For Valentine's day I figured we could go off the diet, so I decided to try to recreate the Furikake Puffs we had on our day at the North Shore. But really this snack is great any day of the year, you can mix it up and use the sauce with any combination of cereal, nuts or crunchies!
Furikake Puff Mix
inspired by Hawaiian Airlines Cookbook (circa 2001)
1/4 c butter
3 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp shoyu (soy sauce)
1/4 c oil
1/4 c corn syrup
dash red chili pepper (optional)
1 box Corn Puffs (12.3 oz.)
1 bottle Nori Komi Furikake (1.9 oz. bottle)
*If you use the 17.5 oz. size box, just double the sauce recipe*
1. Pre heat oven to 250 degrees. Heat butter, sugar, shoyu, syrup and oil till sugar dissolves.
3. Slowly drizzle sauce over cereal and sprinkle furikake over puffs. If you like a little heat, sprinkle red chili pepper flakes over cereal. Mix so furikake and sauce is evenly spread.
You can eat these sweet salty puffs of goodness alone, or mix it with popcorn, arare (rice crackers), maybe even peanuts. It can be a little over powering for me, so I mixed a handful with some popcorn and it was To Die For!! Seriously, I texted my friend J just to tell her how good it was- mixing the Furikake Puffs not only makes it last longer but it lightens up the snack as well! Yipee!!!
