Home-made Honeycomb

I know I always say easiest recipe ever, but seriously seriously this is.

Remember yesterday I told you about cinder toffee?
Well cinder toffee/honeycomb its totally the same thing.

Personally I'm not a huge fan of this sweet treat, unless its covered in chocolate! My Mum loves it though, so I made her some; yes it does make the perfect gift.

Grab these:
100g caster sugar
2tbsp golden syrup
1.5tsp bicarbonate of soda
A hammer (trust me)

Make sure your kitchen side is clean too.

How to:
In a saucepan mix the caster sugar and golden syrup.

Place over a medium heat until the sugar melts and the mixture starts to turn a golden brown, like caramel. Be careful here. 1 second too long and the whole thing will taste burnt.

Take the pan off the heat and add the bicarbonate of soda. The mixture will lighten in colour and bubbles will be formed. Wooooo kitchen chemistry going on!
Pour out straight away onto your kitchen side and leave for 15 minutes.

Grab your hammer and smash the honeycomb into eatable pieces.

Top tip: If you can't get the remaining sugar mixture off the pan when washing it. Just heat for a few seconds and it will come right off.

What is your favourite sweet treat to give away?
