Instructions – Join us ‘Live’ on 14th Feb 1:00pm
Firstly line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
Then heat the golden syrup, sugar and water gradually in a pan to 155C. Heat the mixture slowly and take care not to burn the sugar, a good thermometer is a real help with this.
Now whisk in the bicarbonate of soda quickly into the pan and as the sugar begins to foam up pour it out into the lined baking tray.
Allow the honeycomb to cool.
Once cool you can then break the honeycomb into pieces and store in an airtight container.
Zest 2 oranges
100g Fresh Orange Juice
Heat all the ingredients together in a pan to a simmer, then remove from the heat and allow to cool.
Olive Oil Emulsion
100g Soy milk
100g olive oil
Combine the ingredients in a jug and blend together to form a stable emulsion with a single cream like consistency.
400g Dark Chocolate
200g Orange Syrup (see above)
200g Olive Oil Emulsion (see above)
Melt Chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water
Off the heat stir in the syrup little by little.
Then bit by bit add in the olive oil emulsion.
Finally pour out the chocolate mixture and pour it into small glasses or bowls to set.

Bring your chocolate pots to room temperature for an hour if they have been refrigerated, then garnish each pot with a couple of pieces of honeycomb.
