This recipe is featured in my 'What’s for Dessert?' ebook…which complete, beautiful, sweet, ebook of course is available as part of your Insider Club membership. Now that you own that Thermomix come and join me, it is a lot of fun and you get great stuff!
So…this one is for real chocolate lovers…or cheesecake lovers…me? I fit both categories equally well…be a lover, go on, it’s much better than being a hater. (But you better hit the gym a few times, less guilt with more cheesecake, or chocolate, or honeycomb or whatever takes your fancy!)
This pic features homemade honeycomb from the Thermomix 6. I also added cream of tartar in the beginning of the cooking time and it turned into this amazing crunchy light and slightly orange looking honeycomb. Truly the best I have made yet using the 6. You can of course stick with the yellow version from stores.
