Last year for Christmas I needed some last-minute gifts. And, since I had quite some chocolate left, I decided to try some Chocolate Crisps. I hope this is the right word. In German we call them Schokocrossies, but google told me that they are called Chocolate Crisps in English. Anyways – in case it is not the right word: I am talking about crispy chocolate snacks 😛
I told a few people about my plan and they told me how much efford it would be to do these myself. That I needed some kind of oil or fat and that it would take ages to dry and that everything would be dirty and sticky and and and.
I searched the internet for a good recipe and there really were some using fat. “In order to make them look more shiny” I decided I did not need shiny chocolate crisps. I decided to stick to my original plan which was very easy, quite fast and the best – everyone loved the result.
So here is my recipe.
- Chocolate (any kind)
- Corn flakes (and/or almonds)
Break the chocolate into pieces and put it into a heatproof bowl.
Melt the chocolate. Use your favorite technique here. I used the microwave.
Stir in corn flakes (or almonds). Don’t hesitate to stir in a lot. But all flakes should be covered in chocolate.
Use a spoon to put little piles of chocolate-flakes-mix onto a baking tray, covered with paper. Let them dry.
Done! Take the dried chocolate crisps and put them wherever you want to store them. Enjoy! 🙂
