Homemade gifts: Hokey pokey honeycomb!

Lots of people love honeycomb…our family used to buy it every time we went to Wells-next-the-sea in Norfolk when I was little. Seaside tradition!

My mom especially loves it as she loves a  Crunchie chocolate bar too!
It’s so easy to make and great as a quick food based gift to take to a friends or family special occasion.
For a reasonable sized slab, I reduced the amounts in a Nigella Lawson method and used:
What you will need:
50g caster sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
What you have to do:
Mix the sugar and syrup in a saucepan OFF THE HEAT
When combined, heat on and it will bubble and should turn a deeper golden brown colour
At this point, take off the heat and quickly stir in the bicarb. It will fizz up like a big sponge, immediately turn out onto a greased surface and leave to cool.
There you go!
