Num Noms are all about crazy food creations, the little cute, scented characters are all about creating your own flavour fusion by mixing a little num with a little nom. It’s a recipe for mischief with so many different combinations.
We’ve seen the Cronut (donut and croissant combination), a genius idea, which brought together two of our favourite pastry items into one amazing desert. Next it was the turn of green tea cake, for the slightly more health conscious, which saw a refreshing cake born from a popular hot beverage. More recently, Marks and Spencer introduced the Croloaf, a loaf of bread make out of croissants –yum!
But they are old news and now it is time for Num Noms fans to take to the kitchen and create their own Crazy Creations inspired by the different Num Noms themes and flavours.
We was invited along to join the next Num Noms foodie campaign. we were challenged to get creative in the kitchen to combine the wackiest of flavours and make the tastiest of food combination.
First we had a look through the num noms menu for some inspiration
We picked out the num noms that we wanted to work with and then set to it in the kitchen to create our foodie masterpiece
We picked out
- Maple Sugars who is from the doughnut family
- Bunny carrot who is a veggie
- Softy Mallow who is a marshmallow
- Blueberry Stampit
And we came up with a carrot doughnut with a blueberry and marshmallow centre
- 2 cups plain flour
- 1/4 caster sugar
- 2 carrots grated
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 3/4 milk
- 1 medium egg
- oil for frying
- mini marshmallows
- Combine the dry ingredients together; flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg
- Add in the oil, milk, carrot and egg and mix well
- Heat the oil in a pan. Test the oil with a crumb of bread, if it sizzles and turns brown it’s ready.
- Using a tablespoon, drop the mixture a spoonful at a time into the hot oil. Don’t over fill the spoon as i found that the smaller the better for the doughnut to be cooked all the way through
- Fry until light brown all the way around the doughnut, about 2 minutes each side.
- Remove from hot oil and drain on some paper towels
- Cut a little hole in the bottom of the doughnut and push in a blueberry and marshmallow
- Sprinkle with a little icing sugar and drizzle with maple syrup
These doughnuts are super yummy! They are soft and very tasty. Perfect for an afternoon treat or to put into pack lunches.
What better way to get your children into the kitchen then getting them to create a num nom crazy creation.
