbles and now looks a mess…sure hope it tastes good! Never had a problem with any of you recipes before. Should the cacao, honey and peanut butter mixture be melted before combining.?

Caroline December 4, 2018 - 9:35 pm

You need to work it all in really well with your hands..it does come together. I had enough for 2 tins worth!

Caroline December 4, 2018 - 9:39 pm

This was amazing followed the recipe but used quinoa puffs instead of rice puffs..alittle less sugar n the like in them. $3.95 @ the healthfood store. I had loads of crackle mixture so did 2 tins which need3d a second batch of topping. I put the base in the freezer while the chocolate topping was melting, then pu back in for 15mins as i was dying to try it!! Taking it to work meetinf tmrw 😊

Just love this
It’s so quick and easy and the taste is delicious!
No sugar No flour and just the perfect amount of sweetness and crunch
Thank you!

This one did not work out so well for me. I left it overnight to set but when I cut into it some of it fell apart but also was soggy in taste even though it was a little crispy when I cut into it. Unfortunately I had prepared this to sell for a rescue group and was unable to use it.

Yum! We’re not in Australia at the moment, and can’t get puffed rice that isn’t coated in sugar. So I used puffed wheat. Worked well. Also, I topped with just dark chocolate (100g) excluding the honey and peanut butter – thought the base was sweet enough. Also, worked really well and the family loved it.
