Honeycomb – a delicious sweet treat and a recipe to share

A super sweet treat, honeycomb is such a fun activity to bake with children. Watching the mixture bubble up is like watching a seriously exciting science lesson! Once made, broken up into chunky shards it is devoured by the whole family. Even better crushed onto vanilla ice cream makes for a fun summery dessert.

Ingredients :

  • 220g caster sugar
  • 5 tbsp golden syrup
  • 2 tsp baking soda


  • Line a rectangular baking tray (20cm x 27cm) with parchment paper.
  • Measure out the caster sugar and baking soda into small separate bowls as you need to work quickly once you’re cooking.
  • Pour the caster sugar into a large saucepan and add the golden syrup to it. On a low heat melt to until the sugar has dissolved. Once the mixture is of a golden colour turn off the heat.
  • Add the baking soda and carefully stir. Watch the magic happen as the mixture foams up. (An adult musy supervise this process.)
  • Once the soda is mixed through, pour it into the baking tray. Do not touch the mixture as it’s very hot!
  • Leave to set for about an hour until it is set.
  • Once set, break the honeycomb into small pieces with a wooden spoon and store in an airtight container.

It is equally delicious dipped into melted dark chocolate and left to set. Yum!!
