for when the kids want a caramel milkshake for afternoon tea and you have no caramel topping or cream...
approximate amounts only ;) to make 3-4 milkshakes
around 4-5 tabs brown sugar
around 1-1 1/2 tabs butter
squeeze (around 1 tspn) golden syrup
place in thermomix and cook for 5 mins 90' speed 2
add a splash of milk and cook a further 4 mins 90' speed 2
it should look smooth and creamy and smell like caramel (funnily enough lol)
then put in your milk and icecream if desired. i was making 4 cups so i put in 3 cups of milk (not cup measures but the actually cup size we were using IYKWIM). my kids like a dollop of icecream in the cup not mixed into the shake, so i just whizzed up the milk and caramel for 2 minutes speed 8. pour over the icecream and serve.
PS: it occurred to me after how much sugar there is in this! it would be interesting to see how it compares to commercial stuff.... still, my kids don't get that much sugar i don't think...
