Honeycomb

Honeycomb, in my mind has always been one of those things that sounds just terrifying. Most of the stories I’ve heard from people who have made it, have been complete and utter disasters. Which is why even as I was making this I was preparing myself for an epic fail but now that I have made it, I haven’t a clue what all the fuss was about! Now I have to admit, it’s not a total walk in the park to make, in the sense that once you add the bicarbonate of soda, everything happens very quickly. But it was nothing as drastic as I had imagined. I don’t know weather I was lucky or this is just an absolutely fantastic recipe but all I do know is that it produced easy, melt in the mouth honeycomb that is better then any crunchie bar! So if you too were scared off by the gruesome tales of honeycomb, give this a go and I hope you are as successful as me. Good luck!
