• 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup golden syrup
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 2 tsp bicarbonate soda


Grease a slice tin (30cm x 20cm) with butter and set aside.

In a small saucepan, place golden syrup, sugar and water over a medium heat until the sugar is dissolved.

Bring sugar, syrup and water to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes.

Place your slice tin close to the stove and remove the saucepan from the heat. Add the bicarbonate soda to the saucepan mixing it in quickly. It will froth up, tripling its size.

Immediately pour hot mixture into the slice tin and leave to cool.

As it begins to set, score it with a sharp knife into bite-sized squares so you can break it into pieces when it is fully set.

Store in an airtight container.

Serving Suggestions


  • You need to follow the steps closely in this recipe as when this mixture froths up, it happens very quickly.
  • I like to dip pieces of this in melted chocolate to coat.
  • If you leave this out of an airtight container, the honeycomb begins to dissolve — so store it away quickly.
