You know what I love about the Thermomix? Well actually there's about a zillion things I love... but one of the major ones is just how quick and easy it is to convert all of my old favourite recipes. And long gone are the days of having beaters, bowls, whisks, measuring cups and every other possible kitchen appliance being used every time I wanted to bake. Now it's just me and my thermie. Happy times!
Anyway, these Thermomix Caramel Cookies are based on a four ingredient recipe that I've been using forever. In fact, it's one of those recipes that you just know off the top of your head! They're the biscuits I make when I'm in a rush, because I always have the ingredients on hand (well almost always!).
These really are the best little caramel cookies on their own... or you can add in some chocolate chips, nuts or whatever you like!

These were so good quick and easy !
I added choc chip. Next time I will wait longer before adding as they melted a bit but it did give the cookie a pretty effect.
Definitely will do them again.
These are so addictive! Delicious
Delicious and so so simple!

Thanks so much Chelsea x
Really good with chocolate chips. I mixed in white and milk chocolate chips.
some of the easiest biscuits to make ever!! And they're super yummy...quick + delicious = dangerous combo hehe 😀
Lucy can I use coconut sugar instead of brown sugar?
Hi Shirley, We haven't tried these with coconut sugar, the brown sugar combined with the golden syrup is what helps give it the caramel flavour. I don't see why you couldn't use coconut sugar, but the flavour/texture may just be a little different.
Yumo! I made these after putting my boys to bed tonight. It was a race with my husband-who would finish first...him watching his TV show, or me, making these biscuits in my new Thermo! I won! And they are a huge hit! I also added white choc chips, but should have let the mix cool a little longer as they melted quite a bit as I was rolling into balls! Thanks!
Hahaha I love that!!! Yum!
Can I substitute maple syrup for the golden syrup?
You sure can.
These are great, infact they are amazing.
I had to change the recipe a little because I have to cook GF for my family, but they were amazing, I have NEVER been able to cook cookies that the others like.
For GF I just used a GF flour, I added 10g extra so it wasn't so runny... was just AMAZING!!!!!
Thank you so much!
