Chocolate Macaroons ala Cricket 


  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 cups of oats
  • 1 cup of Crispy Aketta Whole Crickets


Combine all ingredients except the crickets, then when sticky consistency is reached, and you may need to adjust wet / dry ratio, gently fold in the crickets. Batter should be able to be molded easily into a cookie form. Putting butter or oil on hands will help keep the batter from sticking to your skin.

Place cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil, refrigerate at least 2-3 hours.
