These candies are made by boiling agave syrup and raw sugar, and then adding baking soda to make the cooked sugar bubble up. Poured onto a baking sheet, the sugar sets and hardens into a crunchy, caramel-flavored candy.
These remind us of the honeycomb candy bars we made earlier this year, but we really like that these are bite-sized. This makes them easier to dip in chocolate and easier to nibble on without making a mess of sugar dust.
We can’t wait to make a batch!
