  • 100ml water
  • 1tsp bi-carb soda

  8. Sift your bi-carb soda a second time into the saucepan with your toffee.
  9. Working quickly now, using your whisk mix your bi-carb soda into your toffee. Stir gently, and only as much as it necessary to incorporate you bi-carb soda.
  10. Immediately pour your honeycomb into your pre-prepared tin in the water bath.
  11. Allow to sit for 30 - 40 minutes to cool.
  12. Remove your honeycomb from the tin, break it up, and enjoy!
