Make a good trayful
Making your own cinder toffee requires a little care and attention but it's worth it. Break into shards and scatter over ice cream and other desserts

Method

  1. Line a big tray with baking parchment and lightly grease with oil. Place the sugar and honey in a large saucepan with 4 tbsp water. Put over a very low heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. Once the sugar has dissolved, add a sugar thermometer and bring to the boil over a high heat. Bubble until it reaches 149C on the sugar thermometer.

  2. Remove from the heat and whisk in the bicarbonate of soda quickly, it will froth up madly – don’t worry! Immediately pour into the tray, and leave to cool and set completely.

  3. Break into shards to nibble, or crumble over ice cream or our Salted honey fudge & chocolate tart (see 'Goes well with' box, right). Will keep in an airtight container between layers of baking parchment for 1-2 weeks.

Tried this after failing a couple of times at a different version (ended up with sticky mess). This version however was great a really easy. Will definitely opt for this one in future. Tastes great too!

This is great - very easy as long as you read the recipe and have everything ready! Tasty too... I sold it at a pre-school Christmas Bazaar.

Could you use set honey in place of runny as my runny clear honey has crystallised
