This post is part of a guest post series this week. Today is from the lovely Kimberly Jessica; to see her blog, click here.
I’m Kimberley from http://www.kimberleyjessica.co.uk and I am a UK lifestyle, student and beauty blogger just trying to get through life! I’d like to thank Lydia for letting me share one of my favourite recipes with you all and I hope you enjoy it too!
So let’s get too it!
Some people may say that honeycomb is the most easiest thing to make; however, everyone else claims that it is quite difficult and challenging to make as it has a risk of burning.
This was definitely worth the try, and it came out looking, smelling and tasting amazing!
I myself have never been fond of the “crunchie” bars which are sold in shops, I find that the honeycomb is far to solid and it definitely hurts my teeth to bite into.
This honeycomb only uses four ingredients and it is definitely not like the honeycomb sold in shops; it’s not ridiculously hard that you can’t put your teeth through it, it has a lot more bubbles in it (definitely more than what I expected it should have) and it is one of the most amazing things I have ever made from scratch.
Although it was fun making this beautiful piece of art; the most exciting part was hitting it with a rolling pin to break it into pieces. This is definitely the best part that a child would enjoy.
I highly recommend trying this out and making your own honeycomb right in your kitchen. It’s quick, fun and easy; and if you keep an eye on your saucepan, there is no chance of it burning.
You will need;
160 g caster sugar
80 g golden syrup
2 tsp bicarbonate soda
To begin with, you need to line a round cake tin with baking parchment, or you can use a silicone cake tin without the baking parchment.
Secondly, put the butter, sugar and syrup in a deep pan and heat gently until melted. turn up the heat and boil quickly- do not stir and continue until golden brown colour (the colour of maple syrup); do not let it burn.
Thirdly, take the saucepan off the heat and pour in the bicarbonate of soda, then stir quickly for a few seconds as it foams and fizzes. (you need to do this quickly)
Last but not least, pour carefully into the lined tray and leave to set and cool at room temperature.
