Home made crunchie honeycomb

Today we made crunchie!

 In a pan, heat 4 tablespoons of golden syrup with 200g of sugar. We heated it very slowly to avoid burning. Bring to the boil and then simmer until the sugar has dissolved.

 To test if the honeycomb is ready, dip a small amount in cold water, 
if it sets solid, it's ready.

 
 The fun bit - add 3 teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda
The mixture fizzes and this is how the honeycomb gets it's bubbles.
This gave us an opportunity to recap acids and alkalis.
Place the mixture in a tin lined with greaseproof paper.

Leave to set.

Break into pieces.

 We decorated the honeycomb with dark chocolate

Delicious!
