Chocolate Dipped Honeycomb. Crunchy, light, airy and delicious. A sweet lovers dream Christmas gift or dessert. Only 4 ingredients and 5 minutes cooking time! Great for dinner parties as a sharing platter or movie night.
What You'll Need
  • Vegetable Oil for greasing your dish
  • 190g Caster Sugar
  • 7 tbsp (140g) Golden Syrup
  • 2 ½ tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 200g Milk Chocolate
How to Make It
  1. Lightly grease a pie or flan dish with a little vegetable oil. Use a dish with a loose base so you can easily remove the set honeycomb. Once greased, line the bottom of the dish with a circle of baking paper and grease with a little more oil. It is very important that you do this step before you start to make the honeycomb as there won’t be time later.
  2. Measure out the bicarbonate of soda before you start.
  3. Put the caster sugar and golden syrup in a pan over a medium heat and stir until the sugar has dissolved and changes to a golden caramel colour.
  4. When the caramel is bubbling and shiny turn off the heat and add the bicarbonate of soda, stir quickly until it is completely mixed and foaming. Tip the honeycomb into the greased dish – DO NOT TOUCH IT. It will be burning hot. Leave to cool for about 30 minutes.
  5. Gently remove the honeycomb from the dish and peel off the baking paper. Break into smaller pieces.
  6. Melt the chocolate in the microwave on a low power setting. Be careful not to burn it. Dip each piece of honeycomb in the melted chocolate and leave to set on a cooling rack. When the chocolate is hard, it is ready to eat. Enjoy!
