I've been on a bit of a lolly run lately and found this one from way back. Your own version of Crunchie™ - just without the chocolate. This is easy to make and fun when you add the baking soda!

  • Bring sugar and golden syrup to a boil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer until a small amount of syrup dropped into the water turns brittle, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Remove from heat and carefully add baking soda; stir quickly until foaming subsides and mixture turns golden. Pour into prepared cake pan. Cool until set, about 15 minutes. Break into bite-size chunks to serve.

Excellent! Light and crispy just the way you want them from the candy shop. To note, the temperature you are looking for is 160C or 320F degrees (hard crack) for anyone trying to get more use out of their candy thermometer. Read More

Followed the recipe. Boiled it to the hard crack stage (300F). Added the baking soda and it expanded just as it should. After I poured it in the pan it went flat. I have no idea what I did wrong but it went in the garbage. Read More
