This Honeycomb candy is fun to make as it foams up from baking soda creating all the bubbles in the candy making it a crispy, light candy. I love coating it in chocolate for an extra touch, it also keeps it fresh longer. A few holiday sprinkles and you’ll have a festive candy everyone will love.

🔪 How to Make Chocolate Covered Honeycomb Candy
Making this recipe is just as simple as raiding your pantry for the ingredients. It only takes a few minutes and a few simple steps.
Step 1: Prep
Line a 9×13 baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.
Step 2: Make the Candy Base
Add sugar, water, honey, and corn syrup to a large, heavy-bottomed pot and stir. Then, cook on medium-high until bubbly and a light caramel color and a candy thermometer reads 300 degrees. Do not stir. Immediately remove the pot from the heat and stir in the baking soda until foamy.
Step 3: Let Set
Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and set aside for 1 hour to set.
Step 4: Break
Once the candy is set, lift it out of the pan using the parchment paper and drop it onto the counter, breaking it into pieces.
Step 5: Coat with Chocolate
Melt chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl at 30-second intervals until smooth and melted. Then, dip the candy pieces into the chocolate and tap off the excess, placing each piece back onto the parchment paper. Sprinkle with sprinkles and serve!

It works better, but no. Just watch the mixture. When it’s a light caramel color, it’s done.
