  • Line 8x8 dish with parchment paper.
  • Add organic sugar, honey and water to small sauce pan. Cook over low heat until sugar dissolves, stirring frequently.
  • Increase heat to medium and bring mixture to a boil. You’ll cook mixture at a low boil it turns a honey caramel color, this took right at 8 minutes for me. You’ll want to watch it carefully to make sure it doesn’t burn. I tested the recipe a few times and found I was happier with the taste when I removed it sooner rather than later once it reached the light golden caramel color. (If you have a candy thermometer, this should happen at about 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Once desired color is reached, remove from heat, and immediately stir in baking soda, whisking quickly but gently as the mixture grows in size. Pour into a parchment lined dish and allow to fully cool until you are able to crack or cut into pieces.
  • While honeycomb cools, add dark chocolate chips to the top of a double boiler. Bring water below to a boil, then once chocolate starts to melt, reduce heat too low. You may need to add a little coconut oil or milk of choice to thin the chocolate out. If you do not have a double boiler, you can also add chocolate chips to microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each, until a smooth consistency is reached.
  • Once chocolate is ready, use a spoon to dip honeycomb pieces, then set on wax paper and allow to fully cool and chocolate hardens. Enjoy!
  • Store in airtight container at room temperature.


*If using my homemade chocolate chips, you can melt on low in a small sauce pan or in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time and shouldn’t need to add any oil or milk.
