Honeycomb recipe

This golden honeycomb is so easy to make at home with the kids. They will love to see this confectionary froth up. Find more on Kidspot, New Zealand's recipe finder.



  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup golden syrup
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 2 tsp bicarbonate soda


Grease a slice tin (30cm x 20cm) with butter and set aside.

In a small saucepan, place golden syrup, sugar and water over a medium heat until the sugar is dissolved.

Bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes.

Place the slice tin close by and remove the saucepan from the heat. Add the bicarbonate soda to the saucepan mixing it in quickly. It will froth up tripling its size.

Immediately pour into the slice tin and leave to cool.

As it begins to set, score it so you can break it into pieces when it is fully set.

Store in an airtight container.


  • You need to follow the steps closely in this recipe as when this mixture froths up it happens very quickly.
  • I like to dip pieces of this in melted chocolate to coat.
  • If you leave this out of a container for a prolonged time it begins to dissolve so store it away quickly.
