Chocolate honeycomb brought to you by Jane Dough pastry chef Will Jane.
- 35 grams honey
- 65 grams golden syrup
- 37.5 grams sugar
- 14 grams bi-carb soda
- 30 grams milk chocolate melts
Line a baking tray with some non-stick baking paper.
Weigh up the honey, golden syrup and sugar into a saucepan, in that order.
Place on the stove on a low heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar has all dissolved and the mix has become a liquid.
Increase to a medium heat and cook for two minutes until you get to an amber colour.
Remove the saucepan from the heat, then add the bi-carb and stir in quickly with a wooden spoon.
Immediately pour the mix out onto the tray and spread out into a thin layer.
Allow to cool for about an hour at room temperature, or place in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
Crack into bite sized pieces.
Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl in the microwave in 20 second increments, stirring in between.
When the chocolate is melted, dip the honeycomb in the chocolate until it is completely coated, then using a fork, pick up the honeycomb and tap the excess chocolate off.
Place on a piece of non-stick baking paper and allow to set.

Collins Bookseller's picks
There Was Still Love by Favel Parrett - As Favel told us herself, she wrote this from the heart. A beautiful new story from the award-winning Great Ocean Road author. The Other Woman by Sandie Jones - Think you've got the mother-in-law from hell? Think again! Tore through this book. Deceit. Manipulation. Hatred at a whole new level.
The Spring Girls by Anna Todd - A modern retelling of Louisa May Alcott's 'Little Women'. I absolutely loved it. Favourite book of the year! A must-read if you've always wanted to read classics but struggled to get started.
Road to Winter by Mark Smith - Very highly recommended! Book one in a dystopian trilogy set in a rural Australian coastal town. Well written, absorbing and meaningful. Heroes by Stephen Fry - I couldn't wait to read this after enjoying his book 'Mythos'. I love his wit and humour in retelling the Greek myths.
