Cheats salted honeycomb butter coin

(from Food for the Soul, page 34)

Let one of these butter coins slowly melt on top of toast, waffles, pancakes or crumpets and reveal golden crunchy nuggets go honeycomb within them with their sweet, caramelised crunch. Honeycomb can be hard to make and even harder to find in supermarkets, so here's my cheats version!

Time to prep : 5 minutes

Time to chill : 1 hour

Servings : 12 thick coins (24 servings)


250g unsalted butter, room temperature

4 x 40g Crunchie bars

3 tbsp honey

1 tsp good quality flaked sea salt


  1. In a small bowl, spread the room temperature butter around with a spoon (or for whipped butter, use an electric whisk and beat until pale and fluffy)

  2. Use a sharp knife to slice off the chocolate coating of the Crunchie bars and chop the honeycomb into small chunks

  3. Pour the honeycomb chunks into the butter and add in the honey and salt, mix well with a spoon

  4. Tip the butter mixture onto a rectangular piece of baking paper and move the butter to the outer edge so that you can pick up the edge and roll into a cracker

  5. Secure the ends with clips and place in the fridge to firm up for about an hour

  6. Once firm, use a sharp and dry knife to slice off coins as and when you need them, or slice them before hand and store in a lined airtight container, ready to go
