How to Make Choco Crossies (Schoko Crossies) at Home
My daughter loves Choco Crossies. I mean REALLY LOVES Choco Crossies. Whenever I bring them home from Germany, no matter how many boxes I stuff into the suitcase, they vanish within the week. To keep her happy (and to lighten the load in my suitcase) I learned How to Make Choco Crossies (aka Schoko Crossies) here at home. I know, it seems like it should be easy… chocolate, flakes and almonds. But getting the flavor and texture right just needs a few tweaks.
How to Make Choco Crossies (Shoko Crossies) at Home
As much as I just wanted to melt a bunch of semi-sweet chocolate chips and be done with it, it just wasn’t right. You need to mix in a bit of milk chocolate to sweeten up the flavor. Also, because chocolate chips don’t have enough fat in them… you have to add some. I found shortening to be the easiest, but i understand you can add butter or coconut oil.
This recipe makes about 30 of the Cookie Sized treats. You can make them smaller… or make fewer GIANT SIZED crossies. And if you want to be fancy, serve them up in Cupcake Liners. (This also keeps them from melting together.
Choco Crossies Recipe
Actually, the most difficult part of making Choco Crossies is waiting for them to set.
Store the Choco Crossies in airtight containers … you can put waxed paper or the used parchment paper to separate the layers so they don’t melt or stick together. If it’s hot where you live, store them in the refrigerator. Keep in mind that the extra fat that makes the chocolate smooth also makes it melty.

Step by Step Instructions for Choco Crossies
Try making Choco Crossies instead of cookies some time. You don’t have to turn on the oven, and I guarantee they will vanish moments after you put out the plate…
Have your ingredients ready
While the Chocolate is Melting with the Shortening, Put the Almonds and Corn Flakes in a larger bowl.
Pour the Melted Chocolate Over the Corn Flakes and Almonds
Stir the chocolate with a spatula so that no corn flake is showing
Use Two Spoons to scoop up and shape the mix into clumps
Put the lumps on a prepared Cookie Sheet (I used parchment paper)
Repeat until you have used all the mixture up
Leave alone until the chocolate sets… you can hurry this in the refrigerator
