Copha is high in salicylates, so it is not on our shopping list, and as a result I have never made chocolate crackles for Oscar. We do make other rice bubble treats, but last week when asked to make “rice bubble cake” I thought I’d try and come up with an alternative recipe. I didn’t need to, I found the perfect one at Taste.com.au.They were so good we made them again this week, but with carob, the colour is paler but they taste pretty much the same.

Low Chemical / Failsafe, Very High Amines

Originally this recipe had 1 tablespoon of caster sugar added at step one. I have since made the recipe with the sugar and it is still quite sweet.
