      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

    Flapjack
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 180°C and line a baking tin (23x33cm).

    2. Place 90g pecans in mixing bowl and chop 3 secs/sp4. Transfer to a bowl and then place this bowl on top of mixing bowl and weigh in 200g chocolate chips. Set aside. Clean and dry mixing bowl.

    3. Place 280g butter, 250g light brown sugar, 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda, .25 (quarter) tsp fine sea salt into mixing bowl and melt 3 mins/60°C/sp2 until melted and combined.

    4. Add 280g plain flour, 245g oats and mix 1 min 20 sec//sp3 until well-combined.

    5. Pour half mixture (520g) into prepared tin, evenly spread, then press down using the back of a metal spoon/damp hands. Bake 180°C for 10 mins. (Once baked, remove from oven, place tin on a wire rack and leave to cool). Place remaining mixture into a bowl and set aside. Clean and dry mixing bowl. Continue with caramel sauce.

  3. 6. Place 120g butter, 150g dark brown sugar, 120g glucose syrup, .25 (quarter) tsp cream of tartar into mixing bowl and cook 10 mins/120°C/sp3, placing simmering basket instead of measuring cup onto mixing bowl lid.

    7. Add 220g sweetened condensed milk and vanilla and cook 15 mins/120°C/sp3, placing simmering basket instead of measuring cup onto mixing bowl lid.

    8. Sprinkle nuts and choc chips over cooled base.

Tip

Chocloate chips - I use Dark chocolate but Milk chocolate could be used, depending on preference. Chopped chocolate could also be used n place of chocolate chips.

Serves 20 if sliced into larger portions. For higher yield, slice into smaller chunks!

After step 8, to ‘clean’ the mixing bowl and make a warm caramel drink, place 200ml milk in mixing bowl, heat 6 min/80°C/sp 1. Serve and enjoy!

    This is a very easy-to-follow recipe, which results in these extremely delicious yummies!

    If you like flapjack, biscuits, chocolate, caramel and nuts, then you'll absolutely love the combination of all of the above in these Caramelitas!

    Really lovely chocolatey-caramelly-nutty-crunchiness once cooled. Can be kept in the fridge for at least a week and frozen too... if they last that long! You will NOT regret trying these Love
