Nearly every person loves honeycomb, which makes it the perfect dessert or snack to serve to your loved ones.

Things You’ll Need
Heavy based pan w/ high sides
⅓ cup golden syrup
⅓ cup water
1 ½ cups white sugar
⅓ cup honey
2 teaspoons soda bicarbonate
Lined baking dish
Take out your heavy based pan and mix the golden syrup, water, sugar and honey. Use a wooden spoon to stir all your ingredients together.
Place the pan over low heat to allow the sugar to dissolve. Continue to stir the mixture with your wooden spoon to avoid the mixture from sticking at the bottom of the pan.
Turn the heat of the stove up and dip a thermometer into the mixture. Wait for it to reach 132 degrees Celsius while you continue to stir it while being heated.
Keep the mixture at the same temperature for at least 20 minutes, adjusting the heat in case it gets too warm or cold.
Remove the pan and mixture from the heat and set it aside to cool until all the bubbles have disappeared.
Pour the soda bicarbonate into the mixture and beat it with your wooden spoon. Transfer the mixture into a lined baking dish and allow it to cool for at least 2 hours.
Place the hardened candy into a non-fluffy cloth and break the candy apart using a rolling pin.
