Homemade Honeycomb
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 1½c white sugar
  • ½c honey
  • ⅓c water
  • 2T golden syrup
  • 2t bicarb soda
  1. Place the sugar, honey, water, and golden syrup in a saucepan.
  2. Slowly heat the ingredients, allowing the sugar to dissolve. Brush the sides of the saucepan with a little water, using a pastry brush, to dissolve any sugar crystals on the side of the pan.
  3. Bring the mixture up to a simmer, and simmer until the sugar mixture reaches 154*c. Stir occasionally. If you don't have a sugar thermometer, you can test the temperature by dropping a little of the sugar mixture into a cup of cold water. The mixture will be a dark colour and will be crunchy like toffee - with no chewiness.
  4. Once the the mixture reaches 154*c, remove from the heat, and allow to sit until there are no bubbles in the mixture.
  5. Quickly stir in the bicarb soda. This will cause the mixture to bubble into a creamy mass.
  6. Working quickly, pour the mixture onto a tray lined with baking paper and allow to cool.
  7. Once the mixture is cool, snap it into pieces.
  8. Store in an airtight container. Do not refridgerate.
