  • 50g of honey
  • 125g of glucose
  • 4 tbsp of water

Take the pan off the heat and sprinkle in the bicarbonate of soda. As the honeycomb froths up, whisk the mixture to knock it back down. Keep whisking for 1 - 2 minutes
  • 1 tbsp of bicarbonate of soda

Pour the honeycomb into the lined baking tray, making sure you leave enough space to push the lollipop sticks in the side. Carefully push in the lollipop sticks and set aside until the honeycomb has hardened

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate. Sprinkle the chopped almonds onto one plate and the popping candy onto another
6
Carefully cut the honeycomb into slices to form lollipops and dip each one into the melted chocolate first, then the chopped almonds, then the popping candy

Place the lollipops in the fridge to set for 1 - 2 hours. Serve by standing the lollipops up in a small jar, or skewered into a decorated polystyrene block
