This recipe is soooo easy, please give it a go. Whether you have a Thermomix or not, the same result can be achieved with a food processor (though not as quickly!) Please use beautiful ingredients...the better quality your syrup, butter and vanilla, the better the taste. There just is no comparison, and your palette will love you for it! Your hips might complain, but your palate...your palate will thank you.
I love this recipe so much that it will be appearing in a 'real' book soon! It is too good to get lost on this site amongst all the other amazing recipes...don't you agree?
