Hokey Pokey (as it’s known in Cornwall) is basically that childhood teeth breaking style candy that looks very similar to honeycomb. It’s satisfyingly crunchy with a bit of a chew, which, when slathered in dark chocolate (my preference) becomes a temptation too far… so much so I packed them off with my Husband this morning because I knew I would end up snacking on them all day if they remained in near reach. That’s not to say I didn’t sample the goods (or keep the crumbs for ice-cream topping, ahem) but the majority had to leave the premises lest I succumb to a hokey pokey eating mess on the sofa. It happens.

Preparation

  1. Line a large chopping board with baking parchment.
  2. Mix the sugar and syrup until combined.
  3. Heat until it begins to bubble and simmer for a further 3-5minutes until golden and smooth – do not stir!
  4. Take off the heat and whisk in the bicarb quickly. Turn out immediately onto the parchment and allow it to cool completely.
  5. Break into pieces using a hammer or very sharp knife.
  6. Melt the chocolate in a double broiler. Dip the larger pieces in the chocolate (I prefer to just dip the tops) and generously drizzle over the rest.
  7. Set aside until the chocolate hardens. Store in a container for up to a week.
