    Shoot it as a practical effect with a real biscuit on a chroma key background, then place it over the appropriate background using Keylight in After Effects.  That is by far the easiest and fastest way to do it.  There is a bonus: it looks absolutely real because it IS real.

    Strictly inside AE you have two options. Shatter using custom shatter maps and masking + particle effects. Neither would be as conviceing as Dave's solution.

     

    If you have access to a 3D app (blender is free) you can do it there.

     

    Here's a 2 minute project in AE with a stock image:

    with a shot of the broken buscuit top animated to fit the split it might be kind of convincing.

    Here's the CS6 AEP project file for you to play with. Take a look at all of the elements to see how this worked by selecting all layers and then pressing the u key twice to see everything I changed.
