HEY, HONEYCOMB HERE!

Grace yourself with Hungry Hijabi's honeycomb... sweet to the soul and healing to the bones...

Yields15 Servings
 200 g Caster Sugar
 4 tbsp Golden Syrup
 1.50 tsp Bicarbonate Soda
 250 g Cadbury's Chocolate
1

Prepare a baking tray with a sheet of greaseproof paper and set aside.

2

In a non stick pot begin to gently heat the syrup.

3

Add the caster sugar and wait until it gently begins to dissolve

4

Dont stir. You need to allow the mixture to become transparent.

5

Wait for a lovely caramel colour. Do nut burn or else it will become bitter.

6

This is the most exciting part of the recipe. VERY QUICKLY, turn off the heat and add the bicarbonate of soda and keep continuously mixing until it has all thoroughly mixed in. Once the caramel is ready, pour it all onto the baking tray. The mixture will expand rapidly and foam up high.

7

Meanwhile, if you are adding chocolate, melt in a double broiler on very low heat slowly and gently. Once melted set aside.

8

Allow the honeycomb to cool for an hour and break into shards (or chosen shape).

9

You can dip each shard into the chocolate or alternatively drizzle the chocolate on the shards.

10

Chill until the chocolate has set in the refrigerator and serve. Enjoy every morsel of your home made honeycomb and if you have used chocolate enjoy your home made crunchy bar!

When i was younger my Baba would come back home every night and bring us our favourite chocolates and sweets. There are four of us so we all had our individual ones. At the time my sister always got Milky bar because thats just what you buy for the little ones. My eldest brother always had starbursts and i had a lion bar. My second brother ALWAYS got crunchy! He was obsessed with crunchy!

Married to Hungry Husband now i have found someone else now who is absolutely crazy for Crunchy! After trying a home made honeycomb recipe at school years ago i realised back then how easy honeycomb was to make and since then i have never stopped making them! My children today also enjoy eating those crunchy delights.

Its a great recipe to make with the kids and it teaches them a little science too! Get them writing about it and they will really appreciate how awesome this experiment/ recipe is. Those bubbles and that foam which tastes exactly like honey! Its simple really: when the bicarbonate soda hits the hot sugar syrup it releases carbon dioxide gas. It is when the mixture cools down the bubbles and foam occur and become trapped which leaves you with a delicious shard of honeycomb. How amazing is that?

Try it for yourself and be at awe!
And if you really love crunchy bar by Cadbury's then cover it in chocolate and really treat yourself to a home made crunchy bar... its really that simple...!
