Step 1

Put the Sugar, Honey or golden syrup, and water into a large saucepan and stir over a gentle heat until all the sugar has dissolved (until there are no granules scratching the bottom of the pan).

Step 2

Bring the mixture to the boil for about 5 minutes until it is at a temperature of approx 135°C / 275°F on a candy thermometer (take care not to burn the mixture)

Step 3

Remove from heat & quickly add the bicarbonate of soda to the mixture (at this point the mixture will start to froth).

Step 4

Stir in the Bicarbonate of soda quickly and pour the mixture into a pre-greased baking tray, (mine measures about 30cm x 20cm (12" x 8") and is about 2.5cm (1") deep).

Step 5

When the mixture starts to cool and harden a little, mark out lines so you can crack the crunchie when its cool.

Step 6

When the homemade crunchie is completely cool break it into chunks using the marks you made earlier as a guide.

Step 7

Melt a bar of the chocolate of your choice, my favorite is Cadbury's dairy milk so that's what I am using. Break the chocolate into chunks and put them into a glass bowl. Place the glass bowl over a larger bowl or saucepan with hot water in, the heat from the water should melt your chocolate.

Step 8

When you have melted the chocolate, dip each of your homemade crunchie chunks into the chocolate and cover entirely.

Step 9

Place the covered bars on a sheet of grease-proof paper and let them cool in the fridge.

    I did as it said and it wouldn't set,so second time I only used two and a half tablespoon's of golden syrup and two heaped'wish teaspoon's full of backing soda,
    It worked a treat then drizzled melted chocolate over it all.

    I think the tricky part is to ensure that the sugar mixture doesn't burn. I left it maybe a minute or so longer as I was trying to make sure the sugar had dissolved... looked fine, didn't smell burnt at all... but now that it has hardened, it tastes like burnt marshmallow!

    I've tried this twice now, last night and this morning, and neither time worked!! I'm so sad. Each time it didn't foam up but instead just turned into a lump of sugary goop. AHHHHH! Help. I even tested my baking soda to make sure it was fresh. So sad...really craving a Crunchie

Would you tweak this homemade crunchie honeycomb chocolate bar recipe? If so, how?

e.g. Add half a chopped onion, use less butter, shake not stir...
