Hokey Pokey or Honeycomb Toffee Candy {Easy 5 Minute Recipe}


Oddly enough, one of my highest rated videos is about a 5 minute glass candy recipe.  I’ve since gotten so many requests to do more easy candy videos and it occurred to me that this puffy, spongy candy that I’ve been eating since I was a kid would be a perfect one to do next.  Sometimes referred to as cinder or sponge toffee, I know and love it as hokey pokey.

    HI Angela,
    Love the Hokey Pokey reference in this post. I have heard of Hokey Pokey men who use to sell frozen fruit confection on a sticks way back in the 1800s but, I have never heard it used for Honeycomb Toffee. I like it:) And, I happen to love Honeycomb Toffee too which I haven’t had in mucho years, lol…Yours looks so tempting, I may need to consider whipping some up when the kids come to visit. Thanks for sharing, Angela…
