55ml honey

40ml maple syrup

60g butter

1/2 tbs baking soda

250g chocolate, melted

Take off the heat.

Add bi-carb soda.

Stir until golden and foamy.

Pour into a cake pan that has been lined and greased.

Set aside till cooled and hard.

Top with chocolate.

Notes on the Recipe

I would use milk chocolate, simply because I feel the whole thing would be too rich if you used dark chocolate. But you can use dark chocolate.

This honeycomb has a little sharper flavour to it, I assume because of the maple syrup. It’s more Crunchie than Violet Crumble.

It goes a bit mental when you chop it, so don’t expect neat and tidy squares, rather irregular shards.

I salted my mixture…don’t know if this makes a difference, but I like to salt super sweet things.

This mixture doubles easily.

I tried making cookies with this honeycomb, but they didn’t work out so well. All the honeycomb melted and left huge craters in the cookies.
