Hey guys!  I am so excited to share this recipe with you today!  It is a super easy candy recipe!  Yes you can make super fabulous candy flavored with yummy honey that is perfect to serve at parties or give to friends.

So first things first we love honey in our house.  We used to just buy the squeezy kind in the little bear bottle (we still do lol) but when I want to cook with honey or use to flavor candy like in this recipe I want something a little more high quality.

When shopping at Walmart the other I was browsing down the Hispanic aisle and I spotted this Don Victor Honey up on the shelf.  The glass jar and piece of real honey comb grabbed my attention and I grabbed it off the shelf.  I knew I had finally found a high quality great tasting honey I can get right at Walmart when doing my grocery shopping.

So I promised you a delicious candy recipe and here we go.  This recipe is delicious and it is gorgeous!!  It is called Honey Comb Candy because when you break into the candy it looks like honeycomb on the inside.  This candy is a cinch to make and turns anyone into a candy maker.

It is always great to have an easy candy recipe or two on hand and this one if perfect.  The rich flavorful honey makes for a crunchy, crispy, light and airy candy.

You just mix sugar, water, corn syrup and honey in a LARGE pot until it turns a caramel color.

Look at that honey comb!!  You know it's going to be good!

Boil it all up until a light caramel color.

Then the magic part happens (no pictures here because I had to work fast lol).  You mix in baking soda and it quadruples in size.  This is where you have to work fast and pour it into your foiled and greased pan.

When it is all good I just drop it on the counter to break it into pieces.  The baking soda is what gives this candy all it’s nooks and crannies.  See how amazing it looks!

This candy is lovely on it’s own.  A jar of this would brighten anyone’s day.  See how much it looks like a real honey comb?  Tastes like one too!

  It is wonderful on it’s own, but we are going to kick it up a notch!  Dipping the honeycomb candy in melted chocolate not only makes it incredibly decadent but it help preserves the delicate candy.

Now to just make it a little bit more special I took the honey comb and cut off a little piece and topped each chocolate covered piece.

Ingredients
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 3 tablespoons Don Victor honey
  • ⅓ cup corn syrup
  • 4 teaspoons baking soda
  • Melted semisweet chocolate
Instructions
  1. In a large saucepan, gently combine the sugar and water then add the honey and corn syrup.
  2. Boil until amber colored and the sugar looks like caramel. Do not let it get too dark, I would take it off right before you think it is dark enough.
  3. Add the baking soda, and with a wooden spoon, stir in gently. It will foam up a lot.
  4. Pour the mixture into a foil and greased 9x13, and let cool. Break into pieces.
  5. Melt your semisweet chips in the microwave in 30 second intervals until completely melted.
  6. Dip the candy pieces into the chocolate and place on wax paper.
  7. Top each candy with a bit of the honey comb.

So don’t be scared!  You too can make this fantastic candy and wow your friends.  Do be careful anytime you are working with melted sugar.

Now don’t forget when you are at Walmart looking for your jar of Don Victor honey it is located on the Hispanic aisle.

Speaking of Don Victor did you know they also have a variety of fabulous products?  The have some amazing whipped honeys is flavors like cinnamon, caramel and cocoa, yum!!  I think these would be fabulous slathered on toast.

    There is a chocolate bar in Canada that is like this – a Crunchie. I would love to be able to copy it and this looks like it fits the bill. Thanks!

    I have tried this twice tonight and both times it has been very tasty, but sticky. Like rip out teeth sticky. It foams up so pretty in the pot, but it flatens out pretty fast once I pour it on the sheet. Any ideas?

      Hi! I am so glad to hear you are trying this recipe, so sorry you are having trouble with it :( Candy making can be a little fickle sometimes but I can suggest 2 things, one you might need to let it cook a little longer you want the mixture to get up to 300 degrees, if you do not have a candy thermometer (dont worry I dont lol) just have a glass of cold water and drop a bit of the mixture in it, you want it to be at the hard crack stage where it form hard brittle threads when dropped in the water. Also ensuring that your baking soda is fresh could also help. :)

    Am currently waiting somewhat patiently for my batch to cool. Looking good so far. Boiled and stirred for approx 15 min. The “liquid” in pot not deep enough to use candy thermometer so just eyeballed. Gots me fingers crossed.

    There’s candy called sponge candy here in WNY that’s almost the same thing, but without all the holes!

    We had Crunchie in England it is like this, I made it but I thought it ended up too thin would try a smaller tin next time. Love the honey too.
