Honey Comb is also known as Hokey Pokey and now the headline is way wittier, right? This recipe is for people who enjoy conducting science experiments and cooking at the same time. The way three simple ingredients create a delicious and intricate dessert is mesmerizing. The key to this recipe is organization. Have all the ingredients measured, and have all your equipment out and ready. This recipe moves quickly, you have to be one step ahead.

The what: 
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup golden syrup (or honey)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
The How:

Line a baking sheet with parchment-paper and set aside.

Measure out all the ingredients and have a whisk and spatula ready.

Place the sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan on medium heat. Fight the urge to stir the mixture. Once the syrup heats up a little, it will liquify enough for you to swirl-mix everything together.

Once the mixture bubbles for a few minutes and turns one shade darker, turn the heat off. I went a few shades darker and the inside had a slight burnt taste. I would go one shade lighter next time.

Quickly grab your whisk with one hand and the baking soda with the other. Drop in the baking soda and whisk. The mixture will come alive and triple in size.

Once the baking soda is all whisked in, dump the mixture onto the parchment-paper lined baking sheet. Use the spatula to make sure you get every drop out of the pot.

DO NOT TOUCH! I repeat, do not touch the mixture it will burn you hard.

Allow the honey comb to cool for at least 15 minutes before you break it up into bitesize pieces.

Dip in melted chocolate, add to ice cream, or just eat as-is.
