Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes


  • 150 g castor sugar
  • 50 g golden syrup
  • 1 tsp baking soda/bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tbsp water


  • Line a flat tray with parchment paper.
  • Bring the sugar, water and golden syrup to the boil for about 5 minutes. It will turn a deep, dark golden colour. If using a sugar thermometer it should reach a temperature of 150. Please be careful at this stage as hot sugar gives a bad burn.
  • When it has reached 150 sprinkle in the baking soda and whisk. It will explode and develop into big bubbles.
  • Quickly pour out onto the lined tray and allow to set and cool for about 30 minutes.
  • Crack into delicious crunchy shards and chunks.
  • Be sure to get into an airtight container ASAP.
  • Honeycomb is hygroscopic and will go soft and sticky if left out in the air.
  • Optional, dip in melted milk or white chocolate.
