Homemade Honeycomb & Crunchie Bars Hi Bold Bakers! Since airing my No Machine
Homemade Ice Cream video, I’ve had a lot of requests to show you how to make honeycomb.
I’m happy to do this because it’s really easy, impressive, and also my mom’s favorite! Also
I’m releasing a new video tomorrow as part of a collaboration with Entertaining with
Beth so make sure you stay tuned until the very end of this video to get a sneak peek
at what’s to come. So let’s get baking! In a heavy bottom sauce pan, add in your sugar
and your golden syrup or honey Gently let these two ingredients melt but
don’t let it simmer yet. When all the sugar is dissolved turn up the heat and let it simmer for 3 minutes when you get this lovely maple syrup color. At this point you want to have your whisk
ready to go. As you can see, the caramel has gotten darker.
It has a really nice smell to it. So we’re going to go really quickly in with our bicarbonate
soda. We’re going to whisk and stand back. Look at that. Amazing! Look at all those bubbles.
Now take it off the heat and pour it immediately onto your prepared
surface. Take care not to touch the mix until it goes
cold. Look how lovely and bubbly and caramelly it
is. As you can see, this recipe happens really
fast so make sure you have your surface oiled before you start, all your ingredients weighed
out, and your whisk and spatula ready in hand. Honeycomb is like caramel lava but it’s not
just for mixing into your ice cream. I’m going to show you another tip of what you can do
with it once it goes cold. If you haven’t already done so, now is a really
great time to subscribe. And for mobile and tablet viewers, the subscription button can
be found right here and if you like what you see the like button can be found right here. When your honeycomb goes cold, lift it off
the surface and break it apart into pieces. When you crack your honeycomb open, you can
see all the beautiful airy holes on the inside. And this is why they call it honeycomb. Break your honeycomb into the sizes that you
want. For those of you who have ever had a Crunchie
bar, that is exactly what this tastes like. Mmmmm. Honeycomb is a great treat by itself but even more delicious when you mix it into my homemade ice cream base. So that tip I was telling you about earlier We are going to dip our homemade honeycomb
into melted chocolate and we’re going to make our very own Crunchie bars. To make your homemade Crunchie bars, take your broken honeycomb dip it in your lovely melted chocolate. Give
it a toss around Let all this chocolate drip off Then take it out and let it dry on a wire
rack. When the chocolate sets you will have your very own BIG & BOLD homemade candy bar! Now you know how to make your own honeycomb
for ice cream and for Crunchie bars. Make sure to come back tomorrow where I’m collaborating
with Entertaining with Beth to bring you a beautiful Butterscotch Pudding and Beth is
making a Tortellini Pesto Salad. Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel and
I’ll see you for the next episode of Bigger Bolder Baking.
