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


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


  • Firstly, line a baking tray (a shallow one if you have it) with parchment paper.

  • 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.

  • Turn up the heat and let the mixture cook until you see it transform into a light golden colour.

  • 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.

  • 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.
