Coconut Chocolate Brandy Crackles

Ok I confess these originally started off as that lovely soft fudge but I got a little bored waiting for it to set so back to the oven it went and these little beauties were born. Yes, I admit it, I have the attention span of a 3 yr old.

Makes 12 large squares

400g dark chocolate, chopped
400g can sweetened condensed milk
75g butter, chopped
1/4 cup Brandy
2 1/2 cups Rice bubbles
1/2 dessicated coconut
glazed cherries to decorate


  • Line a 5cm-deep, 8cm x 26cm (base) bar pan with baking paper, allowing a 2cm overhang at long ends and grease it as well.
  • Combine chocolate, condensed milk and butter in a saucepan. Stir over low heat until chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in liquor.
  • Next add the rice bubbles and the dessicated coconut into the mixture and give it a good stir till combined.
  • Spread mixture into prepared pan, and flatten well with the back of a large metal spoon. Sprinkle some dessicated coconut over the top decorate with the cherries. Refrigerate for 30 mins or until set. Cut into squares. Serve.
