Chocolate Rainbow Surprise Muffins!
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. INGREDIENTS: 1 egg 1 tablespoon cocoa powder 50g sugar 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 --- Nutella Sour Patch Kids Cereal crumbles DIRECTIONS: 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. Enjoy :) RECIPE NOTES: You can use any kind of yogurt you want but I think vanilla/plain/coconut yogurt will work best with cocoa powder. RECIPE CARD: If you make it let me know! :)
