Servings 30 Pieces


  • 200 g caster sugar
  • 75 g golden syrup
  • 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 200 g milk chocolate
  • 200 g dark chocolate


  • Firstly, line an 8x10inch baking tin (with high sides) with baking paper, and grease lightly with butter. Then set aside on a cooling rack.
  • Combine the sugar and golden syrup in a large pan and place over a medium-high heat. Cook, stirring every now and then, until the sugar has melted and its turned a golden-amber colour. Then take off the heat and quickly sprinkle the bicarbonate of soda in, and stir quickly to combine. It will foam up at this point.
  • Quickly pour into the prepared tin while still foaming and leave to set.
  • Break up the honeycomb into pieces. Then melt both the milk chocolate and dark chocolate in separate bowls (either using a bain-marie or in the microwave). Dip the honeycomb pieces into the chocolates, using a fork to help turn and tap any excess chocolate off the pieces. Then place onto baking paper to set. Then place in air-tight containers or bags.


Will keep up to 1 month in air-tight containers or bags.
