Chocolate Crackles

Recipes for the Special Needs Classroom: Chocolate Crackles - thehandyhedgehog.wordpress.com

I had a great time making chocolate crackles in my special needs classroom. This was the first cooking I attempted, and I was very hesitant and unsure about how it was going to turn out. I was pleasantly surprised. I gave each child a small bowl of coco-pops to explore with their senses. Then each student took turns mixing the mixture and spooning it into the pans. I had actually pre-prepared chocolate crackles for the students to take home, because I was expecting at least one of my students to spit / drool into the mixture or something else equally unhygienic. It turned out that, the extra weren’t necessary. Oh well…. more for me!
