- 1 cup (220g) caster (superfine) sugar
- 1/4 cup (60ml) pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup (60ml) (water)
- 2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
- 1 teaspoon sea salt flakes
- 1Line an oven tray with baking paper.
- 2Stir sugar, maple syrup and the water in a medium heavy-based saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium; boil, without stirring, for 8 minutes or until syrup is a dark golden honey colour (or until it reaches hard crack stage 160°C/325°F on a sugar thermometer).
- 3Remove pan from heat; immediately stir in sifted soda – the syrup will froth. As soon as the last of the soda dissolves, carefully and quickly pour honeycomb onto tray; don't spread the mixture or it will deflate. Sprinkle with salt; cool to room temperature.
- 4Break cooled honeycomb into chunks.
Honeycomb chunks are delicious as a sweet treat in their own right, especially when dipped in or drizzled with dark chocolate. They also make a striking decoration for all sorts of celebration cakes, bring a burst of sweetness and an irresistible texture.
