This year our troop chose the country of South Africa to participate in Girl Scout World Thinking Day. As part of our WTD presentation, we thought we would like to offer a little treat to our "visiting" troops. Crunchies are popular cookie (or biscuit) in South Africa and are reminiscent of a chunchy-style granola bar. There are several recipes out there on the web. I based our recipe mostly on this recipe from "Lick Your Own Bowl". I adapted the recipe a bit for American ingredients and added a chocolate drizzle on top for an extra finish. Truthfully, they are excellent plain and actually my daughter prefers them that way!
* may substitute dark corn syrup if you can't find the cane syrup.
