Homemade honeycomb

    25 min

    Make your own honeycomb with this foolproof, easy recipe. You'll need a sugar thermometer for best results, but without one you can tell it is done by dropping a bit of the hot syrup in cold water and it will form hard threads that break when bent.

    • 350g golden syrup
    • 1 tablespoon vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon bicarbonate of soda

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Butter a 22x33cm tin.
    2. Combine sugar, syrup and vinegar in large saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Continue to cook until the mixture reaches hard crack stage on a sugar thermometer, 143 degrees C.
    3. Remove from heat, stir in the bicarb quickly (the mixture will become frothy). Immediately pour into the buttered tin.
    4. Allow the honeycomb to cool, then break into pieces.

    Great! So much nicer than shop bought. Couldn't believe how simple it is.  -  11 Dec 2013


    When it was cool, I dunked it in melted dark chocolate, YUMMY home made crunchies  -  24 Jan 2016


    This didn't work at all- used a sugar thermometer and the result was impossible to get out of the pan and far too chewy. All in the bin!  -  05 Apr 2016
