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 tablespoon cocoa powder
35 ml vegetable oil
100g all purpose flour
4g baking powder
65g coconut yogurt*
--- RAINBOW SURPRISE ---
105g ricotta cheese
65g Sour Patch Kids Cereal flour (divided into 5 colours)
1/2 tablespoon sugar
--- GLAZE ---
Sour Patch Kids Cereal crumbles
Divide Sour Patch Kids Cereal in 5 colours and put them in 5 different bowls.
Reduce each coloured cereal into cereal flour with a blender or a food processor and then put them back in the bowls.
Create the surprise balls adding 21g of ricotta cheese in each bowl and mix with a spoon until you get a shapeable consistency.
Form 5 balls and place them in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and prepare your muffin tin.
In a bowl break the egg and beat it slightly with a fork.
Add sugar, oil, yogurt and cocoa and mix with a spoon.
Fold in sifted flour and baking powder and mix quickly with a rubber spatula.
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).
Cover with 1 tablespoon of batter (they need to be only 3/4 full).
Bake for about 20 minutes. Let it cool before glazing them.
Spread Nutella on top of the muffins and garnish with Sour Patch Kids Cereal crumble.
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! :)
