Crunchies are probably my favourite chocolate bar. It’s honeycomb (or cinder/sponge toffee, depending on where you live) covered in chocolate…what’s not to like? But now bars of chocolate are pushing 60p, it just seems like such a waste of money when it is so easy and cheap to make.
This is not remotely good for you. Although healthy alternative recipes are the aim of this website, it is also about being happy and happiness means treating yourself once in a while. Make these on a special occasion, wrap them up as a present, or make them over Christmas. Just don’t eat it everyday, otherwise your waistline, and your teeth, will hate you!
Makes about 15 pieces
- 60g caster sugar (you can use granulated)
- 2 tbsp golden syrup
- 1 tsp bicarbonate soda
1) Layer a baking dish with greaseproof paper.
2) Put the sugar and golden syrup in a medium sized saucepan.
3) Allow to melt, without stirring. Once it has melted (about 4-5 minutes) and gently stir. It should be bubbling up at this point.
4) Add the bicarbonate soda. This will cause it to immediately bubble up. (Didn’t get a photo of this stage, as it is a very quick process, you will see what I mean). Stir
5) Immediately pour into the lined baking tray.
6) Allow to cool (about 40 minutes) and break into pieces.
7) Melt some dark chocolate and dip the pieces into it and put onto grease proof paper to set.
