Perfect for gifting, this sweet and crunchy honeycomb will look great when presented in a cellophane treat bag and tied with a ribbon.

Ingredients and Method


  • 80g Butter
  • 160g Caster sugar
  • 80g Golden syrup
  • 2 tsp Bicarbonate of soda


  1. Grease a square baking tin with oil.
  2. Gently heat the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a pan until the sugar has dissolved.
  3. Turn up the heat and boil rapidly, without stirring If the mixture goes darker at one side of the mix, then gently swirl the pan to mix it all together.
  4. Keep boiling until the mixture goes a golden-brown colour – this will take about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the bicarbonate of soda and stir it for a few seconds, which will make the mixture expand and fizz.
  6. Tip the honeycomb into the oiled baking tin and leave until cold and set.
  7. To serve, cut the honeycomb into pieces.
