Ingredients

Honeycomb

1 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup corn syrup

2 tablespoons honey

1/2 cup water

2 teaspoons baking soda

Directions

Honeycomb

1Prep a bowl that has about 2 inches cold water and place inside sink. Also, have your baking soda and spatula near the sink too. These are your prepped items so that when your honeycomb is hot and ready to go, so are you!

2In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, add sugar and give it a shake so it lays flat in the pan. Add corn syrup, honey, and water, so all of the sugar has been moistened, but do not stir. Turn the heat to medium high, and watch closely as the sugar starts to dissolve and the ingredients start to meld together.

3Cook the mixture to 300ºF, which should take about 5–10 minutes depending on the strength of your stove, then remove the pan from the heat and immediately go to your sink. Place the hot saucepan into the bowl of the water. Then, drop in the baking soda into the 300ºF candy and stir with a spatula for about 5 seconds, and once it has stopped foaming up, immediately pour the mixture onto the parchment paper or a presprayed pan. Let cool for 1 hour until hardened, then whack the honeycomb with a knife to break into pieces.

4Note: Honeycomb will keep for 3–4 days at room temperature in an airtight container.
