Chocolate Crackles

It was Matilda's god-sister K's 5th birthday this week, and we went to her birthday party yesterday (which thanks to the CRAZY warm weather for August ended up being a pool party! August! It isn't even Spring yet!!). Our oven's thermostat is broken, and I just had to contribute some kind of sweet offering to the array of delights available, so chocolate crackles were the ideal treat! Chocolate crackles are a uniquely antiopodean delight, and have a very exclusive recipe (on the back of every packet of Rice Bubbles). So I made chocolate crackles, tweeting my progress, and with the odd Facebook update or two. My cooking frenzy inspired some curiosity in friends who are not acquainted with this delightful, sweet treat ... so here is the recipe!
