  • Prep time 5 mins
  • Cooking time 5 mins
  • Serves

    5 Tbsp Chelsea White Sugar
    2 Tbsp Chelsea Golden Syrup
    1 tsp baking soda


    Grease the base and sides of a 20 x 20 cm slice tin with butter.
    Place Chelsea White Sugar and Chelsea Golden Syrup into a heavy-based saucepan. Heat gently, stirring constantly until the sugar dissolves.

    Increase the heat and bring to the boil. Boil for two minutes. Stir occasionally, if necessary, to prevent burning. Remove from heat. Add the baking soda and stir very quickly - the mixture will froth up rapidly.

    Pour into prepared tin immediately. Leave until cold and set then break into pieces.

    Coat hokey pokey pieces in melted chocolate for an extra special treat!

i dont like hokey pokey

This is the best hokey pokey I have ever made! Its so good!!


easy and delicious! These were a hit with my friends. You can also use a bit of blackstrap molasses to make them healthier and a bit more toffee-like, and/or stir in melted chocolate or nuts at the end. Five stars.

Yummy I made mine blue

Could I use maple syrup instead?
CHELSEA: we haven't tried this hokey pokey recipe with maple syrup instead of golden syrup, but think it is definitely worth a try!


AWESOME! Simple ingredients, and the baking soda puffing it up makes it look sooooo cool... Who knew making hokey pokey was so easy? Also we melted chocolate and coated it. When it hardened it was just like a crunchy bar! 5 stars from me!

Amazing they are huge hit for the kids they love them x

It is great and very simple.
