CHOCO METEORITES: CRISPY PUFFED RICE BALLS / +VEGAN VERSION (FEBRUARY MENU)


WIKI NOTE:  Choco Krispies (known as Choco Krispis, Cocoa Krispies, Coco Pops, or Choco Pops outside of the United States) is a breakfast cereal produced by Kellogg's.
Cocoa Krispies first appeared in the United States in 1958, represented by a chimpanzee named Jose. He was quickly replaced by Coco the Elephant in 1959 when Mexican-Americans complained. In 1963, the Hanna-Barbera character Snagglepuss took over as the mascot. Ogg the Caveman took over in 1968. In 1971, Tusk the Elephant became the mascot of the cereal, and he remained until 1982. Snap, Crackle and Pop (the mascots of Rice Krispies) also became the mascots for Cocoa Krispies starting in 1982. In 1991, the mascot became Coco the Monkey. In 2001, Snap, Crackle, and Pop returned, and they remain the product's mascots.

CHOCO METEORITES 

YOU WILL NEED:  *vegan recipe
2 cups of crispy puffed rice (Choco Krispies or Rice Krispies by Kellogg's)
Half a cup of cocoa powder /*vegan cocoa powder
Half a cup of icing sugar /* icing brown sugar
A handful of shredded coconut, to taste
2 or 3 tablespoon of margarine /*vegan margarine
A handful of small raisins, to taste

LET´S COOK!
1. Put 2 cups of crispy puffed rice in a bowl. Add cocoa powder, icing sugar, raisins and  shredded coconut. Mix everything with a wooden spoon.
2. Melt the margarine in a small saucepan. Add it to the bowl and mix everything well until the mix is a bit sticky.
NOTE: Add more Margarine if you need to, to make the mixture sticky enough. The mixture has to be clumping easily to make the little balls.
3. Cut wide strips of cling film. Then cut the strips in half to make it square shapes (roughly 12).
4. Take a handful of the mixture. Place it on a square shape of cling film and wrap it up, knotting the end so it is tight. Use string to tie the meteorites. The result should be a small ball (kind of egg size) of the mixture wrapped in a cling film.
5. Put each ball in an egg carton or cupcake cases. Leave them in the freezer for a while, even a day or more is all right.
NOTE: The crunchy meteorites have to be really cold like an ice-cream because they come from the space.
6. Take the meteorites out from the freezer, wait for a while and sprinkle a bit of icing sugar on them.
  • LET'S MAKE SOME CRUNCHY METEORITES!
1. Stick each crunchy meteorite on a wooden skewer. Make as many meteorites as you want.
2. Wrap an orange up in aluminium foil. Stick the meteorites into the orange. There you have the planet with its yummy, yummy crunchy meteorites.
