    1 ½ cups Chelsea Caster Sugar
    1 tbsp Chelsea Golden Syrup
    1 tbsp honey
    ¼ cup water
    ¼ tsp cream of tartar
    2 tsps bicarbonate of soda
    200g dark chocolate, melted


    Grease and line with baking paper a large tin 28cm x 18 cm.

    Combine caster sugar, golden syrup, honey, water and cream of tartar in a large stainless steel saucepan. Place over low heat and cook, stirring for 5 mins to dissolve sugar. Brush down sides of the pan with a pastry brush dipped in water to remove any sugar crystals.

    Increase heat to medium-high and bring to the boil. Cook, without stirring, for 6-7 mins or until the syrup reaches hard crack stage (150°C) on a sugar thermometer or syrup becomes golden brown.

    Remove from heat immediately. You do not want to burn the honeycomb. Add bicarbonate of soda and quickly stir with a wooden spoon until combined (mixture will bubble and foam). Pour into the tray and set aside to cool for 1 hr.

    Break into pieces and dip in melted chocolate. Allow chocolate to set.
