Our friend Nick is planning on coming down from Melbourne to terrorise the children, and requested we make him some chocolate crackles. Now, I could have made the "proper", more traditional, recipe, but I don't really like copha, and I think my recipe is a lot nicer. Easier too. (For all my Northern Hemisphere readers, when I say Mars Bars, I mean Milky Ways, or any generic chocolate coated, caramel topped, whipped fluffy nougat type confection. And Coco Pops are chocolate flavoured Rice Crispies.)
Mars Bar Chocolate Crackles
200g chopped Mars Bars
70g chopped milk chocolate
3 cups coco pops
Melt first three ingredients, either in the microwave, or in a saucepan over low heat. Stir frequently to ensure a smooth mixture, and prevent burning. Plus, it will give everyone a turn to stir.
Don't let the mixture cool down too much during stirring, or it will start setting too early. Mix in the coco pops.

Place spoonfuls into patty cases, and refrigerate until set, about 2-3 hours.
