We held our crackle off today - donna hay's copha-less recipe (on the left) up against the traditional back of the rice bubble box recipe.
I had serious doubts about whether you could take the copha out of the crackle, but in a head to head taste test it was unanimous* - the donna hay recipe came out on top.
Lighter, sweet but less sickly sweet, a more even chocolateyness, and without that greasey feel the copha can leave you with.
I do love a good old fashioned crackle, but I have to say donna might just have turned me - this one is a winner!
*whilst donna's recipe was the winner, I was competing against a 7 year old, so we thought it only fair that my score was divided by 4... after the score adjustment I came in a brave second ;o)
