Friday Recipe | Honeycomb

(originally posted on my food blog, Licking the Whisk)

I had a few problems with this one, to be honest; it took a few goes with a few different recipes to get it right!


5 tablespoons caster sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
2 teaspoons water
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Melt sugar and syrup in a pan over a low heat. When melted, add the water and bring to a boil and keep it boiling for about 5 minutes until it turns to a light golden brown colour.

Remove from heat <– this is very important!!

Add bicarb to the pan and stir for about 10 seconds.

Pour onto a baking sheet and wait for it to cool and set.

Smash it up and enjoy!

This would be lovely with chocolate on it, like Cadbury’s Crunchie!!

As I said, it took a while to get this right; see below for my epic fail (although Mr B kindly said it just tasted like a brandy snap…!!)
