Easy Peasy Hokey Pokey

Have you done your Christmas shopping yet? The malls here are teaming with people… but really that’s no change from the rest of the year.

Today I made hokey pokey. Perfect for small gifts for neighbours and friends, it’s very easy and very sweet and very tasty and very fun to make. Get the kids involved once you’re past the bubbling sugar part.

Hokey Pokey

This recipe makes a small quantity but can easily be doubled or quadrupled as you wish.


50g Caster Sugar

2 Tbsp Golden Syrup

1 Tsp Bicarbonate of Soda

To make:

Prepare a large sheet of greased parchment paper.

Combine the sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan.

Put the saucepan over a medium-low heat. Don’t stir it, just watch. It will start to bubble and after about 3 mins turn a rich maple syrup colour. Take it off the heat and quickly whisk in the bicarb of soda. The mixture will bubble up into a cloud of sugar.

Pour onto your parchment paper and leave to cool for about 15 mins. Store somewhere cool- mine melted overnight when I left it out!
