I had a few problems with this one, to be honest; it took a few goes with a few different recipes to get it right!
5 tablespoons caster sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
2 teaspoons water
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
Melt sugar and syrup in a pan over a low heat. When melted, add the water and bring to a boil and keep it boiling for about 5 minutes until it turns to a light golden brown colour.
Remove from heat <– this is very important!!
Add bicarb to the pan and stir for about 10 seconds.
Pour onto a baking sheet and wait for it to cool and set.
Smash it up and enjoy!
This would be lovely with chocolate on it, like Cadbury’s Crunchie!!
As I said, it took a while to get this right; see below for my epic fail (although Mr B kindly said it just tasted like a brandy snap…!!)
