How to make honeycomb

Honeycomb, also referred to cinder toffee, is a light, airy sweet made from sugar, golden syrup and bicarbonate of soda. Chefs adore honeycomb for its versatility – it can add a light and crisp element of texture to a multitude of desserts, has a beautiful golden colouring and a sweet, toffee flavour.

Ingredients

  • 200g of caster sugar
  • 100g of golden syrup
  • 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

Method

1
Line a deep baking tray with parchment paper
2
Put the caster sugar and golden syrup into a large saucepan
3
Place over a medium heat and heat gently to a golden-brown caramel
4
Remove the pan from the heat, sprinkle over the bicarbonate of soda and whisk in – the mixture will froth up a lot. Take care whilst whisking as the caramel will be very hot
5
Pour the liquid honeycomb into the lined baking tray and leave to cool until it is set firm
6
Once set hard, break into pieces.

Tips

Honeycomb will last for up to 1 month when stored in an airtight container. The less you stir the honeycomb once the bicarbonate of soda has been added, the bigger the bubbles will be.
