    Pour in cupcake liners and bake 15-18 min (until knife come out clean)

  4. Caramel popcorn and decoration
  5. You can use any recipe you like for this, including Thermomix or other methods, but if not sure of a recipe, follow this:

    Place butter and sugar in sauce pan on high.  DO NOT WALK AWAY.  KEEP STIRRING UNTIL SUGAR DISSOLVE AND START TO CHANGE COLOUR.  Take of heat and stir the reserved popcorn in.  Make sure all is covered and put popcorn on thermomat, glass plate or cool surface to cool down. 

    Once cooled put about a cup full in the Thermomix.  Mill 5 sec on speed 8.  Set aside.

Gluten Free option is to use normal GF flour or Arrowroot flour in stead of normal flour.  Remember to use GF baking powder as well.

The Popcorn flour is VERY static. Put your spatula in a bit of water or milk when trying to empty the TM Bowl. That should help with he flour sticking to the sides tmrc_emoticons.-)
