This is a conversion of the Caramel Popcorn Mud Cakes recipe featured on the cover of Taste Magazine, September 2013.
I tried melting the jersey caramels and cream in the Thermomix but not enough heat was generated to do this so hence as per the magazine recipe the small saucepan was required. You can also make the choc frosting in the Thermomix however my goal was to convert the simple recipe as per Taste Magazine. We loved it and I appreciated the simple steps to achieve the final result. Please bake, rate and enjoy! They make you look like a super chef (even if you are not).
