A sweet honeycomb, brittle, crumbly and crunchy treat
Its funny to me that in Scotland we don't really use the word "candy" all that much.
Candy in Scotland is known as Sweeties. "Can I get a packet of sweeties Mum"?
Puff Candy is sold in a chocolate bar form in Britain, otherwise known as a Crunchie
I googled Puff Candy and it goes by many names around the world like Cinder Toffee, Honeycomb Toffee, Hokey Pokey, Sponge Candy and Sea Foam, who knew it went by so many titles, something I didn't know
By no means is this healthy, but its oh so good, the sugar content is off the charts, like many things us Scots munch on
This is fun to make, its a bit like a science project, who knew that something could expand like this
When you add in the soda it foams and expands, very interesting
You will need
4 tbsp Sugar
2 tbsp Golden Syrup (can also use Corn Syrup)
1 tsp Bicarbonate of soda (Baking Soda)
- Line a baking tray with parchment paper and spray with cooking oil to grease
- Once blended, leave on a simmer where you see small bubbles constantly, DO NOT STIR, leave like this for 5 minutes, it will darken and appear burnt (its not)
- Remove from heat and add the soda, mix in using a whisk, it will expand
You can enjoy Puff Candy just as it is or crush the Puff Candy up as an ice cream or dessert topping.
Another great way to enjoy this treat is to dip in chocolate (this is like the Crunchie chocolate bar mention earlier)
