Honeycomb bites

These honeycomb bites are a real treat, not only do they taste delicious but they are fun to make with the kids, as it's almost like watching a science experiment, seeing how the honeycomb reacts. (Please be aware the mixture is extremely HOT so adults must make this recipe whilst children watch).


Ingredients

325g caster sugar
50g honey
60g water
125g Sosa Liquid Glucose
15g bicarbonate of soda
Tempered chocolate of your choice. We've used Belcolade milk chocolate

Method

In a saucepan bring to the boil the sugar, honey, water and glucose and bring up to 155c.

Once mixture has reached 155c add in bicarbonate of soda and give it a quick whisk to ensure it is all incorporated.

Pour the mixture into a lined deep dish and leave to cool for one hour.

Once the mixture is completely cool smash up the honeycomb into chunky pieces.

Dip your honeycomb chunks into your tempered chocolate with a fork ensuring that the whole surface area is covered with chocolate, tap off any excess chocolate on the side of the bowl and place on a piece of greaseproof paper or acetate to set.

Leave the chocolate covered bites to one side in a cool place to let them set.

Tip

Don't want the hassle of making your own honeycomb? We sell Cinder Toffee Bites that you can coat in chocolate to make the bites.
