Chocolate Dipped Honeycomb

Christmas is all about giving back to your community, dinners with friends and family and of course the gifts. Which makes the holidays an expensive time of year. Gifting specialty homemade treats is a great hostess or for a gift exchange present. That Is why gifting food, made with love (of course), are a great way to lower your expenses this holiday season. 

 

This chocolate dipped honeycomb  is such an easy recipe and you more than likely have ALL the ingredients in your pantry. Honeycomb is a crunchy toffee treat that’s been around for ages, and is typically associated with the holidays. This treat is super easy to make and looks like it was made professionally! It takes 20 minutes from start to finish, so let’s get cracking! 

Pro Tips

  • Making any type of candy requires a candy thermometer. Sugar is very finicky and once it reaches a certain temperature, you can’t go back. When making candy stick to the directions as precisely as possible!
  • To make the honeycomb even more special, find a nice gift box to put them in. The dollar store or any department store is stocked with beautiful boxes for cheap! Pick up a few and give yourself a pat on the back for pulling a Martha Stewart during the holidays. 
  • Honeycomb is characterized by its bubbly center. To keep as many of the bubbles as possible, do not touch the baking dish once the mixture has been poured in, just let it settle on its own.

Here's What You're Gonna Do

First, measure out all your ingredients, this recipe comes together very quickly so you need to have everything prepared. 

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add the sugar, water and honey, allow it to reach 300 F without mixing it. 

Once your sugar reaches 300 F add the baking soda and whisk, once combined quickly transfer it to your prepared baking dish. Do not touch it or try and even it out, let the honeycomb do it’s thing. 

Allow it to cool for 20 minutes then remove it from your dish. Using your hands break the honeycomb into small pieces. 

Melt the chocolate and dip the honeycomb into the chocolate then allow it to harden on a cooling rack.
