Hints & Tips

  • Using the finer side of a grater makes the binding of the ingredients somewhat easier as it clumps more readily in this form.
  • If not using immediately, store these immediately in an airtight container once they are cooled and crisp.
  • To turn rice crackers into a crisp sweet treat, break up the contents of a 100g packet of plain flavour SPAR Rice Crackers, to pieces no smaller than the size of a thumbnail.
  • For a sweet snack using rice crackers, melt 100g chocolate with 2ml ground cinnamon and toss lightly into the biscuits. Turn the mixture onto a sheet of wax-wrap, and spread it out as much as possible, Sprinkle 15ml cinnamon sugar over , tossing lightly as the chocolate sets. Store in an airtight jar at room temperature.
