EDIBLE GIFT: Chocolate Coated Honeycomb

Today I've got another edible gift recipe for you, a sweet treat. I don't know how I made it to 23 years old and had never made honeycomb! It's the easiest thing to make, with the fewest ingredients - ideal for Christmas presents on a budget! I bought a little vintage inspired jar from The Range for £1 to give this honeycomb in, makes it seem a lot more expensive.   
What you'll need:
100g caster sugar
4 tablespoons golden syrup
1 ½ teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
100g Milk Chocolate

What to do:
1) Put the sugar and syrup into a saucepan and stir together to mix.

2) Put the saucepan on a medium heat to allow the sugar to dissolve. At this point don't stir the sugar syrup mixture at all, as you risk it crystallising. You can swirl the pan to move it around.
3) Once the sugar mixture is a deep caramel colour then remove it from the heat.
4) Whisk in the bicarbonate of soda and watch the syrup foam up into a mass of gold molten sugar.
5) Pour this immediately into a baking tray that has been greased well.
6) Leave until set and then bash it with a rolling pin, or other heavy object.

7) Melt the chocolate in the microwave on short 10 seconds intervals. Dip in shards of the honeycomb, place on a piece of greaseproof  paper to set.

Have you ever had a go at making honeycomb?

  6. These look delicious! I always have good intentions of making bits and bobs like this, but it never happens.

    These do look simple and delicious though.
