A co-worker was singing that Archies song at work the other day, and it was in my head from the moment I saw the ingredients for honeycomb candy. And thus I needed to make some immediately. It was super fast – I think cleaning up the pot later was the hardest part. I basically just boiled some sugar, water, honey and corn syrup until it caramelized. Then I turned off the heat and stirred in baking soda.
It got pretty awesome looking. It boiled up into a foamy fluff that I poured onto a greased cookie sheet.
I let it cool and then broke it into big chunks. Traditionally it’s dipped in chocolate, but I’ve been eating so much chocolate lately that I decided to hold off on that and just enjoy it as is.
