Suggestion: If you'd like to gift these awesome, spicy flakes to someone, or simply store them for yourself, pour the finished flakes into glass canning jars with 2 piece screw on lids (the ring & disc kind). Print and cut out these Fire Nation symbols to place in between the lid pieces & there you go!
Fire Nation Flaming Fire Flakes
1 Tbsp. Granulated White Sugar
1 Pkg. Taco Seasoning
1 tsp. Garlic Salt
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. Ground Red Pepper Powder
4 Heaping Cups Plain Corn Flakes
4 Tbsp. Sesame Oil
1. Preheat your oven to 275 F. In a small bowl whisk together the 1st 4 ingredients until combined.
Spice Note: Depending on how flaming you want your flakes, put either the 1/4 or 1/2 tsp. red pepper, or omit it all together if you're fine with taco seasoning level flames.
2. Pour the corn flakes into a large container with a lid & then pour on the sesame oil. Close the lid & toss well until the flakes are completely coated. Add the mix of dry ingredients, close the lid, & toss again until the seasoning is distributed evenly throughout the flakes.
3. Line a tray with parchment paper & pour the seasoned flakes onto the tray. Spread the flakes out evenly & bake for about 15 minutes. Serve warm.
Serving Suggestions: Add 1 Tbsp. sesame seeds (black or white, or both) to the seasoning mix for added flavor, texture, & color. You could also mix the finished flakes with crumbled seaweed (especially if you can find kimchi flavored). It adds extra Asian flair & flavor, & the colors look really great together. Also, fire flakes are great as a snack but they're also great crushed & sprinkled on plain white rice!
