Honeycomb Toffee


2 Cups Sugar
1/2 Cup Light Corn Syrup
1/3 Cup Water
1 Tbsp. Baking Soda

Dark Chocolate
Sea Salt/Maldon Salt

Candy Thermometer

Line a 9 inch baking tray with parchment paper and grease thoroughly.

Set aside a metal whisk and 1 Tbsp. of Baking Soda.

In a LARGE saucepan (bigger the better – as this will more than triple in size) over medium/high heat – combine sugar, corn syrup, and water. Stir to incorporate then leave to boil. Insert candy thermometer and continue to heat – without stirring – until the mixture reaches 300˚F (150˚C). Remove from heat and – working quickly – add the baking soda and quickly whisk into the sugar syrup (whisking for no more than 5 seconds – to prevent deflating the toffee). The mixture will begin to expand, quickly pour it into the prepared pan and leave to set DO NOT MOVE for 1-2 hours.

Once the toffee has cooled and set, remove from pan and using a blunt object, shatter the toffee into bite size pieces.

Melt Chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for 75-90 Seconds – stopping to stir after every 30 seconds. Dip the toffee pieces in chocolate and place on a lined baking tray. Finish with a sprinkle of sea salt and place in the refrigerator to cool for 15 minutes. Enjoy! All Tasty music provided by Audio Network and Warner Chappell Inc. Used with permission



  1. i've made this twice and both times it came out tasting bitter, and the center looked twice as dark as the outside. i don't know if it's because I'm high altitude or what, but this recipe sucks.

  2. The sodium bicarb is what creates the honeycomb look. A small amount is used to make peanut brittle. I just think it is so cool that people from long ago figured this out.
