Chocolate Maple Crunch


I can't remember where, but somewhere in a magazine I spotted the most delicious looking, chocolate covered, maple syrup flavoured hokey pokey!  Do you think I could find the recipe again when I wanted it? No way.  So here is my own version of this delicious treat, slightly tweaking the Edmond's Cook Book, Hokey Pokey recipe.

Super easy to make and really fun if you get the kids involved when it comes to mixing in the baking soda - a great science lesson! 

Ingredients
10 Tbsp white sugar
4 Tbsp maple syrup (golden syrup would work fine too)
2 tsp baking soda
100-200g chocolate (I used chocolate buttons)

Put sugar and maple syrup into a saucepan. Heat gently, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. Increase the heat and bring to the boil. Boil for two minutes. Stir occasionally, if necessary, to prevent burning. Remove from heat. Add baking soda. Stir quickly until mixture froths up. Pour into a buttered tin immediately. Leave until cold and hard.

For the chocolate topping, melt chocolate, then spread evenly over the hard and cooled maple crunch mixture. Put in fridge to set.  Once set, break into pieces and store in the fridge in an air-tight container.

Serve straight from fridge. Enjoy!!

  4. I'm curious to hear how strongly the Maple syrup flavour came through? As one time when I experimented and tried to make maple syrup flavoured fudge the maple flavour was so vague it was like I had just made regular russian fudge :(
