How To Make Chocolate Dipped Honeycomb

How To Make Chocolate Dipped Honeycomb. Happy Saturday. Do you have any fun plans for today because I do 🙂

We are off to run Parkrun this morning. As long as it is not too cold, windy or raining. So a really good chance we don’t end up going, ha! Watch this space.

So as we are talking about the wind today, there was a big old tree blown over in the woods yesterday, where I walk Mollie every morning. Not good.

It had fallen onto another tree and was just balancing on a really thin branch about to fall at any time.

I managed to walk around it but a woman just casually walked underneath it.

Very brave indeed! Because no chance I was risking that! 🙁 Chocolate-Dipped Honeycomb anyone?


How To Make Chocolate Dipped Honeycomb:

So do you like honeycomb treats with chocolate? Because if you do, you will love today’s post. Yum, how tasty!

Preparation time: 10 minutes plus setting

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Total time: 20 minutes plus setting

Makes: about 350g

Ingredients:

100g caster sugar

4 tbsp golden syrup

1 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

200g dark chocolate (70-75% cocoa solids)

How To Make Chocolate Dipped Honeycomb:

1. Firstly, line a baking tray with baking parchment.

Mix the sugar and golden syrup to a paste in a large, deep, heavy-based saucepan and slowly melt over a low-medium heat until it reaches 140C or the soft-crack stage on a sugar thermometer.

2. Take the sugar off the heat and quickly beat in the bicarbonate of soda with a wooden spoon. Take care as the mixture will froth up rapidly to make honeycomb.

Quickly pour the honeycomb onto the lined baking tray and allow to set at room temperature. Once set, remove the baking parchment and smash the honeycomb into shards.

3. Melt the chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water, making sure the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl.

Once melted, stir the chocolate and dip the smashed-up honeycomb shards in it. Lastly, leave to set on baking parchment.
