It seems being a pack rat runs in the family. Master 5 has been clipping recipes from cereal boxes. The problem is, because of the move, and Oma's ruthless cleaning, he's clipped (and lost) the same recipe 3 times. I saw this recipe in his cupboard the other week, just before my mother came around to help me tidy, something she does once a month, and the next day it was gone. I wasn't about to buy more cereal to go through all that again, so yesterday at the supermarket I took a photo of that side of the box.
This also allowed me to buy Cocoa Puffs, instead of Rice Puffs, because these recipes always taste better with a little extra chocolate. We added a cup of sultanas, but that turned out to be a mistake, because then they were too crumbly to shape, so then I had to melt some chocolate, and that made it too wet... here follows the recipe as I should have done it.
Hazelnut Coconut Puffs
3/4 cup hazelnut spread
3 cups Rice Bubbles/Coco Pops
2 cups desiccated coconut
1 extra large egg
1/4 cup 100s & 1000s
Melt the hazelnut spread and butter together on low heat. Be careful not to scorch the spread. Cool slightly.
Mix the coco pops and 1 cup of the coconut in a large bowl. Mix in the hazelnut mixture and the egg and stir well. Squeeze mixture into small bowls.
Combine the remaining coconut and the 100s & 1000s in a shallow bowl, and roll the balls in to coat. Chill until firm.
Makes 25, and a large tray full when everyone is sick of shaping balls.
