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!

🙈 my coconut butter cake failed as I didn't grease the mini tins properly with butter, plus I was putting the toddler to bed and didn't get to turn off oven at the right time, so they stuck to the tins and were just a mess when I tried to take them out. You can use any cake that has failed you...whether it just didn't rise, or it sunk in the middle, or it's too dry etc. Instead of throwing it away, this is a great way to salvage it and make a delicious dessert while you're at it!
🙈 I used 100g of cream cheese as that is what I had left over in the fridge from something else. You could add more if you wanted to.
🙈 I used salted peanuts as that is what I had already opened in my pantry. This would work with any other nuts or even without them.
🙈 I covered my truffles with both dark and milk chocolate. I had a 200g block of Cadbury dark baking chocolate, so used that first then realised it wasn't enough to cover them all. Then I used 2 blocks of Cadbury baking milk chocolate, which was plenty. Hence why I was able to drizzle the dark chocolate truffles with milk chocolate. I would of melted some peanut butter to drizzle on all of them but my microwave broke this week and I had melted so much milk chocolate already in the Thermomix.
🙈 With the leftover melted milk chocolate, I poured it back into the bowl, added 600g of almond milk and blitzed it for 1 min on speed 8 and served a yummy milkshake to the kids!
