    Hi there! I’m gonna try this recipe with my Thermomix and would like to confirm that step 5 really require 100 degrees? Also what can I replace chocolate melts with if I can’t find them. Is chocolate user for baking the same? Thanks 🙂

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi there, yes that’s correct. If you can’t find chocolate melts you can use any baking chocolate. 🙂
