Nigella eat your heart out...

A & I were watching TV yesterday afternoon & Nigella Lawson was on doing her stuff in the kitchen, we happened to catch her making Honeycomb or Hokey Pokey as she called it. He started to say how good it looked & that we should try & make some for ourselves. I knew by his tone that if I didn't help him make it then & there I would never hear the end of it, so Hokey Pokey we made. & it was a great success.
It sets in about 15mins & its rock hard - A wanted to get the hammer out to break it up but I convinced him the rolling pin would do the trick!!

It ended up being easier to break it up with your hands, much to A's disappointment.

Yummy looking colour hey...

& a taste test...
DELICIOUS & even better with ice-cream, or ever better dipped in melted chocolate!!
Here's the recipe - super easy & very quick.
5 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons Golden Syrup
mix together in a saucepan & then put on the heat until melted & bubbling. Don't stir while its on the heat just swish the saucepan around a little to mix if needed. Then a
1 & 1/2 tablespoon Bi-Carb Soda
stir quickly but gently as it will foam up quickly & then pour onto a prepared greased pan/dish.
Leave it to set/dry for 15mins & then break up & enjoy.
Use a large size saucepan to make it in as it foams up alot, I'd say the mix triples in size.
