Honeycomb Crunchie bites are perfect for the holiday season. They’re good at any time of year but honeycomb Crunchie bites make fabulous last minute gifts. They taste amazing and they are really inexpensive to make. You have to make them in secret though or everyone will snaffle them before you even get a chance to wrap them up! Made with just 3 ingredients and once the sugar starts to melt, you’re off, it’s only a couple of minutes more before it’s ready to pour. This is quite possibly one of the most easiest sweet treats to make, ever! It’s impressive too when you can make Crunchies for the kids instead of buying them. Yes, it’s mostly all sugar but as long as you don’t gorge yourself on them each and every day, it’s fine! Honestly!
Honeycomb Crunchie bites are great plain or you can cover them in the chocolate of your choice to make them extra delicious. Don’t be tempted to add any to the honeycomb mixture itself though or you will end up with a right big sticky mess. Trust me on that. I have tried and failed a few times. I am still working on it though. If i do find a way, you will hear about it here first!
