I first made this as a teenager. It is magic the way it changes from liquid caramel to a froth which sets into a crunchie.
Step 1: Ingredients
100 g castor sugar
2tablespoons golden syrup
1.5 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
Step 2: Make the Caramel
Put the sugar and the golden syrup on a saucepan and heat gently, swirling, until the sugar melts into a caramel. Heat until golden brown.
Step 3: Add the Bicarb
Add the bicarbonate and stir, it will froth up into a foam. Pour into a tin lined with well-greased foil. Leave to cool.
Step 4: The Finishes Honeycomb
Turn out of the tin and break up into pieces.
You can dip it in chocolate to
Make home-made crunchies.
Fold into ice cream or break up and use to decorate desserts.
