I could not WAIT for Monday to roll around so I could share this new recipe with you all! The Coffee Shop Series is one of my most popular YouTube series and I just love coming up with new coffee & treat pairings for you that are even better than what you would buy at a cafe.
I have had my fair share of interesting coffee drinks, but one I tried recently – a honeycomb latte, really wowed me! It is a regular latte without any sweetener or syrups, and then chunks of honeycomb/sponge toffee are added on top. The honeycomb melts down over time as you sip (quicker if the latte is hot, but also works with iced lattes, my fav) and ends up sweetening the drink and making it taste like liquid honeycomb.
It truly is a genius drink combination and I couldn’t wait to try it myself in my own kitchen. Most honeycomb/sponge toffee contains honey, so this is technically “maple comb” as it is made with maple syrup. You can also substitute corn syrup here (and probably also agave) if you don’t have maple.
Make sure to read the instructions fully and watch the video as it can be tricky to get the technique right on the first try. I nailed it on my second try after tweaking some things, so I will outline all my best tips and tricks for success!
Also, as it is summer I should mention that if it is warm or humid in your kitchen, you will need to store the sponge toffee in an airtight container or jar in the freezer. That will ensure it doesn’t get sticky or start to melt! You can enjoy it and also use it for the latte straight from the freezer as it doesn’t really fully freeze anyway.Print Print
