This honeycomb recipe was incredibly simple and it took me 10 minutes from start to finish to get it into the baking tray and setting. Today I am going to share with you just how easy this recipe is so you can make your own delicious honeycomb in next to no time!


A delicious golden honeycomb recipe ready in minutes.

Course Dessert
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 200 g golden caster sugar
  • 5 tbsp golden syrup
  • 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda


  1. Combine the sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan, on the lowest heat setting. Then you want to melt them together until they form a paste.

  2. Heat the mixture gently for around 4-5 minutes. Try to ensure that the mixture does not boil up until the grains of sugar have dissolved into the golden syrup.

  3. After around 4 minutes, when the temperature reaches 140c-150C, remove this from the heat. This should ensure the honeycomb sets perfectly for you and doesn’t turn into a sticky mess.

  4. Remove the pan from the heat, give it around 30 seconds for some of the bubbles to die down and then stir in the bicarbonate of soda. Within seconds of stirring this in the mixture begins to rise up, another 10-15 seconds of stirring will see it turn golden and it is ready to pour into the baking tray.

  5. Pour into a lined 23cm baking tray. I use baking tray liners. I crossed the liners over to ensure that there were no gaps and this worked perfectly.

  6. Leave the mixture to set, for around 1 hour. Then it will be ready for cutting/breaking up/smashing with a rolling pin or mallet. 

In all this was a super quick, fun and surprisingly enjoyable make. No baking, no fuss and by boiling the saucepan for 5-10 minutes I was able to clean that easily too. This honeycomb recipe is super easy and a real crowd pleaser in my home.

The honeycomb tastes delicious. It looks like anything I’ve ever bought before. Best of all it was so quick for something that looks interesting too.

    Looks ace! Will definitely try this!

    If I wanted to make home-made crunchie bars, can you cut the honeycomb before it has ‘set’ fully?

      Thanks! I assume if you gave it a scoring it would make it more simple for you to break it into those shapes. I must say that it starts to set really fast from what I remember!

    I’m a professional baker… and I’ve never made honeycomb! There, I said it! ha! I always feel bad I’ve never tried making it and it’s so simple too! My son loves it so maybe I’ll have a go and make him some.
