Picture for Oeufs a la Jenny avec Cocoa Krispies inspired by Oliver & Company

975,157 views  This week, we're finally caving to Jess' long-running campaign for the recreation of Oeufs a la Jenny avec Cocoa Krispies from Oliver & Company. Wealthy pets have always been something of a fascination for children's movie plot lines, and this one bucks the trend with a kitten growing up on the mean streets of NYC, not unlike our very own adoptee Bucky. Can I make a version that satisfies the childhood dreams of the film's biggest fan?

5.

Working in batches, fry the cooked/dried rice for about 5-10 seconds. Using a fine mesh sieve, carefully scoop puffed and floating rice from the fry oil and transfer it to a paper towel-line sheet tray.

6.

Once cooled, transfer the puffed rice to a small bowl and toss with the cocao powder.

¼ cup sweetened cocoa powder

Whip the egg whites in the bowl of a stand mixer until doubled in volume, then sprinkle in the sugar while the machine is still running. Continue whipping until the egg white hold stiff peaks.

Spoon the egg whites into the boiling water and cook for 4 minutes, flipping halfway through. The result should be miniature football-shaped clouds.

Prepare the serving bowl of choice with a pool of Chocolate Creme Anglaise. Top with the meringue and homemade cocoa krispies.
