How to prepare the chocolate honeycomb toffee
It may look like it’s difficult to make but it is actually very easy. You will definitely need a cooking thermometer and to carefully follow all the recipe steps, as you will work with a very hot dish.
Start by lining with parchment paper a 8-inch (20cm) square baking pan, that is at least 2.3 inch (6cm) deep.
In a large pan, mix together the water, sugar, glucose and honey. Heat until the ingredients dissolved. Put the thermometer into the pan and let the ingredients boil until the temperature reaches 295 F (146C).
Immediately take the pan off the heat and add the baking soda all at once, stirring at the same time. The mix will start to rise very quickly, at this point stop the stirring and while it’s still bubbly and hot, pour it into the prepared pan. Leave it to cool completely, for about 2 hours, until the toffee becomes hard like candy. Take it out from the pan, remove the parchment paper, and place it on a cooling rack. Under the cooling rack put a large tray, so that you don’t make a big mess when pouring the chocolate.
Melt and temper the semisweet chocolate. I recommend tempering the chocolate, otherwise it won’t cool fast enough and you’ll make a big mess. Pour half of the chocolate all over the honeycomb, cover the edges as well, let it cool completely, then flip it upside down and pour the remaining chocolate on the bottom. For decoration, I used Oreo crumbs and almond flakes, but you can put whatever sprinkles you have in the kitchen. Now you can cut or break it in chunks. Store it in an airtight container at room temperature.
