These are a very easy treat from my country of birth, Australia. The Aussie brand of coconut oil or fat there is called, Copha. The brand of coconut oil I used here is called Suraj which comes in a jar but there are other brands that would work too. It has to be the solidified coconut oil. Do NOT use Crisco as a substitute, it won’t taste good.

  • 250g coconut oil
  • 4 cups Rice Krispies
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1/3 cup of cocoa
  • 1 cup shredded coconut

Gently melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan.Cool slightly. Combine the rice bubbles, sifted sugar and cocoa with the coconut in a large bowl. Stir in the coconut oil and mix well. Spoon mixture into paper patty cases and refrigerate until firm, about 40 mins.
