'Crunchie Rocks' !

Ever fancied making your own Crunchie at home?
Here's how!
Honeycomb is surprisingly simple and cheap to make! It uses regular household ingredients and tastes fabulous!
4 tablespoons Golden Syrup
200g Caster Sugar
3 teaspoons Bicarbonate of Soda
Line a baking tray or cake tin
In a large saucepan: heat the golden syrup and sugar together. 
Bring to the boil, and then simmer on a low heat for 5-10 mins.

To test when if your mix is ready, drop a small amount of the heated mix into a glass of water. If the mixture turns solid then it is ready! 

Remove the pan from the heat and add your bicarb.
Mix together quickly as your mixture will foam up instantly!
Pour your mixture immediately over a lined baking tray or into a lined cake tin.
Leave to set!
This is my honeycomb ready to go into the fridge!
Once the honeycomb is set, take it out of the fridge and break it into chunks!
I put my honeycomb into a freezer bag then hit it with a rolling pin to create lots of broken pieces in a range of sizes.
Ideally, if you use a baking tray, you can use a knife dipped in boiling water to slice through the honeycomb, creating bars.
Then drizzle over melted chocolate, or dip the bar fully into melted chocolate, and wa-la!
Note: This honeycomb is rather chewy: some of you may like that, some may not. Add a tablespoon of Vinegar to your sugar and syrup mix whilst its on the hob! This should make it 'crunchier'!
