What is hokey pokey?

Hokey pokey is a crunchy melt in your mouth toffee candy that is light and full of little air bubbles.

How to make hokey pokey candy.

You only need 3 ingredients to make hokey pokey and around 10 minutes.


Golden syrup

Baking soda

When the baking soda is mixed with the melted sugar a chemical reaction happens and this is how you get a light airy candy filled with air pockets.

It is very easy to make but is also very easy to overcook and burn, once the sugar is a golden amber colour you need to work fast before it over cooks.

Make sure you have all your ingredients set out and a lined greased pan ready before you start. Once you add the baking soda you need to move quick and get the hokey pokey out of the pot and into the prepared pan, so the hokey pokey retains its air bubbles.
