No Christmas without some bling
This time in the shape of crunchy sweetness - also known as Honeycombe, cinder toffee...
- 335g sugar
- 125ml honey
- 125ml golden sirup
- 25g butter
- 80ml water
- 2 teaspoons bicarb
- Grease some baking paper and place on a baking tray
- Mix all the ingredients together except the bicarb in a big pan and bring to a boil. It needs to boil while stirring for about 10 min. To see if it is ready drop a few drops of the mixture into a glass of cold water. If it just dissolves it needs to boil longer, if it turns into a hard/firm ball then it is ready for the next step.
- Now for quick action. Quickly stir in the bicarb and pour immediately onto your pre-greased sheet. This is going to make it expand very rapidly! It turns it into an erupting volcano.
- When it has cooled down, break into pieces. For some extra luxury dip into melted chocolate. Store in an air-tight box.
