Honey Joys

Honey Joys

It was my daughter’s 5th birthday yesterday, so I’ve been busy making lots of party food.  My kids love honey joys, but I think my Dad loves them even more!  As I was making them yesterday, I converted the 1/3 cup & tablespoon measurements from my recipe into grams, so next time I can just weigh the ingredients into my Thermomix bowl.  It’s great to have the butter mixture melting at a controlled temperature & not have to keep stirring it.  While it’s melting, you can get all the patty pans ready for the next step.

90g butter
80g sugar
20g honey
150g cornflakes

1) Pre heat oven to 150 degrees & line muffin tray with patty pan cases.
2) Place butter, sugar & honey in TM bowl, cook 5 minutes/100 degrees/speed 2.
3) While the butter mixture is cooking, place a mixing bowl on top of the TM lid, zero the scales & weigh cornflakes into bowl.
4) Pour butter mixture over the cornflakes & mix well.
5) Working quickly, spoon mixture into patty cases. Bake for 10 minutes.


 If you prefer, you can add the cornflakes to the TM bowl in steps 3 & 4.  Mix the cornflakes for 15 seconds/reverse/speed 2 or until the cornflakes are all coated.

 I prefer to mix the cornflakes & butter mixture in a mixing bowl, as you need to use a tablespoon to spoon the mixture into the patty cases & I’d rather not use a tablespoon in my TM bowl, so I don’t scratch it.  If you’d rather do everything in the Thermomix & avoid washing another mixing bowl, just take care when spooning out the last of the mixture & be careful not to scratch the base of your TM bowl.
