Chocolate Rainbow Surprise Muffins!

Updated: Mar 9, 2022

Here I am with another surprise muffin recipe, and this time I think it's definitely surprising.

Look at those rainbow ricotta surprises!! They are so cool.

I had so much fun making these muffins and I hope you will make it too.


  • 1 egg

  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder

  • 50g sugar

  • 35 ml vegetable oil

  • 100g all purpose flour

  • 4g baking powder

  • 65g coconut yogurt*


  • 105g ricotta cheese

  • 65g Sour Patch Kids Cereal flour (divided into 5 colours)

  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar

--- GLAZE ---

  • Nutella

  • Sour Patch Kids Cereal crumbles


  1. Divide Sour Patch Kids Cereal in 5 colours and put them in 5 different bowls.

  2. Reduce each coloured cereal into cereal flour with a blender or a food processor and then put them back in the bowls.

  3. Create the surprise balls adding 21g of ricotta cheese in each bowl and mix with a spoon until you get a shapeable consistency.

  4. Form 5 balls and place them in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

  5. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and prepare your muffin tin.

  6. In a bowl break the egg and beat it slightly with a fork.

  7. Add sugar, oil, yogurt and cocoa and mix with a spoon.

  8. Fold in sifted flour and baking powder and mix quickly with a rubber spatula.

  9. Pour 1 tablespoon of batter in each muffin tin (we are making 6 muffins) and then insert 1 coloured ricotta ball in the center (We have 5 ricotta balls so one muffin will be just a regular cocoa muffin).

  10. Cover with 1 tablespoon of batter (they need to be only 3/4 full).

  11. Bake for about 20 minutes. Let it cool before glazing them.

  12. Spread Nutella on top of the muffins and garnish with Sour Patch Kids Cereal crumble.

  13. Enjoy :)


  • You can use any kind of yogurt you want but I think vanilla/plain/coconut yogurt will work best with cocoa powder.


If you make it let me know! :)
