Recipe For Honeycomb Toffee

Honeycomb is a form of toffee, often sold commercially wrapped in chocolate. The reaction of the bicarbonate of soda with the sugar is what gives it the bubbly texture.

Just before we went overseas, SwiftKey did an upgrade. This is the keyboard app that I use on my iPad. It allows you to glide your finger across the keyboard to type. As soon as the upgrade was done, the ability for me to use this keyboard disappeared from my iPad. I spent our entire holiday being frustrated by having to actually type on the virtual keyboard rather than just swipe my finger across the letters. A week after we got back I did some research and discovered that Google has released a keyboard with the swipe feature. I downloaded it and when I went to activate it I saw that my SwiftKey keyboard had been de-activated in the upgrade! After testing both keyboards I have come to the conclusion that I much prefer SwiftKey.

I had a similar experience when testing recipes for the honeycomb. I think I have tried half a dozen recipes. And some of them from renowned chefs. Either the honeycomb was too sticky. Or it did not bubble. And one batch was completely flat. Out of all the batches I made two ended up being thrown out. And then finally I made the simplest recipe work! It uses coconut sugar which I am really pleased about. This is not to be confused with palm sugar. It is a reduced sucrose sugar and I find I do not have a problem digesting it at all. This will be used in future as a replacement for brown sugar where called for in recipes.

  6. Tandy, I’m so happy I visited you *today* and found this recipe! My husband loves honeycomb toffee, which we’ve bought with the chocolate coating in a chocolate shop. I had never thought of making it myself. Until today. Thank you.
