Toy Story 2 – Cheetos

Quick links: Cheetos | Verdict

 

Along with Toy Story and Toy Story 3, Toy Story 2 is among the best Pixar movies out there. I was surprised how much I had forgotten in this movie. It was great watching it again and reliving the past. Sadly, there isn’t much food shown. Luckily, we have one recipe that is finger-lickin’ good (according to Bullseye).

Foods Shown

BullsEye’s Finger-Lickin’ Good Cheese Puffs

This was basically the only food shown. When Woody is trying to get his arm back from Newman’s Al’s pocket, he and Bullseye has to go over a minefield of cheetos puffs.

I found a recipe to make a Cheetos clone. It turned out pretty tasty.

Cheetos
  1. 5 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into ½-inch cubes
  2. ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  3. 1⁄8 teaspoon garlic powder
  4. 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  5. 2 teaspoons yellow cornmeal
  6. 1 c ounces Monterey Jack cheese, finely shredded
Cheese Powder
  1. 2 tablespoons Cheddar cheese powder
  2. ½ teaspoon buttermilk powder
  3. ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  4. ½ teaspoon cornstarch
Make the dough
  1. Mix the butter, salt, and garlic powder in a standing mixer with the paddle (or by hand) at medium-low speed for 2 minutes.
  2. Add the flour, cornmeal, and shredded cheese.
  3. Stir together at low speed until a firm dough forms. It should be about cookie-dough constancy. The dough should be a little flaky, but if it's too flaky and won't hold shape, add a little bit of milk.
  4. Shape into a disc and place and wrap with plastic wrap
  5. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350˚F.
  7. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper
  8. Pinch off small pieces of the chilled dough and gently roll between your palms and fingers to form logs roughly 2 to 2½ inches long and ¼ to ½ inch across.
  9. Place on the prepared baking sheets.
  10. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the pieces are JUST starting to brown
  11. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
Powder
  1. Place the cheese powder, buttermilk powder, salt, and cornstarch in a food processor and whir for 10 to 15 seconds to blend evenly.
  2. Transfer to a large ziplock bag.
  3. Add the cooled Cheetos, seal, and shake gently to coat evenly.

Will it Make you Ride like the Wind Bullseye?

The Cheetos were actually really tasty. The texture wasn’t quite there though. 

Verdict:

Cheetos – 8.5/10
