Mars Bar Christmas Crackle Recipe

I found this on the net the other day and couldn’t resist sharing this with everyone.  I think I just might have to make these for Christmas Day.  Yummy.

Mars Bar CracklesChocolate crackles are a kids’ favourite at every birthday party. Now you can amp up the chocolate flavour with this Mars Bar version of the traditional chocolate crackle. And if you want to make them a little bit healthier, you could add a handful of dried fruit too.
200g Mars Bars, chopped
2 tbsp of pouring (thin) cream
2 tsp cocoa powder, sifted
3 cups Rice Bubbles
Canola spray
100g white chocolate
24 red Smarties or M&M’s
Spray a little canola spray into 2 x 12 cup mini-muffin trays.
Melt the Mars Bars, cream and cocoa in a glass bowl over simmering water. The bowl should not touch water. Stir the mixture until smooth.
Put the Rice Bubbles in a separate large bowl, pour in the chocolate mixture and stir until well mixed.
Spoon the mixture into the muffins tray and press down gently.
Refrigerate for 2 hours and turn out onto a tray to decorate.
Melt the white chocolate in the microwave checking and stirring it at 30 second intervals. Pour it into a piping bag while warm and snip the tip off.
Turn the crackles upside down and pipe the chocolate on. Finish with a red Smartie on top of each one.
These crackles could be made more Christmasy by adding 2/3 cup of either mixed fruit, chopped cherries and currants (if you are not partial to mixed peel in the mixed fruit) or apricots and slivered almonds.
