For the honeycomb:
– 200g caster sugar
– 50ml (4tbsp) honey
– 1tbsp liquid glucose
– 50ml water
– 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
For the brownies:
– 200g dark chocolate
– 150g butter
– 250g caster sugar
– 3 eggs
– 115g plain flour
First, put all the ingredients for the honeycomb into a deep saucepan and place on a medium heat – try not to stir the mix too much, just give it a gentle swirl every now and then.
Simmer until you get a golden caramel (the bubbles will start to rise slower) throw in the bicarbonate of soda and whisk, (it will bubble up really fast, so have a tray lined with baking paper ready!) then leave to set for 30 minutes.
In the meantime, melt the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water.
Beat together the eggs and sugar.
Pour in the chocolate mix, then the flour and combine everything.
Smash up the honeycomb and stir about 2/3 of it into the brownie mix and pour into a lined tin – try to push it down so it’s not sticking up – and bake at 180 degrees celsius for 25 minutes.
Allow it to cool in the tin, then take it out, slice it up and sprinkle over the remaining honeycomb.
