Mary Berry’s Real Honeycomb Ice Cream

Honeycomb Ice Cream by Mary Berry

While enjoying a coffee with my neighbour, Emma, she mentioned one of her favourite recipes – Mary Berry’s Real Honeycomb Ice Cream.  Not only is it fun to make your own honeycomb (older kids will love helping on this one) it is also super scrummy. In fact, it is a hit with both kids and adults alike. No ice cream machine required and this heavenly Honeycomb Ice Cream can, of course, be made in advance. Best of all, this recipe is foolproof so, in the nicest possible way, what are you waiting for?

Mary Berry Real Honeycomb Ice Cream

Honeycomb Ice Cream

Ingredients
4 tablespoons golden syrup
150g caster sugar
2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
600ml double cream
397g (1 tin) full-fat condensed milk

How to prepare
(Or click here to watch Mary’s video)

Put the syrup and sugar into a large deep saucepan and stir over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved and turned into a golden caramel colour.

Remove from the heat and tip in the bicarbonate of soda, stir until it is evenly incorporated and foaming. Then tip the honeycomb onto baking paper – do not touch it as it will be burning hot. Leave for about 20 minutes to cool and solidify.

Meanwhile whip the cream in a large bowl until it has soft peaks. Then pour in the condensed milk and stir to combine.

Now break the honeycomb into bite size pieces. Save a third of the honeycomb and fold the rest into the ice cream mixture.

Pour the ice cream mixture into a loaf tin lined with cling film, cover with more clingfilm and freeze for 6 hours or overnight.

Turn out onto a serving dish and top with the remaining honeycomb.

I’ve made this ice cream 3 times now, and every time it hits the spot! We love it. So simple, especially for those like me that won’t buy an ice cream maker. Will be experimenting with it next time, and adding hazelnut praline and serving with fresh fruit. Yum!!

I see what you mean. I actually meant I don’t know of a Vanilla ice cream recipe by MB that was egg free. I have changed my reply, so hopefully clearer now! Best wishes, Grace

I made this ice cream and while it was delicious, it had what appeared to be frozen bits of cream. Did I just not blend it enough with condensed milk?

Hi Julie. That’s never happened to me so I can’t be absolutely sure. But quite possibly you are right about needing more blending. Best wishes, Grace

Hi and my question is about the bicarbonate of soda, please… Is it the normal kitchen one or the other one from the chemist? Thank you so much and my best wishes!

Hi Teresa. I believe they are the same thing. Bicarb of soda can be used for lots of things apart from cooking: https://www.yours.co.uk/lifestyle/home/articles/30-extraordinary-uses-for-baking-soda
To be sure though, I would stick to the bicarb from the supermarket. Best wishes, Grace

Oh dear! Sorry to hear that. It may have been that the final temperature was too low? Best wishes, Grace

Hi Debbie. Truth is, I don’t know. I have never tried it and MB doesn’t give any alternatives in her recipe. If you do try it would be very grateful if you let us know how it turns out. Have a wonderful Christmas, best wishes, Grace
