Hey you! Hope you’re doing great or at least emotionally stable these days.
Me? Apparently, I moved on from making sourdough to sweeter goods. Yesterday I decided on putting one of my own recipes to test and changing it a little bit but really my main goal was to come up with an easier crust for cheesecakes or tarts with no flour or nuts needed.
We love Honey Bunches cereal here at home, it is sometimes my chosen Netflix snack…nothing better than a big bowl of Honey Bunches, some coconut milk and fresh strawberries. I’ll just go straight to the point, today I have for you a Chocolate Honey Bunches cereal crust. And no this is NOT sponsored BUT IT SHOULD.
4 cups of your preferred Honey Bunches cereal version. The one we always buy is Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds Cereal.
1 tbsp white sugar.
½ tsp kosher or pink salt.
2 tbsp cocoa powder (unsweetened).
1/3 cup or either melted butter or melted coconut oil.
Preheat your oven at 350 F.
Blend the cereal until you get a breadcrumb consistency. You don’t want a powder, but DO NOT worry, if you get a powder this will work just as fine.
Use a large bowl to add the blended cereal, add the rest of ingredients and mix them together until you get a chocolaty wet mixture.
Place the wet mixture into your mold. This works for tarts, single-crusted pies or cheesecakes.
Bake for 10 minutes. Let it cool, dd your filling and bake again as instructed by your filling recipe.
I am almost certain that you can follow this recipe with almost any cereal, try it! And let me know how that went.
I am pleased to inform you that my mascarpone filling perfectly works as cheesecake. The pictures below show what I did, I didn’t change any ingredient, and I didn’t even use a water bath! The only modifications were: I used the full recipe for ONE cheesecake AND I baked for 90 minutes.
Also, the pictures below show a pink strawberry coulis (or jam). The recipe is the same I used in my Blueberry Mascarpone tart recipe, only with strawberries instead, you can follow that recipe word by word.
Stay safe! Wash your hands and please OH PLEASE, wear a mask!
