How to Make Honeycomb - quick and easy honeycomb recipe! Whether you decide to coat these little wonders with chocolate or just have them plain, honeycomb is just super yummy.
Ingredients
  • 75ml Water
  • 320ml Caster sugar
  • 120ml Corn syrup, Lyle's Golden Syrup, or glucose syrup
  • ⅛ tsp Cream of tartar
  • 5ml White vinegar
  • 7.5ml Bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
  • Chocolate to coat (optional)
Instructions
  1. Place the corn syrup or Lyles golden syrup or glucose syrup, caster sugar, cream of tartar, white wine vinegar and water in a deep pot.
  2. Half fill a large pan with water at room temperature.
  3. Place the pot over medium high heat and stir the mixture until the sugar has dissolved and everything is well combined.
  4. Bring the mixture up to 300f or 154c. To judge this you will need to use a candy thermometer or an infrared thermometer.
  5. While the mixture heats up, line an 8 x 8 inch baking pan with baking parchment.
  6. As the mixture comes to the correct temperature, remove the pot from the heat and carefully lower it into the pan of water.
  7. Add the bicarbonate of soda and whisk this into the mixture.
  8. The mixture will froth up like a volcano.... this is why you need a deep pot.
  9. The cooling bath cools the mixture just enough to ensure a nice fine texture of bubble in the honeycomb.
  10. Remove the pot from the cooling bath and pour the honeycomb into the lined baking pan. Quickly level off the surface and put this aside to set.
  11. Once the mixture has set solid, turn it out from the pan.
  12. Use your meat mallet and a butter knife as a chisel to fracture the honeycomb into bite sized pieces.
  13. And there it is.... a beautifully finely texture honeycomb to add a little sweetness to the beginning of your new year.
