  • 1 teaspoon coconut shaving,
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder,
  • 1 dark chocolate,
  • 1 tablespoon strawberry syrup,
  • 1 blackberry berry from jam,
  • 1 teaspoon orange jam,
  • 1 glass of milk

RECIPE PREPARATION Chocolate rice squirrel:

Boil the rice first in a little water and then when the water has dropped almost completely add the glass of milk and let the rice swell and absorb all the milk. Finally add a little strawberry syrup to sweeten it.

Separately melt the dark chocolate at Bain Marie and then let it cool a bit. Add it to the rice and mix over low heat until it is completely incorporated and the rice turns dark brown. Then place with a large spoon on a white plate piles of rice with chocolate and start arranging it in the shape of a squirrel.

After that, wipe the edges of the plate with a slightly damp napkin. Garnish the whole squirrel with a little cocoa powder. Then from the teaspoon of orange jam we make an acorn that must be placed between the squirrel's paws. We drip a drop of strawberry syrup on the drugstore and put 3 stars of sugar on its neck. Sprinkle a little more coconut over the cream on the belly.

Separately in a large bowl, mix very well the powdered milk with cocoa and finally with the flakes.
Grease a tray or form with margarine and set it aside.
We put the water together with the essences and the sugar, in a saucepan, on a low heat, about 10-15 ', until the sugar melts and the syrup boils a few times. Meanwhile, cut the cube of margarine into pieces and add them to the sugar syrup. Stir and let it simmer, 5-7 'until all the margarine melts.

Take the pan off the heat and so hot, pour the syrup over the mixture in the bowl and mix everything quickly and very well, then turn the contents into a greased pan. Let cool for 3-4 hours, until it hardens (most certainly, from evening to morning).

When hardened, homemade chocolate with expanded brown rice is cut with a sharp knife and served.
Good appetite!

Wash the rice in more water until the water is clean. Let it soak for 10 minutes.
Put the rice in a pot, add water and cook. The first 10 minutes on medium heat, when it starts to boil, simmer for about 2 minutes and return to medium heat. When the water has dropped and you can see the holes in the rice, set it on low heat. After 10 minutes we turn off the heat and leave for another 10 minutes. The whole process is done with the lid on.

In the microwave, heat the vinegar a little and mix it with the sugar and salt until they melt. Put the rice in a bowl, preferably a bamboo bowl and slowly add the vinegar. Mix with a wooden or plastic spoon, with light movements so as not to break the rice grains.
Stir until cool and taste from time to time. If you already feel the vinegar, you don't have to add it.
At the end, the rice will be shiny.
It is used in favorite sushi recipes. See in the video below how to prepare sushi:

How do you beat a chocolate ganache?

Chocolate ganache must be thoroughly cooled before beating. Why beat him? To become airy and creamy, to have an outfit, to be able to pose and shape. The unbeaten throat remains sticky and slightly fluid, no matter how much you cool it. There is a difference from heaven to earth between a beaten ganache and an unbeaten one. A magic happens when you put the blades from the mixer in it and mix it at maximum speed for a few minutes (2-3). & # 8222The fluid chocolate sauce turned under my eyes into a great cake cream! It increased in volume twice and lightened slightly. Cream is the one that helps beat the ganache by incorporating air into its structure. What are you saying? Parka and high cream!

Note: if your ganache is cut, it means you beat it too much! It must be beaten in moderation until it becomes creamy and frothy. A sliced ​​ganache is easily repaired by heating on a steam bath & # 8211 it becomes liquid again & # 8211 then left to cool again (in the fridge) and beat again.

Chocolate ganache cream can be filled with this cakes, CAKE, cookies, macarons. It is fine, with an intense chocolate taste and a creamy consistency. You have seen how simple and fast it is to prepare. Good luck with that!

I also made a chocolate trio flour cake with chocolate ganache & # 8211 see here.

Here you will find the recipes explained step by step for the cake tops classic pandispan (with vanilla)

Chocolate ganache can also be used soft (unbeaten) for certain recipes (see Strawberry and Chocolate Tart)

How much rice is boiled in salted water?

I put the pan on medium heat and waited a few minutes for it to boil. I reduced the fire below it and set the timer to 15 minutes. I stirred occasionally so it wouldn't stick. Make sure that foam forms and the rice swells when boiled!

After 10-12 minutes it looked like this: the grains began to grow in volume. The surrounding liquid begins to become viscous. The grains are still hard, so the rice still needs to be boiled.

After another 3-4 minutes, I started to pay attention to the classes so that they wouldn't stick to the pan or porridge. We don't want a rice with powdered grains like polenta! We taste and orient ourselves & # 8211 because every kind of rice has a different cooking time. I boiled it for a total of 17 minutes (from the moment it started to boil) but it may take 15 or 20-22 minutes for you. If you see that the liquid drops excessively, you can fill it with small portions of warm water (100 ml each).

In the end, the liquid does not have to be completely absorbed by the rice grains. The rice must be flowing, fluid. I put out the fire, pulled the pan aside and put the piece of cold butter. It creates a liaison (link) with the rice and makes it extra creamy. Not to mention the special flavor and taste it gives to the final dish!

I mixed gently in this plain rice until the butter melted. Now you can put the cheese (cheese, parmesan or others) but only if the rice will be eaten as such & # 8211 not as a garnish.

I tasted it salty. Ready! I covered the pan with a lid and let the rice rest for 5 minutes. You will see that it continues to absorb the surrounding liquid and swell.
