I have attempted to make this about a year before on a general whim -it gets to bonfire time of year and I crave cinder toffee and sparklers!- and whilst it semi-worked it wasn’t quite right. The recipe I previously used had butter in it which is why I think it went slightly too buttery and wet. My attempt this year proved far more fruitful.
I followed the wonderful Nigella Lawsons’ recipe for Hokey Pokey (here) which turned out deliciously well:
Bubbly honeycomb mix!
Once I had followed the recipe, I decided to coat mine in a mix of dark and white chocolate. After all, it works very well on Cadburys Crunchies! I started by melting dark chocolate in a bowl over another bigger bowl filled with hot water from the kettle. Once it had melted I quickly scooped it into an icing bag (I use disposable ones to save on the washing up!), snipped the end off the bag and squeezed it from a height over the honeycomb.
I then used a sharp kitchen knife to chop the honeycomb into squares and then popped it into the jars with a pretty ribbon tied around the neck for decoration! Cute!
