I love honeycomb, one of my favourite chocolate bars is the Crunchie my hubby loves honeycomb, thus I wanted to find out how to make it, and to my surprise it is simple and easy - although, it did take me a couple of tries before I cracked it, but now I am whipping up honeycomb for the kids (and myself) with minimal effort.
I like to crumble it over vanilla ice cream, which is delicious and making it with the kids is fun, especially when you add in the bicarbonate soda, the confectionery instantly fizzes and froths up.
160g caster sugar
2 tablespoons of golden syrup
2 teaspoons of
Sheet of baking parchment
The process for making honeycomb happens rather quickly, so it is important that you have all your tools and ingredients ready.
First I mix the caster sugar and the golden syrup in a saucepan, until it clumps together, then I turn a low to medium heat on and let it dissolve - it's important that you do not mix the caster sugar and golden syrup whilst it is on the heat, you can give the saucepan a swirl if needed.
Once melted I whack up the heat to high until it boils, then I remove the saucepan from the heat and add the bicarbonate soda. Whisk until mixed together (don't mix it too much, as you will take the air out) then pour the mixture onto the
baking parchment - leave for approx. 30 minutes or until it is set, and then smash it up and eat.
