Homemade honeycomb
  • Makes: About 400g

  • Cooking time:

    cooling time
  • Skill level: Easy peasy

Enjoy the taste of childhood with this delicious traditional homemade sweet. Eat it on its own or add it to ice cream.

Ingredients

  • 140g liquid glucose
  • 400g sugar
  • 75g clear honey
  • 2tbsp baking soda
  • 5tbsp water

Liquid glucose is widely available in most large supermarkets.

Method

  1. Firstly, line a baking tray (a shallow one if you have it) with parchment paper.
  2. In a large saucepan (heavy-based ones are best), put the liquid glucose, honey, sugar and water. Heat the mixture gently and stir from time to time until you see the sugar dissolving.
  3. Turn up the heat and let the mixture cook until you see it transform into a light golden colour.
  4. When it changes colour, blend in the baking soda - you'll see the mixture turn into a foaming mass and at this point, pour it into the parchment paper-lined baking tray.
  5. Let the mixture cool for about an hour. When it has cooled, break up the honeycomb using the end of a rolling pin. You can store the honeycomb in an airtight jar until you need it.

Cook's tip: Liquid glucose is widely available in most large supermarkets.
