Cuisine: American
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 1⅓ cups sugar
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • dark chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Add the sugar, corn syrup and water to a 5 or 6 quart saucepan. It's important that you use a big pan for this candy recipe.
  2. Insert your candy thermometer into the pan and heat the sugar over medium heat until the temperature reaches 300 degrees Fahrenheit. You'll notice that the sugar mixture has started to turn amber in color.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and take the thermometer out of the pan.
  4. Whisk in the baking soda and whisk briskly. You'll see the mixture bubble/foam up A LOT! (That's why you need a big pan.)
  5. Pour out onto a parchment paper or Silpat lined baking sheet.
  6. Let mixture cool. (about an hour)
  7. Break honeycomb candy up with the back end of a knife.
  8. Fill a small saucepan with an inch of water and place a glass bowl on top of the pan.
  9. Add chocolate chips to bowl and turn heat to medium.
  10. Use a spatula to stir the chocolate as it melts.
  11. Once chocolate has melted, dip honeycomb pieces into chocolate and lay out on a parchment paper or Silpat lined baking sheet.
  12. Let chocolate harden.
  13. Serve.
Notes
Make sure you have the whisk and baking soda ready for when you pull the sugar mixture off the heat. Also make sure that you've prepared your baking sheet. You could also line an 8"x8" baking pan with parchment paper instead of the baking sheet. Just make sure you've got all 4 sides covered with paper. You don't need to spread the hot mixture out. It will spread on its own.
