Hi everyone! Here I am to start sharing my recipes with you.
I thought a lot about what would be the first recipe I would share, my children helped and said that this one was perfect. Of course, they took advantage of it and asked me to do it for them, there is no denying the children's intelligence.
This chocolate is part of my childhood and my school days. As my children cannot it eat due to their allergies, I learned how to do it for them and for me, because as I breastfeed my youngest baby I'm on a strict diet.
Crunchie is a chocolate made with honeycomb and then covered in melted chocolate. I had several attempts to make honeycomb and I finally managed to get right with the amount of Bicarbonate. If you don't use enough you don't get honey comb and if you use too much the taste will be horrible. I tried to use other kinds off sugar and didn't work.
You can see the video of the honeycomb recipe here.
100g White Sugar
3 tbsp of Honey
3 g of Baking Soda
1 Pinch Salt
200g Melted Chocolate (vegan)
1. Put the sugar in a saucepan and slowly let it melt. 2. Add the honey and the salt. 3. Once completely melted, turn up the heat a little and simmer until you have an amber coloured caramel, carefull that burns quickly. 4. Remove the saucepan from heat and add the baking soda at once, stirring quickly. The caramel will foam and it will be very hot. 5. Pour into the tray or mold, previously greased. Like dropping let's stay. Don't touch! 6. Allow to cool completely. 7. Melt the chocolate and dip the Honeycomb bars.
If you don't want to make the bars, you can just use cocoa dipping sauce, put in a bowl dip and eat.
