Happy Tuesday, friends!

I’m back with another DIY Christmas tutorial today – and it’s a TWO PART WONDER! I embarked upon the journey of making honeycomb fudge…and in the process, discovered that honeycomb is also totally delicious on its own. So, on Saturday, I’ll share my fudge recipe with you.

But today, the honeycomb. I was so excited about making this – it’s always been something I’ve loved and when I realised how easy it was to make, I couldn’t wait to try it!

You will need:

4 tbsps golden syrup

200g white sugar

3 tsps bicarb of soda

In a large saucepan, mix the syrup and sugar and bring to the boil. As soon as your mixture is bubbling, turn down the heat and let it simmer until it becomes the colour of maple syrup.

Take off the heat and immediately add the bicarb of soda. MAGIC!

Pour into a lined baking tray and let it harden.

When it has completely cooled, break up into chunks.

Remember to keep a handful for fudge-making later this week! I’ve just kept mine simple and put it into little cellophane bags tied up with pretty ribbon. Another idea would be to dip the honeycomb chunks in chocolate before packaging (or just eating!)

Let me know how you get on, and remember to check back with me on Saturday for a DELICIOUS honeycomb fudge recipe!

In the meantime, you can check out the rest of my DIY Christmas series featuring Sugar Body Scrub and this gorgeous little Christmas Card.

Ooooh also, I’ve just posted some earrings I picked up in India that will make a perfect little Christmas present for your girlfriend/sister/colleague/friend/wife/mother/etc! Check them out here.

Sticking around for a while? LOVE LANGUAGES AT CHRISTMAS.
