Okay, if that doesn't help, someone asking the same question in another thread was told to use something called "trex" if they couldn't find copha.

LOL - Chocolate crackles were part of every Aussie's childhod party -
Thats why we all know what Copha is.

What ever you do - don't ever use shortening as a replacement for Copha.
Copha is a coconut oil solid - unlike shortening.


Here is another Australian favourite using copha.
