To make our honeycomb toffee we used:
2 tablespoons Golden Syrup (for those outside the UK this is available from Amazon)
1 teaspoon Bicarbonate of soda
A square baking tin (lightly greased)
1. Heat the sugar & golden syrup in a saucepan over a medium heat. Bring to the boil & then simmer for 3mins until the mixture turns a golden brown. Minnie added the ingredients & then observed as the mixture grew hotter.
Minnie thought this was magic! She was so excited to have produced such an amazing immediate result by simply adding a small amount of bicarb of soda.
And now for the science bit... When the bicarbonate of soda reacts with the heat it breaks down to release carbon dioxide, & it's this gas that creates the froth & bubbles as it becomes trapped in the mixture.
3. When completely cool turn the honeycomb out onto a chopping board, & using a rolling pin/wooden spoon
bash tap to break into small pieces.
Minnie LOVED doing this!
We made our honeycomb treats to give to friends, so Minnie added a few pieces to airtight gift bags & we sealed with ribbon.
