Got that (almost) Friday feeling? Remember that Crunchie ad? If you like Crunchie bars, have I got a treat for you…
For our dessert at our supper we served a chocolate mouse with salted caramel (the bottom layer) topped with honeycomb… served in (not so little) jars.
See that thick layer of caramel at the bottom…
And so I thought I would share the honeycomb recipe, as it is oh so very easy! This will make a small amount, you can multiple if you like.
5 tbsp granulated sugar
2 tbsp golden syrup
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1. To make the honeycomb, heat the sugar and syrup gently in a heavy saucepan until the sugar melts, then boil the mixture until it turns a deep, golden caramel.
2. Whisk in the bicarbonate of soda (this will make it foam up) then quickly pour it onto an oiled baking sheet, set on a chopping board, and cool.
Try it, maybe make a batch for a little mothers day gift or for the next time you are going to a friends for dinner.
